Creating smarter analytics for better business insights

There’s a faster, more accurate way to get data from PDF invoices into Microsoft Dynamics 365. Using the Microsoft Power Platform, you'll save time managing the accounts payable process and drastically improve data quality.

Your AP process may currently look like this:

  • Vendors send PDF invoices to a central email, like AP@mycompany.com
  • A person opens each attachment and reviews the information
  • And then enters information into D365

That’s a time-consuming process prone to data entry errors.  However, it’s a process ripe for automation.

Make Accounts Payable More Productive

Using the Microsoft Power Platform, the Blue Horseshoe team created a solution that extracts key information from a PDF document and pushes that data to Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations.
