Since its core technology—represented in three business process automation products titled PlanetPress Connect, PReS Connect and CaptureOnTheGo—acts a middleware, Objectif Lune helps organisations benefit from enterprise-wide automation without changing their legacy systems. “By taking a legacy stream and adding digital transformation, communication, and automation technology, we transition companies, who are still doing AR and AP manually, into the digital world. Our technology allows us to capture legacy data in any format, recompose the data for any web or mobile device and/or printer format, and effectively distribute the data in any way the customer sees fit,” explains Colin Casey, the chief product officer at Objectif Lune. For over 25 years, Objectif Lune has optimised the AR processes for clients by reducing paperwork and enhancing the quality of transactional documents—be it a simple invoice or a delivery note. However, the influx of modern web technologies has paved the way for Objectif Lune to reinvent its solutions.
To put it succinctly, the workflow/automation component of the Objectif Lune software suite acts as a traffic cop capable of capturing data from any system under the sun. After capturing the data via a simple print stream, the Objectif Lune technology recomposes the data to fit a client’s preferred choice of device. The automation software is also capable of embedding hyperlinks that a client may want to promote through an AR document.

The impeccable benefits of PReS Connect are best illustrated in a customer success story involving a beverage wholesaler based in Wisconsin. Despite distributing its products to 11 countries and 20 point of sale systems across the States, the wholesaler didn’t own an electronic system to receive requests trickling in from various outlets. Operating with an archaic billing and invoicing process, each outlet had to manually jot down order details with a pad and pen. Therefore, they were swarmed with duplicate orders from different branches and couldn’t approve new orders. Also, they had to manually approve and re-enter the order details into the ERP system. By implementing PReS Connect, Objectif Lune digitised the invoice approval process, and eliminated duplications; every outgoing invoice was recorded and available on both print screen and PDF. Today, every document of the beverage company can be digitally tracked and approved.
A bright future awaits Objectif Lune as the organisation shifts its focus to the supply chain aspect of its business. On that front, Casey’s team has created cloud-based demos that prospective clients can leverage to maximise the visibility of Objectif Lune’s software solutions. “Pre-packaging our demos means we’ve reached more customers with the same resources. Our goal right now is to introduce our technology in a packaged approach,” concludes Casey.
