In the realm of NetSuite, efficiency and accuracy are paramount, especially when it comes to managing financial transactions. Manual invoice processing has long been a tedious and error-prone task for organizations of all sizes. However, with the advent of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology and advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms, a new invoice processing era has emerged with automation.
OCR technology converts scanned or digital documents, such as invoices, into machine-readable formats. OCR algorithms recognize and extract text from these documents, enabling the conversion of paper-based or image-based invoices into searchable and editable digital files.
While OCR technology extracts text from documents, AI algorithms take data capture to the next level by analyzing and processing the extracted information. These algorithms leverage machine learning techniques to train models that can accurately identify and match relevant data points within invoices. This technology revolutionizes the way invoices are handled in NetSuite, offering significant benefits that positively impact businesses AP processes worldwide.
