What is invoice scanning?
Invoice scanning is the process where supplier invoices in different formats are scanned in order to digitize and capture the invoice information. Companies can manage invoice scanning internally using a scanner and a data capture solution or outsource invoice scanning to an external party.
Invoice scanning and data capture are required in order to work with AP invoice automation, where supplier invoices are processed in a digital workflow that is fully or partially automated. Preferably, you would select an invoice scanning software that is included or integrated in your AP automation solution so that the entire invoice process is managed in a streamlined workflow.
