Gelco and IntelAccount Alliance Strengthens Financial Systems Automation

Alliance Between Minnesota Service Providers Highlights Web-Based Financial Processing

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - August 21, 2007) - Gelco Expense Management and IntelAccount have announced an alliance to help businesses simplify financial processing by automating and Web-enabling transactional, labor-intensive financial processing activities including expense-report and accounts-payable processing.

Gelco is a leader in Services On Demand for global expense management, delivering comprehensive services for expense reporting and streamlining the process of managing expenses, payments, receipt imaging, and auditing. IntelAccount provides small- to medium-sized businesses with automated, Web-based invoice- and expense-report processing, electronic payment services, Web-based purchase order management, and digital document storage and retrieval services.

Both Gelco and IntelAccount deliver automated financial processes to help organizations improve productivity and reduce operating costs. IntelAccount's Web-based solutions allow their clients to create and route purchase orders electronically, review and approve invoices online and find digital documents in seconds. They reduce the amount of paper a company uses and the amount of time employees spend handling paper and performing data entry tasks, lowering processing costs up to 70 percent. In addition to Gelco's Web-based, on-demand expense-reporting and expense-management services, Gelco provides expense receipt-imaging solutions. One consumer goods manufacturer reduced receipt storage by 500 boxes per year with Gelco's services.

"Accounts payable and expense report processing represent significant hidden costs for every organization that drain resources and profitability. Gelco and IntelAccount share a common goal to help clients reduce the time and money spent on financial processes and move to paperless systems," said David Crane, CEO, IntelAccount. "Our services benefit innovative companies seeking improved operations to support growth and obtain a competitive edge inexpensively through financial process automation. They also support the environment by taking advantage of the benefits of a paperless process."

"Businesses seeking to do more with less and reduce the time it takes to manage financial processes need to address a number of areas -- from accounts payable and receivable to employee expense reporting and payments," said Brian Provost, chief operating officer, Gelco Expense Management. "Our alliance with IntelAccount is an example of how Gelco is helping organizations look to a number of best-in-class providers with the expertise to streamline these processes and continue to grow and improve other areas of their businesses."
