Streamlining the AP Process with Automated Invoice Management Software

Manual invoice processing is fraught with issues. Invoices can be lost, approval requests can be forgotten, vendors can get paid twice, or not at all. It’s a time -consuming and expensive process. According to benchmarking company APQC, top-performing companies spend an average of $4.98 to process each invoice, compared to $12.44 for bottom-performing companies. Much of this additional cost comes from the added amount of manual intervention required, as labor represents 62 percent of invoice
processing costs.

Streamlining the invoice approval process will strengthen an organization’s finances by introducing efficiencies. AP teams can focus on more strategic tasks, eliminating the likelihood of late payment penalties and allowing an organization to take advantage of early payments discounts. It can also help maintain the financial health of its vendors by making faster payments.

This white paper analyzes why the traditional invoice approval process is broken, and the steps that can be taken to improve and streamline an organization’s AP processes.

It's easy to see how invoice management can free AP resources to concentrate on more value-added projects and initiatives.
