IDR Systems (Intelligent Document Recognition), in areas like invoice capture, typically offer a return on a user’s investment in less than 12 months—mainly as a result of reduced labor costs related to data entry. In a recent survey on invoice processing conducted by IAPP-TAWPI, 75% of respondents said that automated data capture technology reduced their invoice processing costs by up to 25%, and another 15% estimated it reduced costs by 25-75%. In addition, respondents cited increased visibility of their processes, faster invoice turnaround time, and fewer errors as major benefits of their IDR implementations.
