What is AP Automation ?
Accounts Payable Automation is a proven business strategy to create value and revenue by simplifying the tedious cycle of processing invoices from initial receipt to final payment.
Automation of invoice processing reduces reliance on paper forms, faxes and documents providing the advantage of dynamic discounts and accelerated payments. It provides finance personnel with greater visibility over liabilities, cash management, accruals and accounting processes.
The Pacific Commerce AP Automation solution combines content and business processes to create an automated workflow that moves invoices through a well-defined series of tasks and approvals, whilst seamlessly integrating with your enterprise systems.
