Astra Presents Webinar Showcasing FastAP for IFS Applications - AP Automation for the IFS Community

Astra introduced FastAP for IFS Applications to the IFS Community in its September 21, 2011 webinar. This solution delivers advanced invoice data capture, integration into IFS Applications and the IFS Supplier Invoice Workflow – einvoice module.
Oct. 8, 2011 - PRLog -- Following  the announcement of their Product Partner Agreement in August, Astra and IFS presented their first webinar detailing the end-to-end functionality of FastAP for IFS Applicationstm  in September.  “This is the first time that the IFS Community has had available a complete, integrated AP automation solution within IFS Financials”, said Naren S. Velu, President and CEO of Astra.  “Unlike third party software that requires your AP staff to process invoices using two separate systems, FastAP for IFS Applicationstm  allows your staff to do all processing directly within your IFS AP module.  That is a major advantage.”  

For current users of IFS Financials (Version 7.5, SP5 or higher), Astra’s new solution means that this is the time to add IFS Supplier Invoice Workflow to their existing Accounts Payable module.  For customers running an earlier version of IFS Applications, FastAP for IFS Applicationstm  provides an excellent incentive to upgrade.  Additionally, companies who are considering migrating to IFS Applications from their present ERP system now have yet another significant reason to choose IFS.  

In addition to being a Product Partner of IFS, Astra has been an IFS Technical Services Partner for several years.  Astra has chosen ReadSoft’s INVOICES software as the data capture component of FastAP for IFS Applicationstm .  ReadSoft is a global leader in advanced data capture for Accounts Payable with more installations world-wide than any other company.   Astra is a Platinum Partner of ReadSoft and the recipient of ReadSoft’s Rising Star Partner Award for 2011.  

Astra is the natural choice to guide IFS customers in achieving the benefits of AP automation.  “We know IFS; we know AP processing; and we know AP automation software,” said Mr. Velu.
