Perceptive Software, Inc., announced that The Norwood Company, one of the largest construction managers in the Mid-Atlantic region, selected ImageNow® document imaging, management and workflow solution to streamline accounts payable processes. With annual revenue consistently above $100 million, Norwood specializes in the construction of large warehouse and distribution centers, light manufacturing facilities, office buildings and healthcare facilities.
Norwood, listed in Engineering News Record's (ENR) Top 400 National Contractors list, is deploying ImageNow in the AP department and construction operations at company headquarters in West Chester, Pa., and at offices in Allentown, Pa., and Cherry Hill, N.J. This enterprise-wide implementation will enable employees to access and share invoices instantly across departments and facilities.
ImageNow's patented technology makes it possible for the company to incorporate document imaging into existing processes quickly and cost-effectively, a value proposition that met the approval of Herb Brownett, senior vice president of The Norwood Company.
"Perceptive Software proved that ImageNow works as advertised during the first demo," said Brownett, who also is immediate past national chair of CFMA (Construction Financial Management Association). "In just a few hours, they set up the solution on our system with our equipment using one of our invoices. That impressed us."
With a remarkable customer base that includes large real estate investment trusts, Fortune 500 corporations, privately held development companies and other small-to-midsized companies, Norwood relied heavily on existing ImageNow customers for guidance when making a decision.
"After looking at the ImageNow customer list and seeing all of the big names, I wanted to make sure that our company would get the attention we need," said Brownett. "I received great comfort from existing Perceptive Software customers who validated that we would be given strong customer service."
Before selecting ImageNow, Norwood experimented with document imaging — a pursuit that convinced the company to make an investment in a comprehensive solution.
"We knew exactly what we wanted and clearly see the benefits of this technology," said Brownett. "There is a lot of paper in our industry, and the paper tends to be far-flung from job sites to satellite offices. Imaging and workflow for AP processing is the single greatest application of technology for the construction industry."
