The invoice approval process was completely manual and paper-based, causing persistent backlogs in Accounts Payable

On average, it took 12 calendar days to process an invoice

Manual routing of invoices provided no audit of approval processing

An inaccurate measure of liability because invoices were not visible or tracked until after approval was received from the department being charged


With MHC’s Document Express™ solution for AP Checks, Payroll, Positive Pay, ACH, 1099s and Electronic W-2s in use since 2008, this medical center expanded its business partnership by selecting MHC Image ExpressTM for Accounts Payable operations

MHC Image Express™ streamlines approval processing for incoming AP invoices, electronically distributing invoice documents via MHC Workflow integrated with Infor Lawson vendor and GL data

The medical center retrieves document images via Infor Lawson and custom reports

"It was a natural progression to expand our business partnership with MHC Software by deploying MHC Image Express with Workflow for our incoming AP invoices. We were extremely satisfied with MHC’s Lawson integration and knowledgeable project team that ensured project success. "


In 2011, the medical center implemented MHC Image Express™ and MHC Workflow with Infor Lawson vendor/GL/AP520 integration

Deployment of MHC Image Express™ was completed within 60 days


AP eliminated paper-pushing activities, enabling more time for financial control activities

Invoice processing was reduced from 12 to 7 calendar days, resulting in vendor discounts

Electronic workflow limits approvers’ access to authorized GL accounts – no more misinterpretation of handwritten GL coding

Real-time reporting to better manage accruals, audited document processing times and exception handling of problem/delinquent invoice approvals

MHC’s Infor Lawson-integrated retrieval eliminated the manual procedures related to on-site file cabinets and requesting boxes from storage when researching department expense questions or performing audit related reviews
