The Definitive Guide to Accounts Payable Automation

Guide to AP Automation

Accounts payable is often undervalued as playing a strategic role in the organization. Corcentric now offers the “Definitive Guide to Accounts Payable Automation” showing how automation can unlock the value of accounts payable

In a highly competitive, ever-expanding global market, CFOs are charged with improving performance and efficiencies throughout the organization. Paper and manual processes stand in the way of achieving that goal and nowhere is that more a fact than in the finance functions that make up the purchase-to-pay cycle. From purchase order to invoice to receipt of goods to the actual payment, the chance for errors due to multiple pieces of paper which can be lost or misplaced; manual keying which can result in keying mistakes; and a total lack of visibility into an invoice status that prevents real-time knowledge.

Faster processing, lower costs, more on-time payments

Automating the accounts payable workflow approval process not only avoids those errors mentioned above that are inherent in paper-based processes, it also reduces costs, enables 24/7 visibility, and provides valuable data and analytics for better decision making. In fact, implementing an AP automation solution can optimize your invoice flow and help your department to:

  • Process invoices up to 70% faster
  • Reduce invoice processing costs up to 80%
  • Realize the value of e-invoicing
  • Enable each FTE to process 6,000-8,000 invoice per month
  • Pay suppliers on time with 100% disbursement, either electronically or through other methods
