Arlington, VA (January 31, 2008) Hawkins Companies, LLC, one of Idaho’s largest manager and developer of commercial real estate, selected NexusPayables to automate their payables process. Hawkins recognized invoice automation as a growing need inside their company. They also showed great initiative in selecting NexusPayables for its robust functionality and unique job costing capabilities for their IRES/MRI general ledger. Another advantage for Hawkins will be the control that NexusPayables provides to the approval process and the ability to track transactions with ease. Further, Hawkins’ processes will also be advanced by NexusPayables’ fully automatic, two-way integration with their IRES/MRI GL system.

“After evaluating our needs and all products available, NexusPayables was the right fit for our company. We were also quite impressed with what other real estate companies, especially those using MRI, were saying about Nexus Systems as a company and about their product. The job costing functionality, including integrated contract, job and cost codes, was a big factor. Budget and actual comparison within NexusPayables will also be most beneficial to our users as well as having our entire year’s worth of invoices in the system through electronic archiving,” said April Bull, Controller at Hawkins Companies, LLC.

“We are pleased to welcome Hawkins Companies as a client and look forward to a prosperous partnership. Like Hawkins, real estate companies everywhere are seeing growing benefits aside from the streamlined AP processes NexusPayables provides. By scanning paper invoices that are filed away and then pulling and automatically matching their invoice data from MRI, NexusPayables eliminates the need for costly storage space in and outside of the office. Along with paperless invoice processing, this helps companies achieve their “Green” initiatives with overall less paper usage,” said Thomas Runyon, Vice President of Sales at Nexus Systems.
