YES! YOU WANT TO AUTOMATE ACCOUNTS PAYABLE.
STILL WONDERING WHY YOU SHOULD AUTOMATE YOUR ACCOUNTS PAYABLE?
If you spend less of your time completing tasks that your software can help you automate, you will have more time to grow your business or improve your product or services. Even if you have help to complete these tasks, you will want to leverage your system to streamline your workflow. Doing so will help you accomplish more in less time. Simply put, more efficient processes mean a stronger bottom line and more opportunities for growth. Consider for a moment one change that accounts payable automation could bring. If your suppliers email you invoices, automated accounts payable could extract that attached invoice and create an invoice entry for that expense that you could then review and schedule for payment. What used to be a multiple step process can be condensed down to one step with little or no data entry.
