Eliminating the burden of paper based processes within councils, education bodies, health trusts, and government offices is fundamental to reducing costs and improving customer service.
Councils provide a wide range of local public services, many of which create a heavy administrative burden. In order to improve efficiency and save space, councils need to be less dependent on paper by increasing their use of technology.
Councils also have to work hard to meet e-Government targets that focus on modernising central and local government and public services with information technology. A vital part of achieving this goal – and the 2% efficiency saving target – is the transition from traditional, paper-driven processes to electronic solutions.
AAC Systems works with government, both local and central, to optimise the management of documents and data to ensure compliance and introduce least-cost processing across the entire organisation.
The benefits of a data capture system include:
- Improved efficiency and reduced costs
- Improved customer & supplier relationships
- Automated workflow and processing of documents leading to lowered costs and fewer errors
- Automated approval process of invoices, purchase orders and other documents
- Improved employee morale
- Ensuring payment on time and where appropriate
Workflow management can also make significant savings and greatly improve payment terms with suppliers, bringing additional benefits such as automating payments, speeding up auditing and financial reporting, eliminating invoice backlogs and creating a council-wide transparent accounts payable environment.
