Metafile Plans Expansion to U.K. to Offer Paperless Document Management Integrated into Microsoft Dynamics ERP

NEW ORLEANS, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Metafile, a pioneer in the development of paperless document management applications, today announced that it soon will expand into the United Kingdom with solutions targeted to accounts payable, accounts receivable and human resources functions for midsized and enterprise businesses. In unveiling its plans during the Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2013 conference, Metafile noted its intention to partner with half a dozen or more companies in the U.K., creating strategic relationships to provide services to the entire nation.

The U.K. presence will serve as a launch pad for entering other markets within the region. Recently, Metafile established a partnership with London-based Cognitive Channels to initiate its plans in the U.K. and to manage the ongoing partner-selection process.

From its U.S. operations, Metafile has served, more than 3,500 organizations worldwide with paperless document management solutions—including its flagship MetaViewer product—to capture, manage and access data, eliminate repetitive processes and promote efficiency and cost control.

A particular benefit of MetaViewer for European customers is its seamless capability to integrate with Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012, Microsoft Dynamics GP, and Microsoft Dynamics NAV enterprise resource planning technologies, each of which offers a multi-currency solution to support transactions and accounting functions on an international level. Metafile has worked closely with its partners to employ native tools to carry out the AX integration, ensuring that its AP automation functionality has been integrated at precisely the right locations within AX 2012 to enable easy, intuitive access to and use of MetaViewer.

Moreover, since they are not embedded within the Microsoft Dynamics solution, MetaViewer data and reports are available to any authorized users within the organization. Employees do not need to be AX users to view the documents in MetaViewer nor an AX license to do so.

Metafile anticipates marketing MetaViewer, with its highly productive Microsoft Dynamics integration capabilities, through its first three partners in the U.K. by the end of June, 2013. Additional partners will be added shortly thereafter. In the U.S., Australia, and now the U.K., Metafile currently has 57 partners who market or provide recommendations for Metafile products.

"We chose to begin our European expansion in the U.K., because London remains positioned as the focal point for the world's financial activity and, because our products can be marketed most readily in English-speaking countries," said Steve Gregory, Partner Channel Manager. "Our experience in the U.K. will provide a strong understanding of the needs of businesses in Europe, from the standpoint of investment and delivery. With that knowledge, we expect to be prepared to translate MetaViewer to other languages and continuing our expansion worldwide."

MetaViewer enhances Microsoft Dynamics and other leading ERP solutions by adding integrated e-invoicing, workflow, document imaging and dashboard views of all financial processes.  MetaViewer combined with ERP completely automates accounts payable and accounts receivable processes. Metafile has been providing scanning, OCR, document management and workflow for financial automation solutions for more than 25 years.
