February 13, 2019

LYON, France & MIDDLETON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 13, 2019--Esker, a worldwide leader in AI-driven document process automation solutions and pioneer in cloud computing, announced today that Fuji Xerox, a leading solutions provider in document services and communications, will market Esker’s cloud-based Accounts Payable automation solution as part of Fuji Xerox’s offering to optimize accounts payable (AP) management processes in Japan, and soon in Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Esker’s automation solution allows businesses to eliminate the manual pains of traditional invoice processing to bring new levels of efficiency to AP. Fuji Xerox customers will benefit from the numerous advantages of AP automation, including: reduced operational costs, accelerated payment cycle times, improved supplier satisfaction, increased early payment discounts, and enhanced reporting and analytics.

As part of the agreement, the solution will be marketed by Fuji Xerox along with consultation, implementation and support provided by Fuji Xerox.

“Fuji Xerox is thrilled to partner with leading process automation provider Esker,” said Toshiharu Yoneyama, corporate vice president and executive general manager, Smart Work Innovation Business Group, Fuji Xerox Co., Ltd. “Combining Esker’s innovation and Fuji Xerox’s expertise in document solutions will enable us to provide our customers with an AP experience like never before.”
