Invoice Processing Automation

Shorten invoice cycle times and reduce costs with automated invoice processing

Manual and paper-based invoice processing is time-consuming and expensive. As AP pressures mount and invoice volumes continue to grow, accounts payable departments are turning to AP automation solutions in the form of automated invoice capture and invoice workflow software to keep up – and keep cost per invoice down.

The OnBase accounts payable solution provides invoice workflow that automates invoice management to speed cycle times and lower costs. Regardless of format, OnBase captures invoices electronically and delivers them to the appropriate people and systems for review, approval and coding. The automated invoice workflow minimizes the number of touches per transaction, eliminates the need to re-key information and route paperwork between departments.

How does invoice workflow work?
