Esker’s platform allows Fuji Xerox Clients to achieve faster, more efficient invoice processing
SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 16 March 2020 - Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific announced today its
expanded partnership with business process and document automation leader,
Esker to launch its Esker Accounts Receivable solution (hereafter, the Solution)
in Asia Pacific. The AI-driven, cloud-based solution enables different teams to
collaborate more effectively and is compliant with standards in over 60
By accelerating invoice delivery, the newly launched Solution allows customers
to reduce days sales outstanding (DSO) and processing costs, while
simultaneously improving business efficiency. Currently, estimates indicate
only 40% of companies have adopted e-invoicing, but that number is predicted to
rise to 80% by 2025 as a result of government legislation or changing business
processes by important trading partners.
The Solution automates the
areas of accounts receivable (AR) that matter most to the business, from
invoice delivery and credits and collections, to cash application and payments,
allowing businesses to collect receivables in a timely manner.
The Solution is also
PEPPOL-compliant (Pan European Public Procurement Online). As a certified
PEPPOL Access Point, Esker processes, sends and receives invoices to any
recipient within the PEPPOL network. This accreditation is key to Fuji Xerox
customers, especially those based in Singapore, where the Government has
adopted PEPPOL for Business -to-Government (B2G) document exchanges.
Recognizing Esker's AR
benefits, Fuji Xerox Singapore is also one of the first companies in Asia
Pacific to adopt this solution. The AR solution has helped the company reduce
costs by 22 percent and enjoy faster payment cycles. By eliminating manual data
entry and digitising the invoicing process, Fuji Xerox Singapore has reduced
the average time required to create and deliver an invoice from nine to three
"Extending our partnership
with Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific was the obvious choice for Esker with their market
leadership and wide regional presence," said Jean-Michel Bérard, CEO at Esker.
"Combined with Fuji Xerox, we are poised to bring greater benefits to our
Customers In finance processing automation.
