The Approval Challenge

Organisations are challenged with process inefficiencies and lack of an accurate audit trail during manual exception handling. The overall outcome is often sub-optimal compliance and strained customer/supplier relationships.


Paper based processes create additional workloads and added responsibilities for departmental managers and workers throughout the workplace.

Accounts Payable departments in today’s organisations operate under increasingly strict and yet fluctuating requirements.

From satisfying external customer demands, to meeting increasingly stringent financial controls and internal margins, much depends on the success and efficiency of the accounts payable team.

Technology is changing the way accounts payable departments function. Automation is driving productivity and efficiency, as well as cost reduction.

Enter the age of the Integrated Accounts Payable Solution

To ensure invoices are promptly paid and mishandling does not compromise hard-earned business relationships, organisations are increasingly depending on an integrated accounts payable solution with their back-end enterprise system.
