Four Ways Shared Services Organisations Can Extend the Value of their ERP Investments with Accounts Payable Automation
ERP applications lie at the heart of financial operations, yet many are not optimised because the Accounts Payable processes that feed them are manual and paper-based. As a result, data fed into the ERP is incomplete, incorrect or not timely, processes are inefficient, and decision-makers do not have access to key variables.
The impact of relying on manual, paper-based Accounts Payable processes is especially pronounced in the growing number of shared services centres, where invoice processing is more complex, and businesses are more likely to use multiple ERP applications in an operation, region, or worldwide.
This white paper from the Accounts Payable and Procure-to-Pay Network discusses how shared services organisations can improve the way they capture, validate, route and manage accounts payable data across multiple ERP applications, including:
- Why more Accounts Payable departments are operating as part of a shared services organisation
- The challenges of manually processing invoices in a shared services organisation with multiple ERPs
- How enterprise content management (ECM) solutions address these challenges
