GRM Windows Ltd.

The Requirements

GRM Windows needed a system to automatically extract data from these documents, upload it to their accounts system and create an electronic copy that could be stored safely on their server for quick access and for backup in case of the need for disaster recovery.

The Solution

Blue Sky recommended PSI:Capture because it provides all the capability needed including:

  • Intelligent data extraction from a variety of supplier invoices and other accounting documents

  • Integration with Sage Line 50

  • Conversion of scanned images into legally admissible text-searchable PDF format

  • Storage and retrieval of documents using the PSI:Search application

Company Background 

GRM windows has grown to become one of South Wales most established suppliers of PVC windows, doors, panels and conservatories and has been supplying directly to trade and public for more than 35 years. The company takes a pride in providing a quality service, a wide range of products and competitive prices.

The Problem

The company was having difficulty storing and accessing accounts paperwork such as sales orders, purchase invoices and delivery notes. In addition, manual keying of data from these documents into the accounts system, Sage Line 50, was becoming more and more time consuming.

Adopting PSI:Capture for scanning and data capture has not only reduced the time taken to get supplier invoice data into Sage but it has also allowed us to store all our accounting documentation safely offsite on a remote server, eliminating the risk of losing critical company information in the event of a fire or flood.
