Processing invoices can be a repetitive task prone to human error.
Optical character recognition & other machine learning techniques can automatically extract, match, and submit this information for final human approval.
Reading invoice emails and paper documents, matching them to purchase orders, and creating accounting entries is important but monotonous work.
OCR and other types of ML can effectively read through invoices, make connections to orders, and then format them for the enterprise resource planning system (ERP).
Human error decreases while employees focus on higher-level tasks, like data review instead of data entry.
For humans, work becomes less monotonous and more fulfilling.
