Automate Your Invoice Processing with
Improve your net margin by transforming your Account Payable/Account Receivable operations through automation
The pain – In many organizations, Account Payable/Account Receivable (AP/AR) remains a labor-intensive, paper/check-centric, and expensive process. Lack of control and oversight can create audit issues and payment fraud. With the continual pressure on margin in today’s business, you have every reason to change and streamline/automate the AP/AR operations.
Solution attempts that often do not deliver the savings – To drive cost out of the system, some attempted to streamline it with custom-built platform utilizing tools such as business process management, document capture and management, and EDI platforms. However, these are general-use middleware with minimal (if any) integration with each other. Creating a custom solution takes 8-18 months, with endless studies, hundreds to thousands of hours of development time, plus a huge price tag. They end up with a complex system and infrastructure that they must maintain and support in perpetuity. Any future enhancement would require them to repeat the cycle, and tying up even more precious resources.
This approach often delivers a shorter invoice process time, along with improved control and oversight. But the payment steps mostly stayed the same, paper and checks are still prevalent, and the risk for check fraud has not been addressed. The cost-of-ownership often exceeded the efficiency gains, but it is too late by the time they realize it. In one extreme case, we have seen a large corporation abandoned a completed system after spending well over $1M on software and professional services.
That is the primary reason one still sees archaic AP/AR process using paper and spreadsheets in so many organizations.
Our belief – Our offering team has 15 years of firsthand experience in what works, and what does not work in process automation. We established a few guiding principles in selecting our solutions to avoid common pitfalls:
- Solution must be quick to deploy and custom-built for the AP/AR automation, we avoided all general-purpose middleware approaches that requires significant IT involvement.
- Integration with popular financial and accounting packages must be built-in and not an afterthought, you should not have to replace everything you own to use it.
- If custom business rules and process flows are required to meet your unique needs, business users should be able to accomplish it without IT or developers involvement – this is often the most requested item and it should not be overlooked.
- Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), let the provider take care of security, maintenance, upgrade, scaling, testing, infrastructure, etc.… You should focus on your business, and not running an IT shop.
- SaaS gives you the business agility along with a clear view of your total cost of ownership. You can walk away if it does not deliver value, it protects you from huge sunk cost and wasted resource. The ready-to-use nature also allows you to derive savings in weeks, not months or years.
- Let the provider who specializes in AP/AR optimization innovate for you, it ensures you never fall behind in the efficiency curve
- Modular, pay for what you use. You should be able to adopt it at your pace instead of all-or-nothing.
