Accounts Payable Automation
BSC Accounts Payable
Every organization, no matter the size or industry, has an Accounts Payable department. Similarly, most of these departments are continually looking for ways to simplify and streamline their processes to gain efficiency, improve accuracy, and ultimately cut costs. That’s why it’s critical to appropriately identify places in the AP process that could use improvement. Paper, faxes, and other documents received in a variety of formats make processing, matching, and workflow approval difficult and expensive.
Throughout the southeast, BSC helps busy AP staff manage the tasks associated with everything from invoice processing, to audits with ease.
- Manage the intake and processing of invoices by automatically extracting key data (like PO numbers, vendor name, invoice number), appropriately filing documentation, and automatically storing for quick retrieval
- Once an invoice is in the system information is automatically routed to appropriate employees for approval based on created roles or requirements, delivering notifications and tracking activities to improve transparency and eliminate bottlenecks.
- Information is managed with payment deadlines so nothing is missed, and late fees or duplicate payments are a thing of the past.
- The intuitive dashboard automatically populates useful analytics and notifies staff of any pending due dates, so any challenges – like invoice processing time – can be strategically and continually improved upon.
