In an earlier post on this topic, I asked, "What are your invoice volumes, and how many people do you have assigned to invoice processing? If you have moved from paper processing to an electronic process, what improvements are you seeing?"
For those looking to probe a little further as well as compare AP performance against your peers, I encourage you to visit this Aberdeen Group micro site. Here, you can walk through a performance benchmark and access research reports on a variety of topics relating to the accounts payable function.
Accounts payable performance benchmarking is also a featured session at Ariba Live, April 10-12, so there's another good reason you should plan to attend.
