This issue of our e-Newsletter includes a fascinating and timely reminder from EASY Software's Howard Frear that, while we within our industry tend to assume that everybody 'gets' DM these days, in fact there is still a lot of work to be done. Yes, most organisations see the benefits of 'quick-win' applications such as invoice automation, but the fact is that there are still vast areas of business process that could be automated - relatively quickly and easily, and with significant postiive impact for user organisations - but they simply aren't. As Howard notes: "There are a lot of Finance teams that have really 'got' DM, giving us perhaps a bit of a false impression that the rest of the company has. But here's the problem: finance is great at using technologies like DM, EDI and even email to distribute invoices, as well increased use of OCR. But the rest of the business isn't keeping up. The paper may get into to the company more quickly, it may get turned into electrons quickly (or even arrive in that state), but there's a big lag here when it gets out of Finance."

His argument is that DM as a concept needs to be on everyone's 'must have' list as opposed to, as at present, a 'nice to have': unless vendors start working with customers on the need to get the efficiency beyond the Finance office to the rest of the office, making the payment cycle a much slicker process and closing out the situation where invoices can spend three quarters of their time in a company doing nothing, then as Frear concludes, "we don't have time to relax". Do you agree?

And lastly just a quick reminder that nominations close on July 17th for this year's DM Awards. Do please head over to the Awards website (www.dmawards.com) - you don't have to nominate in every category, of course, just those you are interested in. Let's make this year the biggest and best ever!
