Invoice Processing efficiency is a bona fide KPI

Organisations need to make invoice processing a priority. It is no longer acceptable to lean on an outdated heavily manual workflow in Accounts Payable. If invoices are habitually taking more than a day to be ingested into systems, more than a week to approve or query, and more than a month to settle then one or more parts of the system are not good enough.

Who says so?

Well, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy for a start. Now that reporting of payment practices is mandated for many businesses, the principles behind this legislation constitute best practice for all. If you would like to arrange a call with one of our consultants about scan/capture, validation/verification, storage, or RPA-driven invoice processes, you can make an appointment via this link
