Step Six 

Think about the visibility you have into your invoice approval process (the one we discussed in step four). Do you know where an invoice is at any given time? Is that information easy to find? Do you have any data about the bottlenecks in your process? If you answered ‘no,’ or hesitated to answer any of these questions, it’s time to consider AP automation.

Similarly, how easy is it for you to find an invoice related to a question or transaction you’re working on? What if it’s audit season and you need to find supporting documents; how long does that take? If your answer to any of these questions was any longer than ‘instantly,’ you could benefit from having your invoice process digital and available at your fingertips.

Step Seven 

Step seven is when you put it all together! Think about everything you’ve considered in steps one through six— all the pain points and the exhaustion you’ve realized is caused by manual paper-based processes in your business.

Wouldn’t it be great to have complete visibility into your AP process for any member of your team? Wouldn’t it be a relief if your data was extracted automatically, and routing for approval was only a click of a button? Sounds like a dream come true, doesn’t it?

It doesn’t have to be a dream.
