Altec Customer Shumate Mechanical Discusses How DocLink Reduced Approval Times During AP Automation Event

DocLink helped them go paperless & automate invoice processing which allowed for a seamless transition to a remote workforce during pandemic

Laguna Hills, CA – March 10, 2021 – Altec, a leader in enterprise document management and process automation solutions, is participating in the Dynamic Communities AP Automation Binge Day event today. The FREE 3-hour event kicks off with an overview of the AP Automation market followed by 15-minute vendor videos designed to help midmarket companies create a short list of solutions to help them make AP automation decisions.

Altec’s video, scheduled for 8:45-9:00am ET, showcases an interview with longtime DocLink customer Eve Harrell, Systems Administrator for Shumate Mechanical. Harrell discusses the problems they had in AP including lost or misplaced invoices, and staff inefficiencies having to do everything manually on paper. More importantly she succinctly details how DocLink has been instrumental in helping them automate all their AP process for increased visibility. With DocLink, Shumate has been able to reduce their 45-day invoice processing time down to 2 days.

Curt Hixson, Sales Director for Altec who interviews Harrell comments, ”Shumate’s experience is a classic story for how our customers experience significant benefits and quick ROI by implementing DocLink. The company has been able to automate everything in their AP process from how an invoice comes into DocLink and gets coded using OCR, to creating workflows to send invoices through for required approvals. And when COVID hit they didn’t skip a beat – DocLink’s digital capabilities enabled everyone to work from home instantaneously. We’re excited to share their experience with others and looking forward to connecting with and helping more companies achieve the same results.”
