Why Automate Your Accounts Payable Processes?

By automating your accounts payable processes, you will see several benefits:

    • Early payment discounts and avoid late payment penalties: By accelerating the invoice approval cycle time, vendor discounts for early payment, which were previously unattainable, can now be taken advantage of. Also, you can avoid having to pay unnecessary penalties for late payment.
    • Accuracy: By accelerating the invoice approval cycle time, vendor discounts for early payment, which were previously unattainable, can now be taken advantage of. Also, you can avoid having to pay unnecessary penalties for late payment.
    • Improved visibility and forecasting: Decision makers need the right information at their fingertips in order to make informed decisions. CoreIntegrator Workflow allows management to see the where your invoices are at any point in the process.

Work Smarter…Not Harder.

It’s no surprise that large companies of today are booming with production to support their consumers, which creates the need to process hundreds or thousands of invoices monthly. It’s also no surprise that those in charge of processing invoices are spending countless hours of their time keying in data from the invoices, when that time could be spent promoting the company itself, developing strategies with coworkers and other important tasks. In fact, processing a SINGLE invoice can cost anywhere from $14 to $20. A company that processes 25,000 invoices per year at $15 per invoice will end up spending $375,000 of their own money in this process. Think about it – that money could be used for so many other projects rather than spending it to process invoices! Why choose manual processing that wastes thoughts of dollars per year when you could use an automated invoice processing solution like CoreIntegrator’s A/P One at a fraction of the cost?

 

A/P One forces companies to work smarter, not harder because it literally does the work for you. The minutes of time it takes to manually enter data into each invoice can be totally eliminated with A/P One’s fully automated invoice receipt, data entry and data verification (verified by a human). With A/P One’s automated invoice approval process, your company’s approvers can save even more time. Just think of all the extra projects your company can work on with the employee time saved when processing invoices.

 

Work SMARTER with CoreIntegrator’s cloud-based invoice processing solution, A/P One, today and get out of work on time!

 

In our next blog, we’ll be breaking this process down even more and showing you a cost-savings analysis based on a company that process 500 invoices per month. We’ll compare the company’s current invoice processing cost, and show you what happens when A/P One comes into play.

How to Evaluate a Potential AP Automation Solution Provider – Part 2

As you continue the path to determine what solution and provider is best for you, you have now narrowed it down to 2-3 solutions.  Now it is time to get deep into the evaluation process and choose a solution.

In Depth Demo:   It is time to have another demo with the remaining solutions.  For this demo, it is time to make a lists of items that you want to see the systems do, not what the vendor wants to show you.  Remember that demonstration systems are just that and cannot always customize everything you are hoping to see but you should be able to get a pretty good idea of what to expect, especially when it comes to the integration component. From this demo, you should have a very good idea of what each solution can do for you and evaluate the solution, estimate a price, and schedule to make a final decision.

Discovery Process:  Once you have selected a vendor/partner – it is time (before contracts are signed) to perform a discovery process and document exactly what is to be delivered based on your requirements.  This documentation process should result in a project scope document that will be used to determine:  final cost, deliverable items, schedule, and out-of-scope requirements (if there are any).  Do not short cut this process.  It should be thoroughly complete and detailed enough to avoid misunderstandings later.

Contracts and Proposals. There should be enough information that explains everything to be delivered, what the implementation process includes (and does not include), as well as ongoing support and maintenance fees/policies.

A successful implementation requires full commitment from both sides and having resources scheduled for critical items is mandatory for a smooth process.  You will need to be prepared to perform various user acceptance testing (UAT) tasks, review workflows, forms, and functionality throughout the process.

Congratulations and best of success with your new workflow solution.  Hopefully this will change the way you work and complete tasks in a much more efficient way than you are doing it today.

Who Should Attend?

SO, YOU’VE DECIDED YOU WANT TO AUTOMATE YOUR ACCOUNTS PAYABLE PROCESSES, NOW WHAT?

There’s a lot of ‘buzz’ in the payables industry, about saving time and money with AP Automation. You’ve decided that you want to understand more about AP Automation and how it may benefit YOUR organization. What should you do next?

Here are some tips to consider as you start to move your organization toward an AP Automation Solution.

Understand your Existing Processes:

·         Prior to talking to AP Automation vendors, one of the most important considerations is to understand your existing business processes.  Once you’ve determined which process it makes most sense to automate, it is important to document your current process including all the written and “unwritten” rules or policies.  Remember, the objective is to increase the efficiency of this process so investing in a workflow technology to “just do the same thing you’ve been doing for years” may not be the best investment in this technology.

·         Many business practices were put into place for good reason but over time they have lost their value and are only practiced because of habit, not because it still makes sense.  A good workflow partner will help you through this process evaluation and should be asking you “why” you perform certain tasks. Change is OK and in many cases, change can make a huge difference between a successful implementation (achieving your goals and objectives) or not.

 Integrations:

·         The next decision is to determine if and how the workflow will be integrated into any of your key business applications – such as your accounting system and supporting applications. There are many forms of integration, so it’s important to understand how “tight” of an integration you need or desire.  In some instances, it may only require the passing of basic data back and forth, but in other situations it should be more seamlessly integrated and in a real time environment.  When a tight integration is required, it is important to either partner with a workflow company that truly understands your applications (both technically and from a business standpoint) or have that skill set in-house.  When you engage a vendor, they will work with your technical team and consultants to help you understand the level of integration that is necessary.

 Engaging a vendor:

·         When you engage with an AP Automation vendor, they should review your process analysis and integration requirements during an in-depth discovery process. The discovery is where your team and the vendor covers every detail of each process and integration. Collaboration and discussion between your team and the vendor will be key in developing a scope of work document for the project.

·         When you get a proposal from vendors, they should be based on your specific requirements outlined in the scope of work document. If vendors provide pricing estimates without doing a discovery and creating the scope document, the project has little success of being completed on time, on budget and delivering your desired workflow results.

 

As with most projects, in order to have a successful implementation that meets your functionality and cost objectives, you must be willing to spend time and resources upfront to plan the project.  If you plan and prepare properly, your project will have a much higher degree of success and will be completed on time and on budget.  This means thoroughly understanding your requirements for the solution and evaluating your options with the vendors you are about to partner with for the project.
