  • 1.  Scan - Mapping Software to automate Sales Order Entry

    Posted 21 days ago

    Does anyone have scanning software they would recommend?  We are looking to scan customer PO's, map and automate the sales order entry process.  May expand to payables at a later date.

    Hi, Nancy.  While my company has not yet implemented full-blown AP Automation for all vendor AP invoices, we use DocStar [branded as Epicor ECM / Epicor IDC] to capture data from some AP invoices via OCR scanning and load into GP AP.  

    We also use DocStar to scan "service" POs from some customers and create a text file to import those as Sales Order into a non-GP order mgmt. system.

    Epicor IDC -- Intelligent Data Capture -- is the OCR scanning part of DocStar.  Epicor ECM -- Enterprise Content Mgmt. -- is the document mgmt. / storage / retrieval part of DocStar (and the main module when most people mention DocStar].

    I would suggest you take a look at DocStar [Epicor ECM / IDC].

    However, if I were starting my search from the beginning like you are, I would suggest you also look into these options based on other people's comments on this board as well as another board for Epicor that I monitor:
