Shawnee, KS, United States, 2012/04/26 - Pool Corporation will initially deploy Perceptive Software products and solutions to automate and improve efficiencies in back office business processes - PerceptiveSoftware.com. NYSE: LXK
Perceptive Software, creator of process and content management products and solutions, including intelligent data capture, announced today that Louisiana-based SCP Distributors LLC, a division of Pool Corp, will deploy Perceptive Software’s process and content management solutions to automate expense report processing and vendor invoice processing.
Pool Corporation is the largest wholesale distributor of swimming pool and related backyard products. Currently, Pool Corp operates 298 sales centers in North America and Europe, through which it distributes more than 160,000 national brand and private label products to roughly 80,000 wholesale customers.
“We needed to find a more robust software solution to improve efficiencies with data retrieval. What especially impressed us with Perceptive Software was how their software integrated with the new Lexmark Multi-Function Printers,” said Pool Corporation’s director of financial services, Don Meyer. “We already have a good working relationship with Lexmark, so choosing Perceptive made a lot of sense because of their ability to seamlessly overlap and partner with the Lexmark team.”
With Perceptive Software’s eForm technology, Pool Corporation’s data entry department will improve efficiencies with reduction of back office procedures, such as invoice printing, sorting, scanning and filing of invoices.
Perceptive’s solutions will also help with expense report automation, decreasing processing time; it will also help maximize prompt pay discounts allowing Pool Corporation to post vendor invoices into their existing system quickly. Having interface access to their Prelude operating system will provide employees instant access to supporting documentation, thus reducing data retrieval and research costs.
“We anticipate many benefits to the implementation of this software solution,” said Meyer. “With the new expense report automation feature, this will dramatically decrease the time it takes to submit, approve and audit travel expenses. Data entry of expense reports will also be eliminated with the software's eForm technology allowing automatic input into our Prelude operating system.”
