Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, will showcase hardware, software and services ideal for treasury and financial professionals to help improve the accuracy of payments for Accounts Payable (AP) and reduce the turnaround time for Accounts Receivable (AR). Attendees visiting the Canon booth (# 1659) at the Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) Annual Conference, October 27-30, 2013, will learn about Canon’s solutions, including Enterprise Imaging Platform (EIP), an innovative middleware platform, based on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), that combines imaging technology with enterprise application integration (EAI). Visitors to the Canon booth at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, will be able to experience interactive scenarios demonstrating Canon technologies – including EIP and imageRUNNER ADVANCE multifunction office systems- to help boost productivity in financial workflows, such as AP procure to pay and AR order to cash activities. Canon combines its imaging technology and information management expertise to help finance professionals automate complex business processes with streamlined one touch buttons accessible from the imageRUNNER ADVANCE system to minimize manual tasks and human errors. Creating an efficient document workflow across functions, including accounting, marketing, legal, finance and procurement will help organizations increase their bottom line. The increased traceability and control over the information can not only improve compliance, but also provide additional business intelligence. Offered by Canon Information and Imaging Solutions, Inc. (CIIS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., EIP connects information scattered across disparate systems such as enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise content management (ECM), and stored in documents such as invoices, sales orders, contracts or applications. The platform automatically captures, processes, classifies and indexes data from financial documents, validates the document, for example by comparing an invoice with a related purchase order, and then updates relevant systems. It also provides rich document creation capabilities, to automatically produce and print professional documents, such as invoices, that follow complex formatting rules.
