Ray Parsons, Founder and CEO

Ray Parsons is responsible for leading Transcepta's company strategy. He has led technology organizations for over 20 years including successfully building and selling a software company (Unisolve) to Microsoft. After selling Unisolve in 2001, Ray became the General Manager for Microsoft's worldwide Supply Chain Management initiative. Ray also served as the General Manager for the Microsoft Business Network, a research effort targeted at identifying ways that companies could simplify their electronic document exchange. Studies have shown that even the most automated Accounts Payable departments do not achieve maximum productivity if they are processing paper.

Imagine a hypothetical corporation, Johnson Company, which uses a scanning and OCR solution to process supplier invoices that are sent and received exclusively in paper. Johnson Company has invested in a leading A/P Automation system that automates routing, workflow, and approvals. Johnson Company will have better productivity than other firms in its industry because of its A/P automation investment.  However, if Johnson Company converts enough of its suppliers so that 50% of the invoices are sent and received electronically, Johnson Company's Accounts Payable department will increase productivity by nearly three times.

The key learning? Paper is the root of lower productivity! Companies must convert suppliers to send invoices electronically if they want to be productive. Learn how Transcepta helps you do it.
