Why Automate AP and Payment Processes?

New KwikTag Whitepaper Discusses the Future of Automation

Manual AP processes usually involve lots of paper and lack of visibility into invoice and payment processes. Paper-based, manual invoice and payment processes introduce inefficiencies such as lengthy invoice approval times, lack of visibility, data entry errors, and poor data management. These can lead to payment errors and lost payments.

The pandemic has worsened these challenges because it introduced additional challenges that come with complex work environments. With some team members continuing to work from home, AP and finance teams struggle more than ever with collaboration, communication, and productivity.

Despite this, many companies still do not see AP automation as a necessity due to business size, budget, or other factors. However, with shifting work environments and recent technological advances, automation is now more important than ever.

Implementing an AP and payment automation solution can help improve efficiency and visibility into the financial audit trail – no matter where team members are located. Many organizations plan to keep some elements of remote work in place for the foreseeable future, even when some return to the office. Because of this, they look to automation to ease the burden of manual processes.
