Having the IDC MarketScape recognize Corcentric’s AP automation solution is validation that our mission to help companies reduce operating costs and unlock new potential within their enterprise is being achieved,” said Matt Clark, President and COO, Corcentric.
Purchase-to-pay cycle is regarded as one of the company strengths in the report, as evidenced by Corcentric’s ability to manage invoices from purchase order requisition to payment disbursement, as well as supply chain financing. Corcentric was also touted for intangible items such as a hands-on approach to onboarding and an overall high level of AP expertise with full knowledge of the needs and challenges of a back-office operation.
The Corcentric AP suite streamlines the transaction process from purchase order and invoice creation and transmission, purchase order acknowledgement, invoice capture and virtualization, automatic three-way matching, to cost allocation, approval workflows, and payment disbursements.
“AP workflows are quickly changing as part of digital transformation initiatives. Accounts Payable is rapidly adopting new technologies to cope with the new market dynamics. As digital transformation continues to evolve within AP functions, the importance of machine learning, big data and analytics, and even blockchain will increase rapidly,” said Kevin M.
