Accounts Payable Automation and Outsourcing
Automation will save you time and money.
Have your accounts payable processes become cumbersome and expensive? Depending on how manual your current processes are you could be spending anywhere from $15 to $35 to process each invoice. If cutting costs within your accounts payable department is on your to-do list, consider an outsourcing solution.
We take care of receiving and digitizing your invoices on a daily basis as well as validating and extracting the data for uploading into your ERP or accounting system. You will have access to key metrics and 100% visibility at every step. We can even archive documents for you and help you get your vendors on board using our Vendor Portal.
Let us help you get some of that time and money back through accounts payable automation.
Problem: Manual processes are slow and prone to errors resulting in incorrect or duplicate payments, increased exceptions and costs.
Solution: Having invoices centralized, validated and uploaded directly to your ERP or accounting system ensures correct information for accurate and timely payments.
Be More Efficient
Problem: Managing incoming invoices, exceptions and vendors will often overwork and overwhelm your accounts payable department. Many hours are spent each day tracking down invoice approval statuses from internal departments or branch offices.
Solution: Accounts Payable Automation frees staff from mail handling, data entry and exception processing, allowing your employees to focus on more key activities. Your cost per invoice processing goes down and your efficiency goes up.
Decrease Cycle Times
Problem: Invoice approvals and payments take too long, resulting in missed early payment discounts and unhappy vendors.
Solution: Automation significantly decreases processing times. All data capture and validation is provided as part of a daily processing service. You receive complete and correct invoice data necessary to capture early payment discounts and eliminate late payment fees while improving vendor relationships.
Problem: The accounts payable process and staff have little or no control over incoming invoices; finance needs better visibility and real-time data for outstanding costs.
Solution: True accountability and real-time reporting provides 100% visibility at each step of the process. No more gaps or black holes within the system. Invoice automation allows you immediate accessibility to track and manage all of your invoices in one central location.
