There aren’t many things that a human being cannot do, and yet there remains an awful little that we do better than growing on a consistent basis. This progressive approach, on our part, has already got the world to hit upon some huge milestones, with technology appearing as a major member of the stated group. The reason why technology enjoys such an esteemed stature among people is, by and large, predicated upon its skill-set, which ushered us towards a reality that nobody could have ever imagined otherwise. Nevertheless, if we look up close for a second, it will become clear how the whole runner was also very much inspired from the way we applied those skills across a real world environment. The latter component was, in fact, what gave the creation a spectrum-wide presence, and consequentially, kickstarted a tech revolution. Of course, this revolution then went on to scale up the human experience through some outright unique avenues, but even after achieving such a monumental feat, technology will somehow continue to produce the right goods. The same has grown increasingly evident over the recent past, and assuming one new fintech-themed development shakes out just like we envision, it will only make that trend bigger and better moving forward.

OpenEnvoy, which empowers finance teams to maximize cash flow by taking complete control of their inefficient payment processes, has officially announced an upgraded version of its AI-native AP automation platform. According to certain reports, the upgrade kicks off the proceedings by offering a zero touch setup, which translates to completely automated extraction with no user input required whatsoever. Next up, we have the prospect of effortless indexing. Here, the idea is to take everything from invoices to shipping instructions, and Bills of Lading, and ensure instant and accurate indexing of the same. Moving on, owing to OpenEnvoy’s unsupervised machine learning system, the platform can now, on its own, recognize new supplier formats, and it notably does so without mandating any training or manual configurations. Such a capability, like anyone would guess, goes a long way in streamlining the whole onboarding process. Not just innate technological prowess, the upgrade in question also delivers the all-important scalability potential at your disposal. You see, leveraging a parallelized pipeline, the stated platform can, from here onwards, handle millions of documents concurrently.

“At OpenEnvoy, we’re committed to reshaping AP automation through continual product innovation,” said Matthew Tillman, CEO and co-founder at OpenEnvoy. “Our extraction product exemplifies this commitment, providing our customers with an unmatched solution that requires no human intervention. This guarantee of 100% accuracy is not just a promise, but a core element of our service level agreement (SLA), underlining our dedication to excellence and customer satisfaction.”

The development provides an interesting follow-up to Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Procurement and Sourcing Solutions 2023 report, where it was claimed that “Optical Character Recognition (OCR) capture technology still does not provide high enough accuracy rates to achieve full automation for paper- or image-based invoices.” Luckily, OpenEnvoy’s latest brainchild solves that problem big time through a kind of extraction solution which can extract every field from image-based documents, such as photographs and PDFs, at 100% accuracy clip, thus making conventional OCR, example-based AI, template/plugin-based solutions, and supplier e-invoicing portals, utterly redundant.

Founded in 2020, OpenEnvoy’s rise to prominence is rooted in its industry-leading excellence around enabling finance teams to take control of their payment procedures. Apart from that, the company’s proprietary technology is also equipped to cut back on overpayments, controls fraud, and errors, while simultaneously maximizing cash flow and visibility. OpenEnvoy’s credentials are further reaffirmed by the fact that it has been recognized by Gartner as Reference AI Vendor in AP for literally three years on a bounce.
