Invoice Workflow

Save time, reduce costs and improve customer and supplier relations

Invoice Workflow

Paper-based business-to-business invoice processing can be expensive. In fact, in a study of 320 enterprises it was estimated the average cost of processing a single paper invoice was approximately £10.00 ($16.00)!*

If multiple departments and staff are involved in the authorisation chain, not only can the paper-based process be costly, it can also be labor intensive and error prone. As a result, invoice reconciliation is slow, relationships between you and your suppliers and customers deteriorate, and managing cash flow becomes difficult.

The simple solution to these and many other invoice processing problems you may face is to replace your paper-based system with an electronic alternative.
