It is a common and daily operation task to accept and process checks as a form of payment in any company, especially in retail, utility, online and offline merchant industries, etc. which we call merchants collectively.

3. Invoice & Shipping Receipt Processing

Statistics show that, 96% of the invoices are on paper and have to be processed manually, which makes the cost as high as $10.15 per invoice. Many mistakes happen due to manual processing: wrong calculation, duplicate payment made, unable to pass to the right department and even losing some invoices.

5. Paper Based Workflow Management

In many industries, the company sends their staff outside of the office to provide complicated service, including on-site measurement, customized design, material preparation, on-site installation, maintenance and/or other activities. The traditional way to manage out-of-office activities is to use paper work-orders and worksheets, which leads to many problems such as difficult to track the workflow information, misreading information on paper, and unable to quickly search and index wanted information on worksheets. These problems generally degrade workflow efficiency, waste resources and destroy customer satisfaction.

ExperVision® ‘s Paper Based Workflow Management system provides whole workflow management by including the traditional paper work-order and worksheet in the control loop, while allowing the staff to work exactly the way they were working before.
