  3. Eliminating human intervention via touchless invoice processing

  4. Processing multi-nation invoices in 120+ languages

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry’s only peer-recognise awards program.

SIIA members then vote on the finalist products, and the scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners.
