ET | Source:ReadSoft AB
A global hotel conglomerate and existing ReadSoft customer will expand its
automation footprint beyond on-premises AP automation applications through the
purchase of ReadSoft Online, a cloud-based invoice capture solution. The
agreement is projected to reach 1.2 MUSD over the next five years and was signed
in the second quarter of 2014.
The long-time customer has leveraged the success of ReadSoft’s on-premises
invoice capture and workflow solutions at its US corporate headquarters and
shared service centers to date. With the addition of ReadSoft Online, the
company aims to achieve incremental efficiency gains with the complete
elimination of manual front-end processing at hotel sites across the globe.
The versatility inherent to cloud-based invoice capture makes ReadSoft Online an
ideal fit with this hotel and leisure company’s decentralized organizational
structure, providing an easy-to-use, location-independent service to over 1,000
hotel properties. With neither hardware to set up nor infrastructure to
configure, the company can easily scale its AP operations by deploying ReadSoft
Online to any number of properties.
“This agreement demonstrates the growth of cloud-based invoice processing both
in the US and among large enterprises, said Per Åkerberg, President and CEO of
ReadSoft. “It’s rewarding to see this existing customer investing to scale AP
efficiencies across its global business model for maximum bottom-line impact.”
