Accounts Payable (AP) Automation FAQs
How does AP Automation help with eInvoicing?
You can transform paper and PDF invoices into ready-to-process electronic invoices. A scanned image of the document is created, all necessary information extracted, electronic record and electronic image of the invoice created. Manual invoice coding is eliminated, exception handling is reduced and the resulting electronic invoice record can be automatically matched and approved.

Paper invoices are eliminated from your invoicing process, regardless of the type and size of your suppliers. It doesn't matter if they are high or low volume suppliers - there is a suitable method of invoicing for everyone. AP software can capture not only paper invoices, but also common e-invoice formats such as XML or UBL 2.0 and transfer them to your target system in the desired format.
What is AP automation?
Accounts Payable Automation, or AP automation, is the handling of accounts payable processes digitally using technology, rather than manually. A highly automated, lower cost process greatly streamlines processing of all invoices from receipt to payment, providing real-time visibility of what's happening in your finance operation, unlocking the key information you need for enhanced financial decision making.

What are the challenges that Accounts Payable (AP) Automation can solve?
  • Unstructured invoices – dealing with all types of invoices (which have no common format) across the supply chain is a challenge with many issues.
  • Paper and PDF invoices lead to extensive manual keying and associated keying errors, as well as misplaced paper documents.
  • These manually intensive, error-prone tasks lead to non-conforming invoices, excess costs, inaccurate payments and the risk of fraud.
  • Lack of efficiency eliminates the ability to take advantage of early payment revenues.
  • The opportunity for broader finance transformation is difficult until accounts payable processes are improved and automated.
