If your accounting people, department managers, and CFO are bogged down in manual processes, it’s time to get rid your old accounts payable systems. Especially now when technology will allow such a vast improvement. Their time is valuable, and you should no longer be complacent to allow them to spend it on tasks that technology and automation can actually handle better than they can—in far less time!
I’m sure your vendors would appreciate the upgrade, too. How often does your AP team field calls from them, wondering where their check is...or if you even received their invoice? Having to ask and wonder does not make for happy vendors, and unhappy vendors don’t always do the best possible work they could be doing for you.
