Accounts Payable Automation (AP Automation) is a process which streamlines and automates accounts payable processes, removing manual tasks and providing better visibility and control over important financial information.

AP automation is a key facet of an e-invoicing solution whereby you can enable all your suppliers (not just the largest ones) to send you electronic invoices. Invoices can be sent in one of three ways – through a PDF attachment in an email, via EDI or through the TrueCommerce portal.  By inputting this data directly into your ERP, you can drastically reduce the manpower required to receive, approve and release supplier invoices and payments.

Large businesses can receive thousands of invoices a day and this number only increases with the size of the company. Whilst growth is positive you need the infrastructure in place to accommodate for the added strain this can bring.

With AP Automation and e-invoicing you can:

    • Reduce invoicing errors
    • Streamline invoice to pay cycles 
    • Avoid paying fraudulent invoices 
    • Free up accounts teams’ time previously invested into sifting through an array of invoices 
    • Remove paper from your business 
    • Increase productivity by eliminating manual processes.
