Difficulty accessing accounting files of over 40 companies
One of Fusco’s chief responsibilities is managing the accounting practices for over 40 separate companies. This proved to be an arduous task, and staff was having difficulty finding paper receipts, checks, and other accounting documentation. Additionally, they wanted the ability to access documents when away from the office. They hired eBizDocs, local Electronic Content Management (ECM) consultants to review their filing system.
Cabinet SAFE’s QuickBooks integration and an automated workflow solution
eBizDocs evaluated Fusco’s records as well as their day-to-day business processes, and proposed Cabinet SAFE as the paperless solution to their inefficient and cumbersome record management.
SAFE is content management software that acts as a digital filing cabinet but with the additional benefits of file collaboration and workflow, granular security control, and robust searchability. SAFE is compatible with documents of nearly any format. And unlike traditional paper record keeping it enforces a strict, consistent filing system – comprised of Cabinets, Folders, Tabs, and document naming templates – thereby ensuring that documents are efficiently organized and quickly retrievable.
One of SAFE’s hallmark features is its integration with QuickBooks. This made SAFE an easy fit for Fusco. SAFE’s Books module makes filing documents into SAFE and entering transactions into QuickBooks easy. Employees simply scan a bill, payment, receipt, or other accounting document and enter the information associated with the document type (i.e., invoice number, check number, terms, GL account and amount). In a single step, the document is indexed, filed into SAFE as a PDF, and entered into QuickBooks. Another integral piece of their document management solution is workflow. eBizDocs worked closely with the Fusco staff to design an automated workflow system. As accounting records are filed to SAFE, they are instantly routed to users for approval.
Reduced and simplified search and retrieval process and Cabinet SAFE plans for the future
Cabinet SAFE allows transactions that took days to clear the approval process to be completed in a matter of minutes. Once hard-to-find documents are now easily retrieved.
Since implementation, Fusco has expanded their use of SAFE by adding their accounts receivable records, year-end tax records, as well as other non-accounting, property management documents. They plan to add a mobile dimension to SAFE in the future. Adopting paperless records management has proven to be more than a fad for Fusco. It’s improved the way they do business.
