Shortlist ComparisonSmartsoft never fails to amaze me in its capabilities for accurate data recognition and ease of manipulation. It is only let down by its lack of integration with accounting systems and document management. If you could integrate those different apps together to make one, it would probably be the best solution. This is pretty much what C2S (ClickToScan) have done but then they pretty much slammed the door in my face when it came to trying to evaluate more complex documents.

General commentsSeems to be a great system but has the apparent limitations of not directly interfacing with the accounting software and not offering order validation or invoice approval processes. Nor does it offer integrated document management, so there is no ability to directly access the original document from the resultant transaction in the accounting system. One big advantage of SmartSoft though is its ability to analyse and extract much more than just invoice data as well as their willingness to work with the client to find the best long-term solution to meet each client's particular needs. A prime example of this might be the desire to electronically analyse an incoming delivery note from a supplier and to use that data to automatically update inventory or later match against a purchase invoice.
