In the world of paper invoices, accounts payable often needs two things to pay the bills: more time and more people.


That’s because an AP department built around paper is a cost center consumed with overhead: performing data entry, fixing invoices with errors, and answering phone calls about payment status.  That leaves little time for strategic activities that can help move a business forward.


There’s magic, though, in a digital economy, where business networks connect buyers and suppliers, and invoices can process themselves. When that happens, the AP function can rise above the paper to play a vital role in helping procurement enforce compliance, and support corporate initiatives to manage cash and working capital.
