    I want to gauge the response from users of Timberscan.

    We have three FTE's (full time equivalent staff) entering accounts payable for a $60 MM contractor.
    Part GC based, part service based, with 600 + jobs per year.

    After implementation and the learning curve, I believe we can safely reduce that number spend on entering payables to 2 FTE's with better accuracy.

    I want to see the reaction to that statement from users.

    thank you,
    Joe Harper

    We implemented Timberscan last October.  We have 2 project accountants and 1 staff handling GL, PR and other functions.  Recently we added two part-time interns that each function like "accounting administrators", handling much of the clerical duties (scanning, acquiring, clean up old files, etc.).  Our revenues are between $100m and $125m.  We are getting by with the number of staff we have.  My wish item for 2019 is to add another project accountant.

    My opinion is that you may find yourself reducing the operating level of one employee, but I doubt you will find yourself needing less bodies.  Having the extra capacity is always helpful when a growth period hits.

    That was our experience.  We dropped from four full time AP team members to two and one-half.  And we gained greater control over our unapproved invoices.
