Lexmark’s Perceptive Software announces that Buffalo, New York-based Catholic Health will deploy Perceptive Capture and Perceptive Content to complement the Infor Financial Management (FM) and Human Capital Management (HCM) Suites being implemented by the health system at its corporate finance and human resources offices.
Catholic Health selected Perceptive Capture and Perceptive Content based on the technology’s ability to seamlessly integrate with the Infor applications. Of special significance is the Perceptive Connector for Infor Lawson AP Invoice Automation software which was jointly developed by Infor and Perceptive Software to simplify invoice entry, automate invoice coding and approvals and provide fast access to invoice images and related information.
The new system will create an electronic back office, helping finance staff to simplify invoice entry, enhance automation, provide fast access to any relevant invoice content and ease compliance concerns with readily available invoice and purchasing data. The human resources department will create an electronic employee file, eliminating paper documents for all 8,500 employees.
Perceptive Software and Infor Lawson applications have been tightly integrated using Web services and Infor Process Automation. Together they automate the recognition and extraction of invoice data and streamline invoice processing with a complete, highly-efficient accounts payable solution that enables straight-through processing and image enablement of all AP transactions.
Perceptive Software boosts efficiency within human resources departments as automated onboarding simplifies the process of bringing new employees into the system and getting them up to speed more quickly. It lays the groundwork for a perpetual, electronic employee file that documents the complete employment life-cycle and enables more robust security measures that restrict access to sensitive personnel information.
Perceptive Intelligent Capture accurately sorts paper and electronic invoices based on their content, lifts critical information based on its context, validates it and seamlessly passes it to Infor Lawson applications. Perceptive’s underlying, proprietary technology abandons traditional template- and rules-based approaches to data capture in favor of advanced pattern-recognition techniques that work like the human mind.
Perceptive Content’s tight link with Infor Lawson applications creates efficiency by putting information at an employee’s fingertips. Perceptive Content greatly reduces the amount of paper that organizations produce and store, providing the ability to circulate and protect valuable content, regardless of format, through its entire lifecycle.
Perceptive Capture and Perceptive Content are part of Perceptive Software’s Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution suite used by organizations to create, store, distribute, discover, archive and manage unstructured content (such as scanned documents, PDF files, photos, rich media and medical images), and ultimately analyze usage to enable organizations to deliver relevant content to users where and when they need it.
Catholic Health is an existing customer of Lexmark Managed Print Services (MPS).
“We chose Perceptive Software based on their overall solutions for healthcare, expertise with Infor Lawson applications and technical capabilities for supporting our rollout of the Infor Lawson system,” said David Macholz, VP, finance, corporate controller, Catholic Health. “The Perceptive Connector provides a single integration point for all Infor Lawson financial accounting transactions, helping us simplify invoice entry and extend AP automation while avoiding expensive software customizations.”
"Perceptive Software provides Catholic Health with advanced tools to manage all the unstructured content associated with a growing volume of business transactions,” said Jeff Timbrook, global vice president healthcare, Perceptive Software. “Our tight integration with Infor products helps healthcare delivery organizations eliminate processing inefficiencies, optimize payment cycles, improve record retention and compliance and ease access to financial and HR information across the enterprise.”
