Accounts Payable Automation

Automate your accounts payable processes

For accounting departments, paper-based, manual invoice processing is an age-old problem that poses a range of operational and strategic challenges.

The challenges

Inefficiency

54% of businesses said invoices were being sent to the wrong place**, and 28% said that “too much data entry” was one of their top challenges.*

Siloed data

36% of technology leaders say that employees are less efficient due to siloed data management practices.****

Excessive processing costs

The average cost of processing a single invoice manually is £8-£15. In light of this, 63% see reducing processing costs as a top priority.***

Limited visibility

53% of accounts payable teams can’t provide answers to supplier queries about invoices due to a lack of visibility, meaning they need to call back with more information.**

Too much paper

The biggest bugbear for 38% of accounts payable departments is “too many paper documents”.*

Incompatability with remote working

74% of professionals expect remote work to become the standard in the future.*****

The solution.

The case for automation in accounts payable departments is clear. Employees can spend less time on cumbersome data entry tasks, freeing them up to work on more meaningful projects.

Managers can increase their value to the business by streamlining processes, improving cash flow projections and capitalising on incentives.

At the C-suite level, CFOs get peace of mind knowing the accounts payable function is providing consistent strategic value to the organisation.
