The impact of Document Management Software:
Reinventing the Accounts Payable Process
Every business has invoices to pay. Whether you have one clerk or a team of 20, the Accounts
Payable (AP) process is universal and one of the most heavily stricken by paperwork. The
constant influx of invoices, purchase orders and packing slips can seem never ending, one
pile after another.
Even worse, managing paper-based documents can drive up costs and
create inefficiencies in daily performance. From fraudulent charges, to
missed deadlines and double payments (yes, I said DOUBLE), the best
way to ensure your invoices are paid properly is by taking your AP process
digital.
Document management
software reinvents
paper-based accounting
With document management software, your invoices are secure and yet
always available from the convenience of your workstation. Out of office?
No problem. Users can view digital files and start the approval process
from a laptop, tablet or smartphone – and no one will even know you’re
still in bed! Alerts can also be set up to notify users when new invoices are
ready to be reviewed and approved, automatically sending the documents
in question to the appropriate recipients. Additionally, much of the main
focus of AP departments is on the three-way match. The key to getting an
invoice approved quickly is validating that you received what was intended
to be purchased, and that the terms and amounts match the invoice and
original purchase order. Document management software keeps files
organised and accessible for instant matching.
Data Entry: Visibility, Productivity & Accuracy
I get it, change is hard. But no company wants to mismanage their
financial data. Handling nearly all payments outside of payroll, AP
departments need structured processes to prevent the common mistakes
bound to managing paperwork. Document management software not only
helps organise your AP department to operate more efficiently, but also
provides advantages in productivity and collaboration, all while saving on
spend with no time wasted. What’s not to love? Let’s take a closer look at
how document management software reinvents paper-based accounting:
Automate invoice approvals and payments
Paper-based invoicing can lead to delays if someone is unavailable or out
of the office, causing missed payments and an increase in costs. Even
dropping an invoice on an associate’s desk is at risk of being thrown out,
lost or viewed by the wrong eyes.
2
What was that purchase order number? How many pens did we order?
Where is our package? With document management software, questions
like these are a thing of the past. Search via index information, body text
or even date range. Special characters can also be used to further filter
results. Voilà! Document management software lets you find what you
need when you need it. But let’s go back. Before we can search for a
document, we need to capture it. Manually entering paper invoices can
lead to entry errors and data loss. Document management software allows
users to capture the necessary data through Optical Character Recognition
(OCR). Place a stack of paper invoices on your office equipment device and
move on to tasks of higher importance. Built-in OCR capabilities will scan
each document individually, grabbing all of the key data and automatically
filing into ‘Archives.’ Set, scan and forget – OCR does the work for you.
A paperless
solution
End the Constant Compliance Worry
Do you know if business rules are being enforced? Are you prepared
to prove your company’s compliance with the SEC, FINRA or ESIGN
regulations? Document management software can help your business tie
together all the important documents needed during an audit. Purchase
orders, delivery receipts and check images can all be instantly and digitally
available to anyone with user-based permissions. These features can also
help manage compliance risks by controlling policies and having a quicker
response time to legal or regulatory actions. What about protection?
Monitoring signatures and irregularities makes it hard for companies to
protect themselves from fraud. But digital approvals identify which user
took action and creates a reliable audit trail that can be easily used and
viewed, validating the history of each and every document.
Paying your vendors on time is critical to
the success of your business. Whether your
company is big or small, with paper-based
accounting methods it can be hard to keep
track of where everything is located and
what has been fulfilled. A paperless solution
could prevent all of the issues that AP
departments face, while keeping processes
structured and well managed.

A4 COLOUR SERIES
offers rich functionality and smooth integration
with A3 devices
NEW
Konica Minolta has introduced the bizhub
C3351 series, comprising three colour
devices, to the local market. The new A4
series combines high-end quality, reliability
and solution connectivity with a large
number of customisation possibilities,
in order to meet the latest market demands
and business challenges.
>>
Smooth operation and enhanced customisation
features
“As successors to the bizhub C3350 series, the new MFPs offer
Konica Minolta’s renowned high quality and reliability standards, as
well as providing improved customisation features and state-of-the-art
connectivity options. These machines integrate seamlessly into existing
office environments, meeting high-level demands.
User interface customisation specifically allows for operators to tailor
the seven-inch multi-touch screen to fit their individual needs - by adding
shortcuts, widgets, applications or the customer’s company logo – while
enabling greater levels of efficiency in the preparation of smaller and more
complex copy, print, scan and fax jobs,” explained Greg Griffith, business
solutions product manager at Konica Minolta.
Thanks to the user interface, identical to that used by Konica Minolta A3
devices, operation is easy and intuitive. The tablet-like operation panel
supports pairing with mobile devices and services, such as Apple AirPrint
and Google Cloud Print, to further increase workflow flexibility and improve
mobile device collaboration. With its multi-touch-screen, the bizhub C3351
machine provides seamless usability between devices, including other
MFPs, PCs, tablets and smartphones.
By also using the same controller as Konica Minolta’s A3 MFPs, the bizhub
C3351 series is not only suitable as a main device in small- to mediumsized offices, but as a satellite device in large offices too.
4
State-of-the-art technology
The series is perfectly suited for offices that require high-end quality
devices with advanced technology, but with limited space available.
For the convenience of creating A4 documents, one device of the
new series even comes with a built-in staple finisher. By having
integrated state-of-the-art technology, the series presents itself with
competitively low energy consumption and enhanced environmental
performance.
PRODUCT NEWS
Using the serverless
Pull Printing Function with LK-114
The LK-114 provides enhanced printing convenience allowing
the release of print jobs on any Konica Minolta MFP in the fleet.
Documents and their information stay secure,
as printing will only start after the user has
authenticated directly at the chosen output
device. At the same time, the LK-114 relieves
IT administrators from various management
and maintenance duties, with the MFP
doubling as a print server.
What is LK-114?
LK-114 ‘Serverless Pull Printing’ is a Follow Me printing solution using
one of the MFPs as a storage device, instead of a print server, to store
and spool print jobs.
Print jobs can be received/printed at any device belonging to the Pull
Printing group, as in a regular Follow Me print environment being
based on a server with a dedicated application.
Print job release requires authentication by the user.
LK-114 is provided as i-Option and is required for all devices belonging
to the Pull Printing group.
Benefits of Serverless Pull Printing
Common benefits of Pull Printing
• Secure printing due to job release based on authentication.
• Reduced print cost and waste, as print jobs can be deleted or settings corrected before printing.
Benefits of Serverless
• No (high) IT skills/resources are required to set-up and maintain the:
1) Server
2) Follow Me application
•
Costs are reduced as no server hardware and maintenance is required
or, existing server(s) could be released from:
1) Network traffic
2) Spooling workload

PRODUCT NEWS
Konica Minolta introduces
Document Accounting Software
for professional and secure client billing
Konica Minolta has launched an enterprise platform which integrates directly into legal practice
management systems, such as ProLaw, Tabs3, PC Law and Timeslips, Proman and more, offering
an ideal option for billing back clients and matter accounts.
“The software essentially allows the legal practice to
spend more time working and less time worrying about
the billing process; of course, this has a direct effect on
keeping print costs in check through printing efficiency
and flexibility,” said Mohammed Vachiat, software
product manager at Konica Minolta.
He highlights that with its innovative low-cost
architecture, modular software approach and add-on
options, this application provides a full range of benefits,
such as:
• Allows for billing of prints, copies, scans, faxes, phone calls to clients, matters and projects;
• Improves recoveries with automated disbursement billing;
• Frees up admin staff time from manual
disbursement capture;
• Reduces waste;
• Discovers optimal deployment of office equipment;
• Better supply management;
• Controls access to office equipment; and
• Centralises the management of printing infrastructure.
LEGAL

I
Advantageous too, is the software’s capability to offer
variable pricing between users, clients, matters and
projects – that is, calls can be priced according to the
number dialled with per second charging. Its simple
administration, which aligns with environmental policies
and extensive graphical reporting capabilities, adds an
additional edge to the software.
To ensure a sound workflow of the law practice, the
embedded copier interface is consistent with the
workstation print interface, meaning users only have to
learn one system and one set of terminology.
Offering efficient print queue management as well as the
convenient definition of print policies and rules, Vachiat
points out that the solution effectively answers the legal
sector’s requirements with regard to reliable output
management.
Importantly too, because it is installed on an organisation’s server the application can also track, manage and
account for any print job produced on the network. In
addition, the applications, monitoring and accounting
capabilities can include local printers, providing full
control and transparency with regard to what is printed
when, by whom and on which device.
Users benefit from secure printing because confidential
print jobs are no longer lying around unattended in
output trays, where they might fall into the wrong hands.

INDUSTRY NEWS
PRINTING:
A tale of constant innovation in staying relevant
Few would dispute that the printing industry is one of the most innovative industries around.
This is especially true when placed in the context of the last decade or so of digital intrusion.
Print in its traditional form still has a place, but we cannot be complacent – printers must
be prepared to be continuously innovative in order to stay relevant and be able to compete.
Successful printers have become multi-channel service providers, seizing fully the print
opportunities that came along with the digital age.
Digital - mind the noise
In today’s digital world, the art of blogging, social media, the internet,
e-mails and other media has taken over and become the new normal.
At first glance, this all works towards making the previously traditional
communication and marketing channel of print less relevant. Nonetheless,
with careful crafting and forethought applied, printing still has a bright
future, especially when we tune out some of the ‘noise’ that comes with
the digital world.
To clarify: it is to print’s advantage that the internet is confusing and
cluttered with many ads and pop-ups that hamper the interaction of users.
This chaos – and the fact that most digital ads are not targeted in any way
– means, in essence, that digital advertising is not always as effective as
presumed. In addition, internet advertising is also becoming increasingly
expensive, with everyone vying to be on the first page. This means that
the client with the biggest wallet can be the most successful in terms
of getting a prime advertising placement, but if the advert itself does
not speak correctly to the target market, whether due to sub-standard or
obscure message creation or placement, the ‘win from the wallet’ does not
necessarily translate into the advert being received as desired.
Printers need to realise that they
should play a bigger role in the life
of the documents they receive and
create; looking beyond the onedimensional printing process to the
promotion of the product’s existence
across many different platforms. In
this way, printers themselves become
part of the holistic solution that
today’s communication demands.
10
The bigger communication picture
Against this background of digital noise, the print industry is, in parallel,
continuing to evolve just as it has many times before. In addition, we
can even say that, for the first time ever, the printing industry is not only
changing from one technology to another – as it did back in the day from
letter press to photo-lithography formatting – but it now has to compete
for its rightful place as a viable communication and marketing channel. We
can see that the print industry has never been challenged quite as much
as today in its position as the primary, dominant method of communication
and that of sharing information.
It is this very competition that has caused the print industry its greatest
difficulties for the past few years. However, successful printers have
learned to embrace this competitive platform to promote their ongoing
existence and further success.
In this regard, a number of studies have been carried out on the
effectiveness of print and electronic media as marketing or communication
channels. Both have their strengths and weaknesses but neither can claim
to dominate over the other. For this reason, being a printer today should
not only mean delivering output onto paper using a digital or litho press,
it should mean using electronic platforms to deliver e-mail campaigns,
posting ads on social media, as well as releasing electronic newsletters
along with the printed output. Printers need to realise that they should
play a bigger role in the life of the documents they receive and create;
looking beyond the one-dimensional printing process to the promotion
of the product’s existence across many different platforms. In this way,
printers themselves become part of the holistic solution that today’s
communication demands.
Opportunities in labelling and packaging
There are two further sustainable print products with huge opportunity
for printers, namely labelling and packaging. These two areas cannot be
replaced with digital media and still require traditional print systems to
complete any product. Having said that, label and packaging printers are
now at the same crossroads many litho printers found themselves at a
decade ago. Although we require labels and boxes for products, it’s not
to say the processes on how to create them will remain unchanged or
traditional. Even today, label and packaging printers are faced with digital
requirements, sequential numbering, variable barcodes, versioning of
labels, personalised brands, variable packaging, shorter runs and so on.
For these printers to stay relevant and to remain competitive, they will
need to embrace the digital change and invest in new digital technology
to complement their existing print processes. It is evident that the run
lengths on labels and packaging are shortening, making it more difficult
for traditional processes to be affordable, driving the change to more
profitable digital processes and printers.
The ‘sense-ible’ thing to do
In addition, print has also become more creative, engaging more senses
than only sight. Print has evolved into a tactile product as well, engaging
another of the human senses and making itself even more appealing to
consumers. With additional inventive options now available, like spot
UV coating, spot foiling, UV coat texturisation, UV spot colours, scented
coatings and an array of creative laminations, as well as a combination of
these, one printed piece can make a real difference in client engagement
and leave a lasting impression.
The following is a report from IBISWorld,
which pointed out a few things that
should be contemplated if you are in the
print industry.
‘Substitutes to commercially printed material, such as online
media and advertising, will continue to adversely affect
industry activity. The industry will also continue to struggle
as digital media replaces paper products. In order to adapt
to declining demand, printers will diversify into cross-media
products, including multimedia layout and design. Online
providers offer mailing at bulk prices, creative services and
marketing lists. These online operators will help grow the short
print-run market by offering small businesses and households
more convenience and a larger range of services at competitive
prices. Large online providers will raise the bar for traditional
print providers.
The evolution continues
The evolution of the internet and associated technologies is here to stay but it certainly won’t kill print, it’s just another way of communication,
just like using different cars or trains for travel. In conclusion, a future without print or paper would have a devastating effect on society.
Think before you don’t print.

TECHNOLOGY, Accurio PRESS C6100
Konica Minolta has launched its ‘simply efficient’ Accurio PRESS C6100 Series of colour
production printers, which are designed to support highly responsive print environments.
The fast and flexible series has been created for operations that are
expanding their services, as well as those who need to handle large,
repeated print volumes. Leon Minnie, manager of production systems at
Konica Minolta said, “Commercial printers, CRDs and related operations

With all these enhancements and industry leading technology it is of
no surprise that the newly manufactured Accurio PRESS C6100 has
already been awarded Outstanding Colour Mid-Volume Production
Device by independent and global renowned digital imaging test
laboratories, Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab. ”Superior productivity,
media handling, high quality and consistent output distinguish
the Konica Minolta Accurio PRESS C6100 from the pack, in the ever
competitive and growing mid-volume production colour space,” said David
Sweetnam, Keypoint Intelligence – Buyers Lab Director and Lab Services
for EMEA/ASIA. Over the course of its testing, the device proved it can
capably and quickly handle most media sizes and types thrown at it up to
400gsm. Air suction – aided feeding in all paper sources, a second transfer
belt, and robust finishing options all bring a level of flexibility to media,
superior to that of many of its competitors. A well laid-out Fiery print
driver and excellent job management raise the ease of use to the next
level.
“If you’re to maximise uptime, the Accurio PRESS C6100 delivers on all
fronts. The device maintains high-level output quality over both short and
long-run jobs with minimal operator interaction required. In fact halftone
imagery was to an exceptional standard even in default mode. Fine lines
and text were also of a very high standard. The new Integrated Colour Care
Unit automatically sets up gradation, maximum density adjustments, front
to back registration, media profiling and grayscale balance adjustment,
all in real time without impacting productivity. In addition, an inline
spectrophotometer allows media profiling to be conducted without
the need for manual measurements,” said George Mikolay, Keypoint
Intelligence – Buyers Lab associate director of production.
