How TEAM IM Helped

The customer reached out to TEAM IM after viewing the ABBYY Vantage connector for M-Files on the ABBYY Vantage skills marketplace.

A large existing M-Files user, the customer was looking for the ability to capture invoice data off of scanned images that could then be integrated with M-Files to create a full-text, searchable object. Additionally, the data elements captured in the invoice needed to be mapped to M-Files based on each unique configuration, the solution had to support invoices in varying formats and had to be able to split and separately capture data from multiple invoices in a single file.

The goal for this implementation solution was to create a tool that could automate capturing invoice data, regardless of the format of the original document and then add those invoice objects to a well-made M-Files facilitated workflow, which eventually resulted in the processing of the Invoice in the ERP system.

TEAM IM implemented the ABBYY Vantage integration into the M-Files cloud vault. We then worked with the customer to make changes to the integration in order to optimize it for specific project needs. In collaboration with the customer, TEAM supported all testing of the integration solution and remediated any issues that arose.

The customer was very positive about the ABBYY Vantage integration. It met their short-term goals, as well as preserving data in raw format for future data applications that will help them achieve long-term goals.
