Electronic processing and archiving of time-sensitive documents 

Processing documents quickly and accurately is a critical component of doing business. But sometimes — like when perishable products are involved — “getting it right” is simply more important. It's why businesses in the food and beverage industry trust Esker's automated solutions to process, manage and archive their critical documents. 

By automating document processes that run on paper, food and beverage companies can:

  • Reduce delays in fulfillment and cash collection
  • Avoid additional shipping costs, waste and repetition when processing fax orders, EDI orders and more
  • Automate the processing of promotional invoices sent by retailers
  • Monitor documents in real time and facilitate greater responsiveness to customers 
  • Eliminate the risk of non-compliance with regulations

Put an end to profit-eating errors. 

In the food and beverage industry, document processing errors can be a nightmare. From breaks in the chain-of-custody to incorrect product deliveries, one “small” error can lead to huge hassles, fewer sales and slimmer margins.

Document process automation with Esker is an ideal cost control system thanks to its ability to:

  • Accurately extract document data
  • Validate captured data before processing (e.g., automatically verifying the quantities and unit of measures on received orders)
  • Resolve exceptions without delay
  • Automatically integrate data in the ERP system

On average, there are approximately 1.2 errors per every 100 line items ordered in the food distribution industry.*
