Accounts Payable Document Management
How to reduce paper and manual invoices in your Accounts Payable process.

A custom-built secure Vendor Portal can be integrated with your accounting software or any ERP system. Accounts payable outsourcing boosts approval times and efficiencies while significantly cutting your internal costs.
What Are Your Biggest Challenges?
1. Efficiency: Manual processes are slow and error prone which result in incorrect payments, duplicate payments, increased exceptions handling and overall higher costs.
2. Visibility: Accounts payable has little or no control over incoming invoices. Your finance team needs better visibility and real-time data.
3. Approval Times: Invoice approvals and payments are time consuming often resulting in missed early payment discounts and unhappy vendors.
4. Lost Time: Managing incoming invoices and vendor inquiries often overwork and overwhelm your accounts payable department. Many hours are spent each day tracking down invoice approvals from internal departments and branches.
5. Access: Too much paper and multiple manual filing systems are inefficient which gives little control over your information. Records retention boxes and off-site storage is expensive and hard to access.
