New Add-ons, Available Only in North America, to Automate Time-Consuming Back Office Processes
Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, announced today the release of three new extensions that streamline financial and back office operations for Epicor BisTrack users in North America. Designed for dealers and distributors of lumber, building materials and construction supplies, the new BisTrack add-ons allow users to automate the time-consuming, labor-intensive processes of invoice handling and tax management. It also offers convenient, lower-cost payment options to their account-based customers.
“These automations are expected to save Epicor BisTrack software users in North America a tremendous amount of time, allowing back office personnel to focus on higher value activities and analyses,” said Jason Parchomchuk, product manager, Epicor. “Automating these processes may also dramatically reduce data entry errors, ensure accurate tax reporting, provide customer convenience and a significant cost savings.”
BisTrack AP Automation streamlines the process of handling and processing supplier invoices. It uses optical character recognition (OCR) technology to extract pertinent information from scanned invoices and turn it into useful electronic data. The system is designed to automatically enter this data into the BisTrack system so that invoices, and the values within them, can be accurately tracked and processed in accounts payable. The scanned image is also attached to the supplier invoice for quick paperless reference.
Epicor Tax Connect is designed to fully automate the complex, burdensome process of managing sales and use tax across multiple states and tax jurisdictions. The solution’s tax decision engine helps to integrate seamlessly with BisTrack software to automate address validation, perform sales tax calculation and generate all of the necessary transaction reports.
Dealers and distributors that use the BisTrack solution can now choose to accept account payments from their customers via the popular Automated Clearinghouse (ACH) electronic payment delivery system through the Epicor Web Track customer portal. ACH Payments are processed by deducting funds directly from a checking or savings account to pay their account balance. ACH payments are fast, convenient and made at a considerably lower cost per transaction than credit card payments.
