TEL AVIV, Israel and LONDON, May 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Top Image Systems Ltd. (Nasdaq:TISA), a leading Enterprise Content Management (ECM) intelligent content capture, workflow and delivery and mobile payments solutions provider, announced today that a leading web-based disbursement account company has selected eFLOW® to optimize the specialized document management services they provide to the shipping industry. The project is valued at some $500K.
The outsourcing company was keen to find a solution to overcome the bottleneck that manual data entry was causing their business. With 3 shifts round-the-clock, the busy company had reached its limits and meeting growing demand would entail hiring more clerks and even expanding their premises. Their main business of outsourcing shippers' port documentation, involving processing of invoices, or disbursement accounts, for the growing number of shipping companies they service, has reached a volume of over a million invoices per year. Manual processing of the specialized Statement of Fact documents typical to the shipping industry employ as many as 5 clerks for 30 – 40 minutes. TIS designed a prototype application using eFLOW to overcome the tough challenges and beat the competition hands down: eFLOW processed the document in 2-3 minutes, improving accuracy and enabling a ten-fold increase in productivity.
In the first phase of the project eFLOW will process the SofF documents, and then in the second phase will add disbursement account processing.
Commented Top Image Systems UK Managing Director Barry Richards, "The fact that the shipping industry is adapting to the digital world creates a great business opportunity for TIS. And this customer is a natural partner with whom to realize such an opportunity. eFLOW® will increase their productivity, save the company time and help them better respond to their customers' needs. We have also empowered them to gain even more new business; by helping shippers transition documentation to PDFs that can be read automatically even faster and more accurately with eFLOW®, we help them even further improve service to these customers."
