Document Process Automation: Redwood Software And ReadSoft Announce Marketing Alliance For Document Process Automation


ReadSoft, a global supplier of software for document automation, and Redwood Software, a leader in enterprise report management, recently announced the formation of a strategic marketing alliance to provide a complete end-to-end solution for intelligent document and invoice processing for ERP applications.

This marketing alliance agreement enables the two companies to provide customers with a comprehensive offering which extends the capabilities of ReadSoft DOCUMENTS solutions for information extraction and invoice processing with Redwood Software's Report2Web document archiving and web-based distribution solutions. The combination of ReadSoft DOCUMENTS and Redwood Report2Web delivers a streamlined business process for capturing data from vital business documents and enabling secure archiving and easy access to business-critical information.

One of the key benefits of the Redwood - ReadSoft partnership is an extended invoice automation solution for SAP customers. ReadSoft DOCUMENTS for Invoices is already the most widely used SAP-certified software for accounts payable automation that automatically captures, interprets and extracts information from incoming invoices, validates against purchase orders, and posts information in SAP ERP. Customers using ReadSoft DOCUMENTS for Invoices can now benefit from the context-sensitive document archiving and retrieval capabilities provided by Report2Web for SAP solutions, enabling secure storage and access of specific documents related to the invoicing process.

"This formal partnership is a response to ongoing collaboration between ReadSoft and Redwood Software regarding our complementary technologies," said John Craig, ReadSoft's Director of North American Sales. "While the origination of the agreement is North American, customers across the globe will have access to our integrated solution for document processing."

"The Redwood - ReadSoft partnership provides immediate and lasting business value, especially for our ERP customers, who need world-class solutions for document intensive business processes," said Dennis Walsh, Executive VP, Americas for Redwood Software. "With both organizations focused on increasing efficiency of business transactions within ERP systems, uniting formally with ReadSoft is a step in the right direction."
