Payments Industry Veteran James Thomas Leading the AI Revolution in Finance and Accounting Workflow Automation by Saving Companies Billions
James Thomas, the founder and CEO of Itemize, is helping corporations and FinTechs save billions and increasing their productivity by deploying intelligent automation to capture data from financial documents that would otherwise be done manually.
“At Itemize, our focus is enabling organizations to implement and accelerate business processes using Machine Learning (ML) and AI technologies,” said Thomas. “We’ve seen results showing 97 percent accuracy, 80 percent time-savings freeing up valuable resources and cost savings.”
Itemize specializes in B2B accounting and finance applications, documents, and workflows. Its team and technology are experienced in finance and accounting systems, commercial payments, tax processing, and Accounts Payable. This sector focus puts Itemize ahead of the competition in dealing with financial and accounting documents.
“Itemize is ready on the first day that a customer signs up. Our competitors are only selling tools, not out-the-box-ready solutions. They typically require a lot of time and resources in configuration and training,” said Thomas.
Research shows that 60 percent of Accounts Payable and expense documents in the U.S. are using paper-based, according to CPA Practice Advisor. As a result, companies are wasting money, time, and resources on manually capturing information from receipts, invoices, purchase orders (PO), and other B2B purchase documents.
Itemize continuously builds on its product suite and offers new capabilities to address manual data entry and the loss of critical intelligence challenges and further accelerate finance and accounting digital transformation.

“Accounting and finance leaders seeking to drive digital transformation and reduce invoice processing headaches are benefiting from Itemize every day. Other solutions require time-consuming, custom integration and set-up processes, Itemize users can see immediate ROI with the click of a button,” said James.
Itemize is constantly working towards empowering business operations so finance teams can focus on higher-value activities by liberating them from laborious and costly manual data entry and reconciliation tasks.
It does this by harnessing the power of AI to capture and transform unstructured and semi-structured data in Accounts Payable (AP) documents, such as invoices, receipts, and purchase orders, into rich data sets for financial applications. Itemize reads invoice and PO images, pdfs, emails, and text files in any layout.
Itemize solutions can capture high-value intelligence such as Early Pay Discounts (EPD), VAT, and much more. It also reconciles data from all other financial documents, such as receipts and purchase orders, and alerts accounting personnel to make it a priority for payment.
