Check Processing SmartLink 

Automates check payment posting and bank deposit preparation using the latest check processing technologies.  

Accounts Payable SmartLink

With ImageDirector Accounts Payable SmartLink, paper filing of purchase orders, vendor invoices, receiving orders, packing slips and vendor checks is a thing of the past.  And you don’t even have to do any indexing during scanning! 

Accounts Payable Workflow 

Our Accounts Payable Workflow Solution allows for the controlled distribution of documents and information to workers in your cooperative that are involved in the requisition and vendor invoice approval processes.  It replaces the movement of paper with electronic images and is especially beneficial to coops with multiple district offices and receiving warehouses.  

Member Customer Bill PDF SmartLink
The “View Bill” display presents your users with a PDF view of their bill that is identical to the bill the member receives.

Executive Suite FTS (Full Text Search) 

Many cooperatives have refrained from scanning board minutes, contracts, and documents that are difficult to index because of multiple subjects covered in one document.  To resolve this dilemma Comsquared has developed the Executive Suite FTS software system! Find any subject matter easy and fast with the full text look up feature!

 

Service Order IntelliCapture™ Module

With the IntelliCapture Module, the scanning software reads and records the member- sep number of each service order for you.  All you have to do is verify the results.  And the reading process takes way less time than scanning!

Mobile Service Order Capture SmartLink

When your cooperative implements the Mobile Service Order process, completed service orders generated from the Mobile Service Order program are automatically sent to the ImageDirector server and stored in the appropriate member’s electronic file folder.  

SmartLink for e-Forms

ImageDirector will automatically determine the e-form type, and file the form in the appropriate member’s electronic file folder; including the form type designation and date the form was sent.  The SmartLink for e-Forms is another step in reducing paper storage for your cooperative and provides a secure, permanent storage solution for document retention.  

DataSeeker & Match/Merge

Reduce or eliminate data entry for imaging with “Match/Merge" or “Data Seeker” interfaces, automatic bar code indexing, Zone OCR indexing, and ODBC query.

Work Order SmartLink 

Wish there was a way to instantly review all documents for a particular job?  Without the labor of having to file all that paper?  ImageDirector Work Order SmartLink does it for you!
