How Your A/P Department Can Benefit from Hermes Accounts Payable Automation

Invoices received from email and other configured sources serve as inputs.
The employee scans the paper and handwritten invoices and uploads them to the system for conversion to a machine-readable format.
The system stores the information in a database, and the bot classifies and extracts the required data.
The bot processes the information and sends the errors or exceptions for review by an authorized employee.
Processed invoices go to A/P ERP for payment processing.
The bot stores the processed invoices in a file for on-demand report printing.

Like many growing organizations, your current AP invoice processing system probably cannot keep up with increasing volumes of invoices and complex business guidelines for invoice processing.

  • Are you still handling invoices manually?
  • Do your employees still need to read every invoice one at a time, verify them with purchase order (PO) information and delivery information, approve each invoice, and then check the general ledger (GL) coding required for the items?
  • Does your AP teamwork overtime and on weekends to deal with backlogs?

If the answer to these questions is Yes, then it is time to embrace invoice automation! 

WithHermes invoice automation software, you can process vendor invoices 24/7 using artificial intelligence (AI).

  • Hermes uses a machine learning algorithm in its invoice processing software to learn vendor-specific data points and processes invoices accordingly.
  • The system uses AI-powered Optical Character Recognition (OCR)to scan invoices, convert the information into structured data, and transfer it into your ERP system with 100% accuracy. Exceptions get reported for human review.
  • Authorized members can access your invoices anytime and anywhere on the cloud.
  • The system generates automated audit logs and reports based on customizable filters.
