Accounts payable software can streamline and automate your accounts processes while reducing man hours and human error.
Business owners know all too well the demands of accurate accounts management.
The data entry never ends. You often need a team of full-time employees to manage the accounts department of your business. There is no end to the number of bills that need to be processed and married up with purchase orders, delivery dockets and countless other bits of paperwork.
The cost involved in paying staff is significant, but you can’t afford to get behind either. Even if your staff are highly competent, it’s inevitable that errors will occur. Errors often cause business interruption and require substantial man hours to find and fix.
Invoices can get lost or forgotten. The sheer amount of time it takes to process each invoice can cause suppliers to be paid late. It’s important that you have a system in place that ensures your accounts are paid on time, so that you can maintain good relationships with your suppliers.

Manual invoice processing takes a huge amount of time. In contrast, automation makes average invoices processed per Accounts Payable employee increase by roughly 5 times.
In other words, if an AP department can manually process 1,000 invoices per employee each month, automation can bring that number up to 5,000 per employee.
