CARY, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SciQuest, Inc., (NAS: SQI) a leading provider of cloud-based spend management solutions, today announced the availability of its Digital Mailroom solution for automating the capture of paper invoices in electronic formats.

Organizations can now focus accounts payable resources on more strategic functions such as cutting costs by working more closely with strategic suppliers.

With SciQuest's comprehensive invoicing portfolio, organizations and suppliers can select the most efficient method for sending and receiving invoices, including paper-based, eInvoicing and portal invoicing. This also ensures that an organization's accounts payable department can accommodate the billing needs of all of its suppliers, regardless of size or product/service volume. The capture of all invoicing data into a single solution such as SciQuest's Accounts Payable Director makes it easy to locate and analyze invoices, streamlining issue resolution and auditing functions.

"Paper invoice processing presents an enormous opportunity to deliver cost savings and efficiency improvements to an organization's accounts payable department," said Max Leisten, market director, SciQuest.
