Pros: TimberScan simplifies/improves our invoice approval process in many ways. First, we are able to manage unapproved invoices in a way we were never able to before. Second, we are able to track bottlenecks in the invoice approval process. Third, we are able to go 100% paperless for Accounts Payable. Fourth, our approval process is much more secure than it ever has been. Fifth, TimberScan allows our approvers to have access to copies of every invoices they've approved. Sixth, TimberScan has allowed us to provide audit detail (for sales taxes, CPAs, IRS, etc.) in a simple/easy fashion.

Cons: TimberScan Mobile is still a little buggy. Other than that, there is very little else that I struggle with regarding TimberScan. And please note that TimberScan Mobile has been VERY useful in allowing some of our busier approvers the ability to more timely review/approve invoices.

Overall: TimberScan has allowed us to manage/process more invoices with fewer team members than we've ever had assigned to Accounts Payable. TimberScan has revolutionized our invoice approval/payment processes.

Pros: This software has sped up our accounts payable entry tenfold. I can now capture invoices that are sent to me in PDF format and it will automatically fill in certain fields for me so that I can now skip those fields when entering and just focus on the coding of the invoice. Also it is very easy to attach check copies to the invoices so then we now have the entire package from invoice to supporting documents to checks online and no more paper files!!!

Cons: The thing I like least about this software is attaching copies of invoices we pay online with our credit cards. They should make it like they do with checks. Now I have to go in and manually attach a copy to every invoice paid and that is a big job with the number of invoices we pay with our credit card.

Overall: I like the people at Core Associates and they are very receptive to new ideas.

Pros: I loved the scan featuring allow you to directly import all invoices and pay application into the system database. This program also allowed you to directly route on project levels to the approving parties. Doing so really streamlined the approval processes and helped us stay on top of billing out per completion of each scope. I felt it was very user friendly and added so much value to our accounting department. It was also very beneficial that we were able to search by vendor or job for invoices that were approved, pending, or rejected. In many cases more programs cannot allow you to quickly provide answers to those types of questions.

Cons: The only issue we experience was the image could become distorted if it was processed through the system a variety of times.

Overall: TimberScan was one of the best software's I have ever been lucky to learn and use in my job. I stream lined the accounting and routing processes within our company. This alleviated so much paper being wasted as well as duplicate being scanned in and then deleted.

Great software for accounts payable!

Pros: I like being able to scan in my invoices and see them on the screen as I code them. It makes it much easier. Also getting away from having to keep paper copies is the way of the future.

Cons: I would like the ability to attach receipts to the items we pay with credit cards like we do with checks. It takes me forever to attach a copy of a payment receipt to payments we make with the Amex for invoices that we have. I could pay like 50-100 invoices with the credit card and then I have to go in and attach a copy of the payment receipt to every one of those invoices. A very long process!

Overall: We got rid of paper files and that is tremendous!!!

TimberScan has increased our processing time tremendously making the process smooth and efficient.

Pros: The ease of use and versatility. Being able to process invoices from anywhere whether we are in the office or on jobsite allows for the ease of mind that our records are always current and up-to-date. We never have to question whether or not we have invoices waiting to be entered because they are right there for all of us to see where they are in the approval process. The Crystal Reports have also helped tremendously in keeping our job costs in check.

Cons: We have compatibility issues frequently. Right before updates are due or right after they are installed, we get several error messages that are frustrating. Often times, we also have invoices with 100+ pages which slows down and often freezes the system.

Overall: Ease of use. Faster processing times. Flexibility.

Pros: Ability to run reports with all the invoices attached. Documentation of approval flow. Ability to inquire for status anywhere in the process (though if it has been exported and not posted and synced, it is in limbo)

Cons: We can't link images to the property management invoices as with other imports/recurring that are initiated from Timberline. We've been having trouble lately with import imported invoices from Timberline; get the message no invoices to import. We'd like the ability to send an email once a day to approvers that they have invoices in their queue, rather than at each batch. Is there a solution for adding an extended check stub to checks? We can't do it automatically with the auto attach checks.

Overall: Paperless! I love the ability to look at invoices from my desk.

Pros: So much easier to know where the invoices and pay apps are in the approval system. The software makes everyone accountable for their part in the system. Going paperless has made filing much easier and less time consuming

Cons: It freezes up on us sometimes. Attaching checks seem to mess up a lot making us have to manually attach checks. I wish the comments showed up when you printed the invoice so you had them without going to the next step.

Overall: Lessened my work load and made it easier and less expensive to maintain our invoices and pay apps.

Pros: Timberscan has enabled us to almost double our revenue without adding more overhead for A/P processing. One added benefit that is not immediately apparent is the time saved on the backend by being able to quickly look up invoices using a variety of filters. It also seamlessly integrates with Sage 300CRE.

Cons: Support can be hit or miss depending upon the issue. Updates are not pushed out - you have to ask about updates before they are sent to you. Capture technology can be flaky at times.

Pros: Paperless.

Paperless approval. Digital approval records. Paperless check copies. Paperless job cost inquiries. No need to retain boxes of hard copies for years on end.

Cons: Data entry and software installs/upgrades. We've had problems with quirkiness regarding commitments. Software installs and upgrades require installation from outside our office. This happens often enough to be a nuisance but not often enough to dissuade others from purchasing.

Overall: Paperless processing and accurate approvals.

Daily usage with imports and posting. Works well with other programs

Cons: Supporting documents screen does not retain vendor information like Invoice screen. I have to enter several packing slips for 1 invoice and this would be beneficial.

Overall: eliminates the manual process of matching invoices and is quicker to locate invoices with packing slips. Can search by invoice or packing slip information. We don't have to maintain paper filing saving space and time.

Pros: Storing of documents that are easy to find in the future and can be approved by all employees necessary before going to its "resting place".

Cons: The OCR could use some improvement, sometimes a template works great for most properties but that same template will stop working with others. I would also like to see AIM have the ability to move fields in document setup, arranging rather than deleting would be nice.

Overall: Less paper, greater accountability, and better filing systems.

Pros: One of the best features of this program is the tracking information for invoices. You always know where the invoices are in the approval flow. Who has it and who is holding up the approval system.

Cons: Routing set up is a little cumbersome and not easy to change to another person to approve once it is set up. You can do it but if you don't do it in the correct order it can mess things up.

Overall: Ease of finding old invoices for audit purposes. Ease of routing invoices.

Pros: I like the transparency that the system provides. I am able to see exactly the location of a specific invoice and how long it has been there.

Cons: Needs better reporting. Certain reports I would love to have but are not available. I would like a report of when invoices are on hold. I would like email notifications of the list of invoices in a approver's queue including the date of the oldest acquired invoice so their superior can address.

Overall: Transparency

Pros: Each invoice can be viewed by a number of people so you know by the time it is ready to be exported that the invoice is good to go. You can email a copy of the invoice to other people if they are not in the line up for viewing and you need further discussion.

Cons: Can't really think of any cons, the product has the functionality that we need. Perhaps deleted invoices could be easier to view.

Overall: Keeps our invoice review process going smoothly

Pros: The invoices attach to the file in Sage AP so we have a permanent record of the invoice and check. It's easy to enter invoices and look up vendors and cost codes with the 'list' button.

Cons: I can't run reports telling me who has the invoices. This has never worked on our system. Also, I wish there was some way the system could mark the copies of the checks that have been voided but are attached to the record in Sage AP.

Cons: On some of the screens, you have to move the mouse to the first block, instead of it automatically going there.

Overall: Not being able to go to the files to look things up. It's easier to use for everyone involved. There is a paper trail for approvals.

Cons: I frequently hear that people have difficulty with the speed of the program when accessing it remotely. From an admin point of view, changing the routing and routing rules is complex. I have yet to be able to train anyone to understand how the routing works.

Cons: I think the customer service is amazing but if there is an issue it sometimes take a little while for someone to get back to you.

Overall: When I started my job, my company use to manually copy all the invoices for each job and scan them together in order to bill out. Now we just run the report for each job and pull all the invoices at the same time. Something that use to take a day, now only takes a few hours at most.

Pros: The approval process speeds up the entire AP process plus there is never any lost or misplaced invoices!

Pros: It is very user friendly. It helps to streamline the invoicing and approval process. Send helpful reminder to approvers so invoices get processed quickly. Add-on features such as AIM and Core offer other features that help a company be efficient. It is a good value for the money and the support is very helpful. They really care about the customer.

Cons: Not much bad to say. Like any software there were always a few things you wish it could do. And if you find one of those you can submit an enhancement request and the Timberscan team may add the functionality for you.

Pros: This was so easy to learn and easy to understand. Made it possible to really keep a track on the invoices that were into our company and helped us process faster. Also, enabled us to save so much room due to the elimination of paper storage.

Cons: I have no complaints or criticisms of the software. If any little thing I could pick at would be a little hiccup with editing/adjusting dates on the invoices.

Overall: Time Saving, space saving, ease of research of bills and payments, and great improvement in the turnaround time of invoice processing
