Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is OCR scanning?
    Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology is used as part of an end-to-end accounts payable automation solution. OCR scans documents to automatically extract data. During invoice processing, OCR technology scans incoming invoice documents to extract fields like invoice number, purchase order number, supplier and invoice amount, therefore eliminating manual data entry work. Be aware of two different types of software: template-based and AI-based OCR technology. Template-based solutions require you to set up a template for every document that is formatted differently. If you are dealing with hundreds of suppliers who have different document layouts, a template-based solution quickly becomes unviable. An AI-based solution on the other hand intelligently understands where to find the required information and is therefore more appropriate for dealing with large volumes of unstructured data. AI-based OCR technology also learns over-time and therefore continuously increases the amount of invoices that can be processed automatically.
  • What is accounts payable automation?
    Accounts Payable (AP) Automation is technology that automates manual accounts payable tasks from receiving to paying an invoice. Typically those tasks include extracting invoice data from PDF documents through Optical Character Recognition (OCR), matching invoice data with purchase order data, streamlining the approval process through workflows, scheduling payments and automating reconciliation. Organisations that process a high volume of invoices benefit the most from accounts payable automation because they can eliminate significant amounts of low value tasks like manual data entry and reconciliation work. Additionally, accounts payable automation enables organisations to speed up time to financial close and reduce payment and accounting errors.
  • How does Relay's AP automation work with my existing systems?
    Relay's AP automation seamlessly integrates with your technology stack. Typically, Relay integrates with your existing systems to pull purchase order data. This is then matched to the data on the invoice to speed up invoice processing and reduce manual work. Relay also integrates with your accounting software so invoice and payment data are auto-synced to your GL.
  • How do we choose an accounts payable automation platform?
    Implementing an accounts payable solution can be the starting point to building a future-proof financial operating system for your organisation. When choosing an AP automation platform, you should partner with a vendor who can enable your long-term goals while delivering short-term ROI. To understand more, you can book a free consultation at
