Invoice Processing

Paper driven, manual accounts payable (AP) departments still process the majority of business invoices, although it has proven to be less efficient than an AP automation solution. In the traditional system, AP invoices are routed manually via paper or through a scanned electronic invoice attached to an email.

Once the route is complete, an employee must manually type the information from the invoice into the automated system. This system adds many costs, wastes time and is prone to human error.

Many of the costs of using a manual AP process are hidden. As such, they are often underestimated. In general, if multiple people must handle a single invoice before it is approved or placed into an AP invoice solution, the costs of data entry, lost time and human error may represent over 50% of the cost of processing.

Many companies forego AP automation because of the upfront costs to implement the new system. However, the money a company saves pays for these costs very quickly. Research has shown that manual invoice processing can cost as much as $20 per invoice, while automating the process drops that cost to $4. The payback for implementing an automated invoice system ranges from six to 18 months. Some of the benefits you can expect from automation include –

  • Cutting the cost of data entry by up to 95%
  • Getting rid of postage fees
  • Automation of the approval process for all invoice types, including contract, PO, non-PO and expense
  • Improving employee morale and overall satisfaction because of touchless processing
  • Cutting back up to 90% of invoice processing time
  • Reducing process bottlenecks
  • Almost instant document retrieval
  • Increased bottom line savings

Requordit provides an AP process automation solution that takes your company paperless and improves your workflow process. Revenues and cash flows will improve as your system for processing payments improves. You will also enjoy better relationships with your suppliers, vendors and end users.

Your invoicing is the lifeblood of your company – do not leave it to slow and inefficient traditional methods. Upgrade into an automation system that will connect you to a better way of doing business.
