Dear Deeside College,

1. I would like some information about the college’s current Accounts Payable processes, please indicate:
_where the Accounts Payable team is currently based and if centralised?
_ which finance system/accounting software the finance team uses to process supplier invoices?
_ how many suppliers do you have?
_ number of staff manually processing the invoices?
_ volume of paper and electronic invoices processed per annum?
_ are paper invoices scanned at all? Before or after payment?
_ any plans to look at invoice automation/ OCR scanning in the next 6 months to a year?
_ If OCR/ Invoice automation systems already in place please indicate name of supplier

2. And finally, please let me know how many enrolment forms you receive per annum?
_Do you receive them by post, fax, email or online?
_Are they manually processed by a team of people (i.e. is the forms data manually keyed in into a database)?

I look forward to a reply by email.

Yours faithfully,

Stephanie Mottershead
