 DMR for POD's

(Accounts payable automation for Forward Office users)

When your customers need to know that the goods ordered have been received or the services correctly delivered before they will pay your invoices, you can use the DMR POD processing service to save the time required to manually process each proof of delivery document.

This DMR service provided through SCS’s partnership with Digital Mailroom enables you to scan  a batch of POD documents to a file on your Forward Office server.  These batch files are automatically uploaded to the Digital Mailroom service.  The DMR service will split your batched POD files into individual document files, according to rules you set.

The unique document reference can be extracted from each document and used to rename the file with a unique identifier, which Forward Office then uses to attach the document to the job file to which it belongs, where it will be available for viewing.

Some of the Benefits of using this service are;

  • Massive timesaving, not having to scan hundreds of documents  individually
  • Automatic and secure document archiving, documents cannot be misplaced and storage requirements are reduced
  • POD’s automatically viewable in Forward Office
