OpenText Vendor Invoice Management (VIM)

Collate is one of the leaders in the industry in the implementation of VIM solutions, with seamless integration with SAP financials. Our experts have provided excellent services for our various clients.

With VIM, invoices are processed more efficiently and quickly, resulting in a streamlined Accounts Payable process. The right people collaborate through a secure, easy to use interface to resolve problems, obtain invoice status, check purchase order numbers, approve invoices, and more. The optional optical character recognition software (OCR) uses the most advanced document and character recognition capabilities available and virtually eliminates human intervention in the invoice capture stage for invoices received as paper or attached to emails.

Benefits of a VIM implementation:

  • - Minimize invoice processing time, optimize efficiency
  • - Increase ROI and save money
