Perceptive Software, creator of process and content management products and solutions, announced recently that Siemens, a Fortune 50 company, has selected Perceptive Intelligent Capture, powered by Brainware for the automation of accounts payable operations within the company’s European Shared Services Center in Germany.

The customer will implement Perceptive’s intelligent data capture platform for the processing of more than 1.5 million invoices annually, with the possibility of expanding these capabilities to other document-driven routines throughout the organization.
