Lower operational costs

We feel that our company will be growing in the future and we wanted to have a platform in place that is a best practice technology. We wanted to be able to scale so that we could grow easily and we wanted to be able to grow in such a way with the least amount of head count impact.

I now have an AP department that has good morale. They like their jobs. I don't have people crying which I used to. I have vendors that are getting paid on time. I have stores that are happy. All in all, they've made our employees are one of our biggest resources.

Total invoice visibility

Complete visibility in the AP process. We can see where an invoice is sitting from the time it's ingested into the system all the way to the point of it's just been paid. And we can accommodate suppliers' payment methods. Everything is fully integrated.
