WS Packaging Gives PaperSavePro™ Its Seal of Approval

    WS Packaging is top-notch when it comes to manufacturing pressure-sensi­tive labels for major national packaged food and beverage companies. But its accounting folks found themselves stuck under piles of paperwork just as their corporate office was about to move into a temporary location. “We really were running out of space, not only for people, but for files,” explains Cathy Schumer, the company’s corporate controller.

    At first she had concerns regarding whether going paperless would pass muster with accountants, auditors, and the Internal Revenue Service; she now antici­pates that it will be a great timesaver for her staff and a more convenient way to get information disseminated. Also the vast majority of WS Packaging’s manufac­turing facilities use Microsoft Dynamics®, so she needed something that would integrate seamlessly. PaperSavePro was the perfect solution.

    Schumer found the software at a conference in March and employed it in July, right after her company’s next fiscal year began. “It fit with our year end,” she says. “It was easy to implement. We actually got it up and running very quickly.” PaperSavePro also saved the company from excessive spending: “We had also explored some very high-end software for workflow management and they were so darn expensive. We figured out the return [on PaperSavePro] was going to be about a year.”

    WS Packaging employees discovered they could use PaperSavePro to store credit applications, scan in remitted checks and attach them to transactions, as­sist with collections, promptly deal with vendor queries, and quickly investigate any unusual transactions. Schumer also adds that it makes buyouts go more smoothly; when WS Packaging acquires a company it can takes control of its cash immediately through Microsoft Dynamics GP, scan everything in, and can start paying vendors immediately. “We’re able to quickly integrate their accounting into ours as a result of PaperSavePro,” she explains.

    Schumer admits accounts payable folks were apprehensive at first, but: “Once we got things rolling they were like, okay, this is really cool! It’s really easy to find things. Now they’re going gangbusters with it. They love it.”

    PaperSavePro is a document management and electronic workflow solution that has earned the Certified for Microsoft Dynamics designation, which identifies solutions that have been tested and proven to meet Microsoft's highest standards for partner solutions.  PaperSavePro seamlessly integrates to Microsoft Dynamics.
