1. What is AP automation?

AP automation is a technology-driven solution that streamlines and automates the process of managing and processing invoices and payments within an organisation. It typically involves the use of a software to capture, approve, and track invoices, thereby minimising the time and cost of invoice processing, reducing human errors, and increasing efficiency. 

2. How does AP automation work?

AP automation through software like Clear AP enables the extraction of invoice data with high accuracy through advanced OCR technology. Using these digitised invoices, the software undertakes data validations, data enrichment, and data matching to ensure its correctness. 
Next, the invoice goes to the respective teams or managers for approval while leaving a detailed digital audit trail. Finally, the invoice is paid for, and these payments can be tracked through the same automation software. The automation software also sends timely reminders whenever a payment is nearing its due date. It further allows vendor communication in case of any discrepancies, all from within the same portal. 

3. What are the benefits of AP automation?

The benefits of AP automation include lower costs, faster invoice processing, increased accuracy, faster invoice cycle times, enhanced visibility and reporting, streamlined compliance, and access to an audit trail.

4. Why is accounts payable automation important for businesses?

AP automation will not only reduce the time involved in managing payables but will also improve the performance and efficiency of the process. Efficient management of accounts payable ensures that invoices are paid for on time, helping maintain positive relationships with vendors while avoiding late payment penalties. It even gives businesses opportunities to leverage early payment discounts. By closely monitoring and optimising this process, businesses can better control their working capital and improve their financial stability. 

5. How can AP automation help my enterprise improve its vendor relationships?

AP automation enables faster invoice processing and, overall, a shorter invoice cycle time, allowing faster payments to vendors. In addition, AP automation solutions have inbuilt tools for better vendor communication and quicker resolutions. All of these factors foster better vendor relationships in the long run.

6. How can AP automation help me reduce fraud?

AP automation almost completely eliminates the need for manual effort. From manual data entry to verification to data matching is all done with a click of a button. Fraudulent vendors can be identified and fake invoices can easily be detected. Further, every single entry and approval provides a detailed audit trail. This makes it almost impossible for both internal and external fraud to take place.
