Lexmark Upgrades Invoice Capture Service Solution
Tuesday, August 30, 2016
Lexmark has announced that its Invoice Capture Service (ICS) SaaS solution — integrated with Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 enterprise resource planning (ERP) — has been upgraded with new features and functions based on requests by customers and partners.
Reflecting Lexmark and Microsoft’s desire to continually improve products and services, ICS's new 1.1 release includes:
ICS 1.1 continues the extremely popular pricing and set up for the accounts payable service, which can be activated on a subscription or pay-per-use basis by users, and offers an initial "freemium" model for processing up to 75 invoices per month without charge, helping customers validate their invoice automation goals before committing to its use.
- State-of-the-art line item extraction capabilities allow customers and partners to create extensive PO-matching functionality as part of a Dynamics NAV rollout while embracing multi-page invoices with complex line item combinations.
- Rich verification capabilities are delivered through a completely redesigned HTML5 interface, and the verification interface can be activated for needed invoice review based on exceptions or turned off for seamless pass through.
- Additional workflow integration and extraction optimization features provide customers with even more process improvement opportunities to increase their return on investment.
Lexmark also announced an enhanced set of sales tools and other supporting components for partners and customers who wish to deploy accounts payable processing as part of their Dynamics NAV solutions. These sales tools augment the widely used set of materials provided by Lexmark and Microsoft, and are reinforced through town hall webinars, partner training and event workshops.
In addition, Lexmark announced a Partner Referral Program for partners who assist customers in deploying line-item functionality with subscription. This referral program allows partners to receive a monetary benefit based on a customer's subscription-based usage for one year. Partners can enroll for this benefit by contacting Lexmark directly.
Lexmark will present the solution at Directions North America on Sept. 25-28, 2016, in Tempe, Arizona; Directions EMEA on Oct. 11-14, 2016 in in Prague, Czech Republic; and at the NAVUG SUMMIT on Oct. 11-14, 2016, in Tampa, Florida.
All Dynamics NAV 2016 users have immediate access to Lexmark ICS 1.1 and the Partner Referral Program today. Users may contact Lexmark, their Microsoft consultant or Dynamics NAV business partner for more information.

In other news, Lexmark has launched several new solutions and updates specifically designed to help health-care provider organizations connect disparate content silos to deliver true, patient-centered care.
Health-Care Content Management (HCM) Viewer: Built with the clinician in mind, the HCM Viewer is a breakthrough technology that provides access to all patient images and enterprise content management assets in a single, combined viewing experience. This solution connects documents, medical imaging and XDS content with patient record systems, putting a complete patient record at the fingertips of caregivers, while reducing excessive, time-consuming navigation. With the HCM Viewer, visibility and access to all patient content is streamlined, ensuring clinicians have all the patient information necessary to improve decision making and outcomes.
The HCM Viewer is a zero-footprint, web-based viewer with URL integration capabilities, meaning there is no additional software or plug-ins required to use the solution.
The HCM Viewer allows multiple forms of content to be accessed in a more meaningful way that supports an emerging patient-centric model. The viewing of clinical content has traditionally been isolated to specific proprietary applications and archives. The HCM Viewer provides health-care providers with an alternative to this traditional and costly approach to information access.
Lexmark expands its PACSGEAR Image Capture and Connect Suite with MDR Video — Touch. This redesigned video capture device supports the acquisition of high-resolution video clips in various formats and still images from multiple sources. MDR Video — Touch then sends this captured content to virtually any PACS, vendor-neutral archive (VNA) or patient record system as DICOM objects or native content to a cross-document system registry or repository.
Video and Image Enablement Workflow for Epic is a bundled offering of software and services that address the clinical information blind spots that exist when images from departmental 'ologies are locked in systems and not accessible from electronic health record systems or PACS. It focuses on images from ‘ologies outside of radiology and cardiology, such as emergency, surgery, wound care, dermatology, ophthalmology and gastroenterology.
"The additions and enhancements to our health-care portfolio enable health providers to better consolidate and access all the patient critical content that resides outside of core patient record systems and PACS," Bish said. "Our health-care customers trust that Lexmark technology will allow them to connect, manage, view and share patient content when and where it's needed, empowering them to improve patient diagnosis, care and outcomes."
