But what is often overlooked is how important back-end activities are to business growth and success. Accounting departments oversee purchasing responsibilities, and without efficient, accurate bookkeeping, business would not survive. If collections weren't accurately recorded, it would look like they never happened at all.

According to AIIM research, the number and types of incoming business documents that must be managed is accelerating, causing data capture to be a key challenge in organizations today. For 67% of survey respondents, half or more of their main processes involve connecting multi-channel inbound content to one managed process.
