Rayloc gains flexibility and document processing efficiency
A division of Genuine Parts Company, Rayloc is a leading re-manufacturer of automotive parts and supplier to Napa Auto Parts. The Atlanta-based company manufactures and distributes a wide range of auto parts such as starters, alternators and brake shoes at facilities in Kentucky, Utah, Tennessee and Maryland.
When Rayloc migrated to Microsoft Dynamics AX for its Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, their existing electronic document solution was limited. It was not only tied exclusively to specific printers, but a lack of XML-based functionality limited broader use of electronic documents. The company needed a document solution capable of seamlessly integrating with Microsoft Dynamic AX and providing document output capabilities for business documents like purchase orders and accounts payable checks.
Bottomline Document Output Management Solution
After conducting a survey of document process automation solutions, Rayloc quickly identified Bottomline Technologies’ Create!form for Microsoft Dynamics AX as the ideal solution to meet its needs. The solution seamlessly integrates with industry-leading ERP systems, including Microsoft Dynamics AX. The Create!form product suite also enables Rayloc to extend its ERP investment with advanced output formatting capabilities that replace paper-based documents with more efficient and cost-effective electronic document processes.
The solution’s ease of use enables fast, cost-effective document composition. Using standard ERP output, customized electronic documents can be delivered across multiple channels such as fax, email, print or the Web via automated routing logic. These new capabilities create opportunities for streamlining other core processes at Rayloc, including Positive Pay.
Bottomline’s document output management solution provided immediate benefits. Create!form’s inherent flexibility allowed Rayloc to become printer agnostic, eliminating its reliance on a single print vendor. And the easy-to-use solution has paved the way for faster, more cost-effective composition of critical transactional documents. Rayloc has expanded the types of documents composed and delivered via the Create!form suite to include invoices, financial statements, packing slips and export documents.
In the Customer’s Words
“The migration to Microsoft Dynamics AX provided the perfect opportunity to upgrade our document output capabilities—and Bottomline offered the perfect solution.”
