Accounts Payable (AP) automation software is one of the best ways to lower processing costs in the back-office, as well as improve staff productivity and a company’s bottom line. However, there are a couple of things that can make or break the success of an automation initiative, like ensuring proper implementation and widespread adoption of the solution in order to gain a strong return on investment (ROI). Research shows that a fear of no ROI from technology adoption causes many organizations to steer clear of automation altogether. In fact, PayStream has found that almost 50 percent of organizations continue to operate under manual and highly inefficient processes, which causes them to miss out on the monetary and strategic benefits of automated invoice management.
