Road to Eye-catching Landscape

The new common language will be more simple and regular than the existing European languages. It will be as simple as Occidental; in fact, it will be Occidental. To an English person, it will seem like simplified English, as a skeptical Cambridge friend of mine told me what Occidental is. The European languages are members of the same family. Their separate existence is a myth. For science, music, sport, etc, Europe uses the same vocabulary. The languages only differ in their grammar, their pronunciation and their most common words. Everyone realizes why a new common language would be desirable: one could refuse to pay expensive translators. To achieve this, it would be necessary to have uniform grammar, pronunciation and more common words.

If several languages coalesce, the grammar of the resulting language is more simple and regular than that of the individual languages. The new common language will be more simple and regular than the existing European languages. It will be as simple as Occidental; in fact, it will be Occidental.

Global Transport company selects xTractor for invoice automation

PRAGUE, Czech Republic, May 10, 2020 — With a business system from SAP in place, this world-leading transport company already had good support for many of their business processes, but their accounts payable routines were still cumbersome and manual.

XCD’s automated PDF invoice data extraction solution for SAP was therefore a logical investment. The deal was made in the Czech Republic and the implementation and ongoing servicing will be carried out through an XCD BPO partner.

XCD’s xTractor solution will enable the company to automatically digitize incoming invoices by effortlessly and flawlessly extract 100% accurate invoice data every time, and inject the converted electronic data directly in the Customer’s accounts payable electronic workflow. This will make the accounts payable process faster and eliminate human intervention entirely. The solution also includes extensive monitoring capabilities.

“Multinational companies are one of our focus areas, and our solutions are well suited for handling the extensive requirements of such organizations,” comments Carl Ellmer, Sales Director at XCD. “Invoice processing in SAP is an area where we are very strong and this order is yet another proof of that.

STIB-MIVB selects xTractor for PDF e-invoicing

PRAGUE, Czech Republic, November 12 , 2019 — STIB – MIVB, the Brussels Intercommunal Transport Company, essentially the local public transport operator in Brussels, Belgium;  selected XCD’s xTractor PDF vendor invoice extraction product to make the most of their SAP-based Accounts Payable process through easy, smart electronic invoicing.

STIB – MIVB was seeking to digitize their Accounts Payable process and further optimize their vendor invoice process in SAP. xTractor is a proprietary solution that extracts data 100% accurately from a so-called ‘[software] application-generated’ PDF file. xTractor then automatically converts the extracted data to an xml, ubl, csv, isdoc, or other structured file formats which then feeds into STIB – MIVB’s SAP-integrated AP workflow solution called ‘xSuite Invoice Cube’ (formerly known as ‘xFlow Invoice SAP’).

“xTractor is a powerful tool that enables us to convert text PDF files into true e-invoices. Once accurately data-mapped, PDF invoices received by STIB via email require no manual intervention, and the extracted data goes straight to SAP” said Sandra Spano, Manager Finance Solutions, STIB – MIVB.

A comprehensive vendor search revealed XCD’s xTractor strength in the marketplace because of its 100% accurate invoice data extraction every time, at both header and line level.

” xTractor capitalizes on the fact that PDF invoicing is the most prevalent e-invoicing technique worldwide. If today your suppliers are sending PDF invoices attached to emails, then xTractor can convert these PDF invoices into true e-invoices – no supplier onboarding required!” says Carl Ellmer, Sales Director at XCD. “We look forward to playing an important role in the success of STIB – MIVB as they progress their SAP Accounts Payable process forward towards Touchless invoicing.”

UiPath and XCD partner together for RPA for SAP

PRAGUE, Czech Republic, August 21, 2019 — XCD signs a ‘Technology Alliance Agreement’ with  UiPath Inc., and becomes a certified Silver Partner.

Technological advancements such as xTractor for RPA™ are making it easier for organisations to take advantage of the benefits of Robotics Process Automation (RPA) by reducing the dependence on human intervention (“attended RPA”).

Key to any successful RPA project is that the inputs should be in a readable digital input type (Excel, Word, email, XML, CSV, text PDFs, etc.) – and the more structured this readable electronic input is, the better the result. Robotic process automation 2.0, often referred to as “unattended RPA” is the next generation of RPA related technologies.

Robotics Process Automation (RPA) technology is believed to save companies huge amounts of time and money, so it’s not much of a surprise to see Gartner estimating the market for this type of software will reach $2.4 billion a year by 2024, from just $850 million today. Gartner also said RPA is the fastest-growing sub-segment of enterprise software it tracks, with an annual growth rate of 63% in 2018.

Processes that benefit most from RPA are highly manual and repetitive, rule-based with clear and standardised processing instructions, mature and stable, low exception rates, and preferably long-term. Most organizations rely on optical character recognition (OCR) to ‘supply’ the readable digital input for their RPA driven processes. However, OCR technology is not perfect and therefore even close to a 100% OCR accuracy rate does not exist. The fact is also that certain business processes simply require 100% accurate data capture rates to eliminate the need human supervision and achieve true “unattended RPA”.

XCD’s xTractor for RPA’:

  • xTractor for RPA™ facilitates next gen “unattended RPA”
  • Generate 100% accurate and standard input for RPA robot (XML, UBL, CSV, cXML,…), thereby eliminating the need for human intervention entirely at data input level
  • Create input specifically created for RPA (i.e. data posted to be used by the robot),including input structure, location and field unique identifiers
