Want to tackle unnecessary AP costs?
We know what's stopping you


As Chief Financial Officer, you'll be aware that a substantial share of your invoice processing costs are locked up in the manual handling of paper, fax and email invoices, and keying them into your Purchase-to-Pay (P2P) system for processing. Accounts Payable staff also spend hours every week responding to supplier phone and email enquiries about when invoices will be paid. 

The solution is an obvious one - move suppliers to electronic invoice methods, so you can dramatically reduce time and costs. But this is only achievable if suppliers participate, which can be a challenge

How to win the hearts and
minds of your suppliers 

 
PROACTIS recognises that the best people to simplify your Accounts Payable processes are your suppliers. But you can’t expect them to change what they do - just because you ask. It takes a collaborative, secure, largely automated process that’s clearly beneļ¬cial for everyone.

Suppliers are more than willing to work with you - given the right opportunity. Just make it easy for them to interact with you electronically, provide information that's valuable to them, and involve them effectively in your processes. The PROACTIS Supplier Network Service is the answer.

Going electronic is good
for everyone


The PROACTIS Supplier Network Service is a fast, easy and affordable way to realise the substantial cost savings of electronic invoices and other forms of electronic interaction with suppliers.

First it turns 100% of your invoices into ready-to-process electronic records. Suppliers get self-service tools so they can check payment status at any time. It then enables you to move suppliers across to full electronic invoicing to drive down the cost of processing still further.

Keep it simple. Get everything you
need in one place

 
As a managed service, the Supplier Network Service provides everything you need, using a combination of cloud-based software and services. It builds an online directory of your active suppliers and uses the PROACTIS Supplier Network as a secure basis for interactions.

The compelling benefits are explained clearly to suppliers - and it's easy for them to register, check the status of invoices and update their own profiles. Meanwhile, you can immediately turn paper and email invoices into ready-to-process electronic records using
the PROACTIS Invoice Data Capture Service.
