Paperless Automation and ERP Integration Create a Competitive and Cost Savings Advantage for the Franchise Industry


Email | Print

There’s no question that technology can be a competitive and cost savings advantage…if it’s the right technology for your business. This is especially true for the franchise industry. As the economy bounces back, franchises are looking for ways to stay competitive and streamline overall operations. We’re finding many franchises today still run on decentralized and disconnected environments. Because franchises have multiple locations and entities to manage, they struggle with invoice management as each location receives their own invoices and are individually paying, entering the information manually or sending it via fax, email, snail mail, or a combination of all three. This disconnected workflow doesn’t show an accurate or real-time financial picture of the overall franchise and puts a company at high risk.

Integration proves to be a huge benefit for our clients, and The TM Group is excited to be working with a paperless solution that integrates seamlessly with Microsoft Dynamics GP, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, and Microsoft Dynamics SL. MetaViewer Paperless ERP for Microsoft Dynamics can offer franchises automation they never thought possible, eliminating manual processes and connecting the once disconnected accounting workflow. Without the need for document storage, filing, and management, franchises can realize a number of time savings benefits:

  • Automated Accounts Payable. With electronic copies of invoices, franchises can send invoices in just 5 days that once took 30 days to get out. This streamline process rapidly increases ROI and cash flow.
  • Full Workflow Capabilities. Workflow available in MetaViewer helps franchises save time with approvals and produce real-time, accurate accounting records.
  • Advanced Scanning and Email Capture. Franchises can centralize payment processes, eliminate data entry and shipping costs, increase payment time, and obtain real-time reporting by just managing their documents electronically.
  • Effective Human Resource Management. Franchises manage a high number of employees at multiple locations and turnover is often high. By managing HR documentation with MetaViewer, corporate locations can easily find and retrieve important employee information at any time instead of spending hours searching for the right documents.

Metafile has been providing scanning, document management and workflow for financial automation solutions in the wholesale/distribution and retail industries for more than 30 years. More than 15,000 financial professionals worldwide efficiently process paperless transactions with the MetaViewer Paperless AP, Paperless AR and Paperless HR solutions. We here at The TM Group are proud to announce this add-on solution as part of our offering.
