Bring about new level of invoice processing performance

How It Works?

Choosing the RPA Platform

While implementing AP automation, choose between UI Path, a commercial RPA platform, or an open-source platform powered by a machine learning model.


Create and Deploy Unassisted RPA Bot

An unassisted RPA bot will be developed and deployed on hosting servers. This bot will operate without any human intervention throughout the business process.


Bot Daily Initiation

The bot will be initiated daily at a fixed time, ensuring regular and automated invoice processing.


Source Access

Once started, the bot will access the source, identifying where the invoices must be processed. It’ll use pre-saved credentials or an internal repository.


Machine Learning Training

The RPA bot is trained using a Machine Learning model to intelligently parse invoices, gather relevant information, and understand the content and context.


Three-Way Match

Once the information is stored, the bot then reads and carries a three-way match. It'll compare specific invoice data with an original purchase order or contract to ensure the invoice's validity for vendors, applicable VAT, invoice cycle, amount, etc.
