We understand your Accounts Payable (AP) Automation challenges

  • 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.

We have
the solution

Capture all of your invoices and convert non electronic data (paper and PDFs) into eInvoices, validate their accuracy by checking for a PO, duplicates and a valid supplier, and then transfer them into your finance system for matching and payment approval.

Our fully automated Accounts Payable software offers efficient invoice management which enables complete audit visibility, stronger compliance, fast query resolution (with a dedicated query resolution team) and the opportunity to support suppliers with early payment without adversely affecting your cashflow. Additionally, it helps enhance supplier engagement and reduce invoice fraud by eliminating invoice tampering, validating suppliers and confirming goods receipt.

Choose to run the process yourself using our AP automation solution, or take advantage of our fully managed capture service where all invoices are 100% electronic, cleansed and available for matching/approval or pre-matching query resolution within 48 hours.

What you can do
Intelligent document and data capture

Turn paper and PDF invoices into ready-to-process electronic records using advanced OCR scanning technology. It captures a scanned image of the document, extracts all the key information, creates an electronic record and provides instant access to the electronic image of the invoice.

Switch to 100% paperless invoicing - from day one 

Further increase efficiencies by eliminating the use of paper invoices with any type or size of supplier. You can select the best-fit approach for each supplier, including high volume/frequent suppliers as well as low volume/infrequent suppliers. These include: eInvoice file transfer, online supplier self-service direct entry and ‘PO Flip’ invoice submission.

Make processing hands-free, wherever possible

Processing becomes highly streamlined because coding is ready-populated upstream. Invoice receipt, review, matching and approval can be handled automatically, saving hours for your staff, while stopping fraud and error. Faster processing leads to easier cash management, swifter payments and early discounts.

Benefit from closer supplier relationships

AP Automation becomes even more efficient when combined with The Business Network from Proactis. You can take collaboration to the next level and embrace 'best practice', streamlining communications and providing suppliers with a wealth of self-service tools.
