AP Benefits for Accounting Managers

As an Accounting Manager, you create multiple processes for analysing and reporting financial information, ensure organizations follow requirements and recommend improvements for business procedures. Without a modern AP system, it’s difficult to have the information you need to perform these tasks accurately.

You are responsible for AP, AR, capital accounting, general accounting, bank reporting and many other routine tasks. The vast majority of your time is focused on AP, either directly or indirectly.

Invoice processing times are lengthy and you have no visibility into amounts until they are posted to the GL. Multiple spreadsheets with widely spread-out information can only take you so far.
When exceptions come along, there’s no limit to the time it could take to get the exception resolved and posted.

With a modern AP solution, invoice processing time is reduced and all invoice data is available from one single platform. With full visibility of the AP process it’s possible to detect potential bottle necks before they arise and payment delays are avoided.
