"A smooth well-executed project with Ascends great team"

What do you like best?

"SmartTouch AP has been a great asset for us, the ease of use and the OCR success rate makes using it so much better than our prior tool - the team spends a lot less time fixing what is stopping the invoices from integrating and just codes them."

What do you dislike?

"Not really sure if it is a SmartTouch issue but sometimes the time it takes for certain cells to populate can take longer than expected, but that is probably the only negative."

"SMART IS RIGHT"

What do you like best?

"I really appreciate how quickly SmartTouch AP is learning our invoices."

What do you dislike?

"I dislike that STAP puts invoices in the duplicate bin for amts. We receive a lot of invoices that are the same $ amt, & IMHO they should not hit the dup bin."

We have already expanded Ascend's ECM from just accepting Lawson reports to accepting reports for Payroll, patient accounting, and patient scheduling department. It also easily burst and distributed our General Ledger expense report to over 5,000.

We were really focused on solutions that were approved by Workday. Ascend’s user interface really feels like Workday’s to us. It's very natural to go to certain fields and say, ‘Okay, this is what it means in Workday, so this is what it means in Ascend.’ To me, it felt very instinctive.

After a three-company review, we automated our AP process with Ascend. Compared to the other two companies, Ascend was by far the easiest to use and how well it integrated with our Lawson ERP software was another big selling point.

Ascend feeds into Workday so well, we don’t even have to think about it. If something works so well that it doesn’t even demand your attention, well to me that’s when you have your most success.

The process efficiency and visibility that we get with Ascend is key. Having PO data extracted automatically and the PO image and PDF to match to the invoice is a big gain for us. We used to have piles and piles of invoices and the process has become much, much faster.
