FAQ: What You Need to Know!
What is Document Management?

What is AP Automation?
Most organizations today rely on a paper-intensive, manual receipt and approval accounts payable (AP) process. Most of the AP staff spends its time dedicated to opening mail, obtaining approvals, managing vendors, tracking spending and manual data entry. However, thanks to technology, that no longer has to be the case.
Accounts Payable Automation allows for all those tasks to be accomplished quickly, completely and best of all, automatically. Benefits that accompany AP Automation include:
Improved cash flow cycle management
Since automation removes many of the delays associated with getting data into your financial systems for approval, at the end of the month, you accrue fewer payables.
Increased invoice data accuracy
Inaccurate invoice data results in time spent investigating the error, correcting it and possibly reprocessing a payment. Automation delivers the most accurate data possible.
Capitalization on early pay discounts
An accounts payable process that moves faster allows for more early-pay discounts.
Reduced manual data entry costs
Automated data capture gets rid of 75% of data entry labor costs. When manual data entry is nearly eliminated, there are dramatic improvements in speed and effectiveness. This benefit also yields the biggest return on investment.
