How Continia Document Management make a difference to Dynamics 365 Business Central  

Automated import, electronic capture and processing of documents
Document Capture for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is a certified add-on-module enabling you to electronically process your company’s incoming documents in an automated workflow. Documents can be registered, captured, processed and archived electronically by scanning physical documents, importing PDF-files or emails.

  • Document Capture is built inside Microsoft Dynamics Business Central. By using templates and analysing documents with optical character recognition (OCR), data from captured documents can be extracted from the document and further processed in Microsoft Dynamics Business Central.

  • This enables you to manage standard purchasing processes in Microsoft Dynamics Business Central (receipt of documents, capturing data, converting to purchase invoices) in accounts payables and the purchasing department with minimal manual effort. At the same time you can access the original electronic document with just a simple click.

Document Capture easily integrates in the existing document approval functionality in Microsoft Dynamics Business Central and adds a few additional functions and options to these. The solution enables your employees to access and approve invoices electronically without having access to the original physical document. There is a full audit trail about who approved an invoice and when.

Create a Purchase Order

Once your purchase requisition is approved, you create a purchase order. Ensuring all the details are correct, you send it off to the vendor for confirmation.

Receive Your Order

Once the order is received in your warehouse, your invoice is imported into Business Central. Document Capture's intelligent OCR captures and extracts the data, removing the need for manual data entry.

Match Your Invoice

Document Capture registers your invoice, which is reconciled with automatic three-way matching. Your invoice is compared and matched with the corresponding purchase order and receipt.


Approve Your Invoice

Your invoice is sent to the appropriate workflow for approval by one or more approvers. It's then posted before you pay your vendor.

Approve Your Payment

Payment Management allows you to create a payment suggestion in your Payment Journal once your invoice is processed. Your payment line information and payment details are validated, and the payment is sent for approval.
