Yesterday, in our Tech Tuesdays roundup, we reported on Acco Brands Europe picking up an invoice processing and automation solution to help improve STP in the purchase-to-pay cycle. But with any such implementation, my first question is always "what about the integration?"

It is all well and good to say that deployment was web-based or the implementation and testing phase took x-number of weeks or months, but that gives no indication of the time and effort involved in not only setting up and configuring the system, but also, and more importantly, preparing the connections between that system and all the various internal and external systems that will touch on the functioning of that solution.
