The Doe Run Company has entered an agreement for an extended amount of years with DataServ to use the company's Software as a Service (SaaS (News - Alert)) platform to streamline its document processing using a Purchase-to-Pay (P2P) solution.
The automation solution will allow The Doe Run Company to automate its Accounts Payable (AP) process without spending truckloads of money, also minimizing the amount of IT resources and time spent compared to using traditional software packages. DataServ will give Doe Run a digital mailroom, document capturing capabilities, optical character recognition (OCR), online workflow processing, managed storage, AutoVouch technology, and automatic reports to ensure that Doe Run gets a fully-automated AP system. In addition, the solution will be integrated with PeopleSoft ERRP, making it easy for users to get their own documents through accounts.
Doe Run has over 100 employees, making it necessary to employ this solution, which will give each a user-friendly email-based approval process that's speedy and reliable. They will also gain access to a repository that will give them any relevant documents usable for taxes and audits.
An additional scope for this adaptation by Doe Run is to reduce the amount of work its AP department has to do and improve the control they have over the accounting resources. Doe Run also gets to benefit from vendor discounts to businesses it orders supplies from.
DataServ has been serving companies with document and process automation since its foundations in 1994, and now provides a simple SaaS solution for its clients. The company has clients all over the planet who wish to lower their costs on the AP department through DataServ's P2P solution. DataServ also provides Quote-to-Cash (Q2C) and Hire-to-Retire (H2R) solutions for other types of automation.
The Doe Run Company is a St. Louis-based privately-held organization that provides natural resources to clients around the western hemisphere.
