Slingshot Extends Workflow Capabilities with “Document Queues”

Slingshot’s “Document Queues” module automates the handling of documents received from multiple sources (e.g., Image, EDI, IDOC, XML or Direct Entry).  Routing rules enforce compliance with company policies and streamline processing steps.  Document throughput is accelerated, data-capture accuracy improved, and processing costs reduced. “Document Queues” is especially appropriate for companies receiving large numbers of document with complex processing streams.

The “Document Queues” module allows documents to be automatically routed through multiple vali-dation, approval, and processing steps.  Routing rules can be set up by Entity and Document Type.  Rules can pertain to externally interfaced “staged” documents as well as production documents en-tered directly into Slingshot.  Each step can ‘pass’ causing the document to proceed to the next step, or ‘fail’ causing the document to route to a new Queue for review, data maintenance, or archival.

Pedigree Tracking Facility Added to eStock

Slingshot’s inventory management module now records and distributes drug pedigree information in compliance with the Drug Supply Chain Security Acts (DSCSA).  A Transaction statement with the seven required DSCSA assertions and Transaction history Information documenting changes in ownership is captured for each lot received.  The review and acceptance of pedigree information is required before finalizing a receipt. 
For outbound shipments, a Transaction Statement is “e-signed” as part of the shipment confirmation process.  This statement and associated transaction histories are forwarded with the shipping documentation (electronic and/or paper). 

eStock-Pharma Added to ERP Suite

Slingshot is releasing a pharmaceutical inventory control module to meet the needs of laboratories, and manufacturing organizations.  This new application incorporates the features formerly offered as “Pharma Extensions” to Slingshot’s Inventory application and adds a number of new features specific to the pharmaceutical industry.

1.    DSCSA Pedigree Tracking
2.    Dual Lot# Tracking (internal and manufacturer)

Slingshot Adds “Intelligent OCR” to Invoice Intake

Facilities are shortening the time required to record supplier invoices.  The accuracy of the OCR process varies widely.  Each supplier has its own terminology and document layout making the process especially challenging.  Slingshot’s Intelligent OCR process “learns” the supplier’s layout improving accuracy as invoices are processed.  If the layout changes, “Intelligent OCR” automatically detects the change and adjusts its rules for the supplier.

Slingshot has added “Intelligent OCR” to its invoice capture and matching facilities.  These facilities are available in release G2-12 of Slingshot’s purchasing and accounts payable applications scheduled for release this summer.  For more information contact Slingshot sales representative at sales@slingshotsoftware.com.
