Industry outlook

Esker's DPA software operates across five areas: document delivery, accounts payable, accounts receivable, procurement and sales order processing. Competitors are different for each business process and consist of business process outsourcers and specialist DPA software companies. Customers move to using DPA software to reduce paper-related costs and errors in processing, to speed up the cash conversion cycle, to improve process visibility within the enterprise and to improve customer service.
