2017 Invoice Workflow Automation Report
Understanding the Use Case and Long-Term Value of an Automated Invoice Management Environment
Accounts Payables (AP) automation is a general term often used to encompass a complex back-office process. For companies with tens of thousands of invoices a year, a large supplier base, and a complicated business structure, an efficient, automated AP state is difficult to imagine, much less attempt. These companies have numerous and complicated requirements
for properly conducting invoice management, and many forego automating AP because they believe they will not find the right solution for their AP needs. This means they also end up leaving millions of dollars’ worth of process improvement-related savings on the table.
Fortunately, there is an AP software available that is flexible and powerful enough to meet the needs of even the most complicated invoice management lifecycles. Invoice workflow automation (IWA) software is built to digitally manage an invoice throughout its lifecycle while offering flexibility and visibility to AP departments. PayStream believes that with the proper knowledge of IWA software, as well as the proper automation preparation techniques, any company can achieve efficient AP.
