Accounts Payable Automation

Unlocking the Secrets of the AP Automation Top Performers

A Checklist for Developing a Future-Proof AP Organization

What is Accounts Payable Automation?

It’s easy to forget that an Invoice is simply a request for payment from a supplier, and therefore it’s the job of AP Automation software to make this simple, fast and more efficient for both the Supplier and the Accounts Payable team. By using the suppliers’ desire to be paid, top performing organizations ensure that the Invoice-to-Pay journey is seamless and touchless.

Enable Your Suppliers to Automate

All Suppliers, from the poolman to the global providers have embraced electronic invoicing. This could be simply a PDF invoice sent as an email attachment, or it could be full blown electronic data interchange (EDI) as an XML. However, you will still get some good old paper invoices, and that’s why the Invoice Hub handles everything from paper to PDF and even EDI. To be an Accounts Payable Top Performer, that is not enough, you also need to offer suppliers self-validation, self-matching and payment data removing the onboarding barriers and cutting inquiries down by over 50%.
