July 5, 2012 - PRLog -- The company has purchased all three components of FastAP for IFStm:  ReadSoft’s INVOICES, IFS’ Supplier Invoice Workflow and Astra’s APConnectfor IFS to integrate the flow of data and images between INVOICES and the IFS AP module.  Nucor’s Nebraska facility will be the first site to use FastAP.  Nucor and Astra are targeting a go-live date in the third quarter of 2012.  

Tommy Massey, manager of Nucor’s core AP automation selection team, who was instrumental in choosing FastAP said, “We wanted a robust AP automation solution that could handle our high invoice volume and was designed for IFS ERP.  Astra provided that solution and was the logical choice to manage the implementation.  We are expecting significant reductions in our processing cost and cycle time.”  

“We are excited to work with Nucor on automating AP invoice processing at its sites nationwide,” commented Naren S. Velu, Astra’s President and CEO.  “Our sales of FastAP have shown that it is the right solution for customers of IFS Applications, whether they have a low or a high volume of invoices to process. That’s because it is an organic extension of IFS ERP and we’ve priced it to deliver full pay-back within 18 to 24 months.”  Astra is a product and services Partner of IFS and a ReadSoft Platinum Partner.
