Ottimate Customer Story

“Everything was super manual. We got the invoices, put them into our Sage 50 program. And then print checks, fold checks, mail checks… It was a pretty labor-intensive process.

[Ottimate] has freed up a lot of time with the team who was actually doing the processing, now they can take on more work and do other things. Our time is being freed up by not having to do so many things manually. Now, I get a lot of good feedback from the managers, that Ottimate is just amazing, because now they don’t ever have to go to the post office to drop off their bills each week.”

Ottimate makes paying invoices a breeze!

The amount of time that I save in the office doing invoices. I used to hand-code everything and write everything down in a ledger. Now, I just upload the invoice as a PDF and email to [Ottimate]. In less than 24 hrs I see the invoice and code it to the right GL and they take care of the rest!

Invoices at your fingertips & no more filing!

Ottimate allows us to process invoices quickly and stores them in downloadable forms. This eliminates the time and hassle of keeping, manually coding, and filing invoices. It also tracks activity on each invoice, so there is a high level of accountability. Ottimate is helping us to manage and store files and track spending. The Vendor Pay features are fantastic for tracking payments in real-time.
