Naren S. Velu, President and CEO of Astra, said, “We already have received 2 letters of intent to purchase FastAP for IFStm, and we are in advanced discussions with several other IFS users. What we are seeing and hearing validates our decision to offer a product designed specifically for the IFS community, one that delivers high quality automation without expensive ‘bells and whistles.’ The net result is that companies processing 60,000, or even 20,000, invoices a year are deciding that the price is right.”
Another key insight that Astra gained from the IFS User Group meetings is the confidence that the IFS community has in their ERP vendor, IFS. Mr. Velu commented, “IFS users want the automated matching and workflow that the IFS Supplier Invoice Workflow module provides. It is an organic part of the ERP system that they are already invested in. That is why we chose the IFS module for FastAP for IFStm,"
Astra's solution also includes the automated invoice data capture that the IFS module needs as its input source. For that, Astra selected ReadSoft's INVOICES -- a global leader in the AP space. Astra’
