The OCR Remittance Reconciliation Solution is designed to specifically meet the needs of
customers who receive paper based AR remittance information. Through the use of Cashbook’s
OCR technology, the processing and application of AR cash can be automated.

Large numbers of remittance advices are still received in hard copy in various shapes and sizes.
Upon receipt of these remittances, AR departments manually record the payment information in
the ERP and then manually process the cash application from the hard copy remittance.

Cashbook’s OCR solution deals with remittance advices, cheque remittance advices, general
ledger listings or any other hard copy remittance document. Documents are scanned and stored
and are accessible by multiple users in diverse locations simultaneously. Our inbuilt recognition
technology identifies keys data fields required to process the cash and apply it to open AR on
the scanned document i.e. Customer, Reference, Amount. An electronic file is then created which
is uploaded into Cashbook’s Cash Application Module.

Upon upload various matching rules are applied to the file in order to electronically match against
the open AR data within your ERP. Discount validation also takes place to ensure that discount
terms are verified on invoices and discounts are incorporated into the allocation process. Users
have the ability to review the automatic AR applications (and modify if necessary), create
deductions, write off bank charges and create unallocated cash payments if required.
