An inefficient Accounts Payable system can be incredibly detrimental to any organization. Despite the nature of AP as a largely behind-the-scenes process, it’s a critical component of a well-functioning business.
Throughout the last decade, the accounting world has made enormous strides to replace the costly and outdated paper-based processes that have long plagued finance professionals. The value of automating AP goes far beyond simple convenience. Without consistent and efficient invoice processing, your business is likely to be saddled with late fees, penalties, poor audit performance, and strained relationships with your suppliers.
Whether you are just now looking into automation or if you have already dabbled in automation and are ready to explore what a complete “end-to-end” AP system can do for you, you’ll need to be well informed before diving into the rapidly-growing market of process automation.
