Multi-page invoices: Overview

You can use the same Scan job for all your multi-page invoices, both those with and without appendices.

Interpret can decide whether an invoice has appendices or not, by comparing the appearances of the first page and the last page.

Multi-page invoices without appendices

By default, Interpret only interprets single item fields on the first page and the last page of the invoice; however, you can use Optimize to optimize fields on any page.

Kofax ReadSoft Invoices interprets line item fields on all the front pages.

Multi-page invoices with appendices

For a multi-page invoice with appendices, only the first page of the invoice is interpreted. Interpret treats all the rest of the pages as appendix pages.

In Verify, the operator can select the actual last invoice page. Kofax ReadSoft Invoices can then interpret fields on all the invoice pages with the same result as described above in Multi-page invoices without appendices.

To process multi-page invoices

  1. In the invoice profile, you specify whether each single item field profile can occur on the first page, the last page, or either first or last page.
  2. In the Scan job description, you specify that at least one invoice has multiple pages.
  3. When preparing the invoices to be scanned, you have to insert a blank sheet of paper between all invoices or use barcode separation.

    Instead of scanning the invoices, you can import multi-page invoices in multi-image files.

    The Verify operator can view all the invoice and appendix pages.

    The operator can mark any front page as the last invoice page. Verify then interprets the invoice pages.

    If a field occurs on a page from which Kofax ReadSoft Invoices does not capture data, the Verify operator can type the value while verifying the invoice.

    When you transfer the invoices, you can get all the pages of a multi-page invoice in one file.
