“Improve productivity and reduce invoice processing times by 80%.”


Processing both paper and electronic invoices typically requires manual effort that can be costly, error-prone and of course open to fraud. By automating your Accounts Payable Department you can streamline the invoicing process, eliminate potential human errors, significantly reduce the cost per invoice processed and improve fraud mitigation.

“By 2020, just 2 years from now…more than seven billion people and businesses, and at least 30 billion devices, will be connected to the internet, with people, businesses and things communicating, transacting and even negotiating with each other .”

Join us to learn how you can improve your AP Process with Control & Efficiency.

Why attend?

From setting up new suppliers, raising purchase orders and approving invoices, the AP workflow is ripe with fraud opportunities.
