FastAP for IFS


Tucson - Arizona - US


June 12, 2012 - PRLog -- In May, Astra joined more than 175 representatives from approximately 60 IFS customers at the IFS user group meetings around the Country to discuss Apps 8 which is ready for general release in June.  Apps 8.0 includes 351 enhancements over Apps 7.5, which itself added more than 700 enhancements to its predecessor, Apps 7.0.  

At the meetings Astra spoke with many companies planning to upgrade to Apps 8 about FastAP for IFStm which is an organic extension of the IFS Financials’ AP Module.  

FastAP for IFStm is an end-to-end automation solution for processing supplier invoices.  Astra’s solution combines the advanced data capture of INVOICES by ReadSoft, a global leader in the AP space, with the automated receipt-to-invoice-to-PO matching and workflow approval routing functionalities of the IFS Supplier Invoice Workflow module (available for Apps 7.5 SP5 and higher).  FastAP also includes Astra’s APConnectfor IFS which seamlessly transfers the invoice data and electronic images to the IFS AP module.  

“We’re finishing up a couple of FastAP implementations right now and are in the planning stage for multiple site installations for a new customer in the second half of 2012,” commented Naren Velu, President & CEO of Astra.  “Our experience with the IFS community is telling us that that they are ready to move to AP automation and that they trust a solution that is designed for IFS Applications by Astra.  We have included the IFS Supplier Invoice Workflow module in our product, rather than third party software, to give our customers the benefit of the excellent support and dependable upgrade path that IFS provides."  Astra is a Product and Services Partner of IFS and a ReadSoft Platinum Partner.
