e-Invoicing and Accounts Payable Automation: Maximizing Potentials
Accounts payable (AP) automation has continuously created positive buzz across industries in recent years. Along with its upward trend is the growing prominence of electronic invoicing or e-invoicing, an effective and efficient way of extracting and validating vast volumes of invoices received daily from different sources and in varied formats. As simpler platforms, e-invoicing and AP automation help companies – big or small – to eliminate the burden of costly and laborious manual processing.
However, optimizing and selecting an effective e-invoicing and AP automation software platform can be challenging. Thus, it is essential for companies to have a keen understanding of how AP automation and e-invoicing solutions can be maximized. Businesses must also be cognizant of selecting the appropriate software platform that would specifically cater to their needs.

Jess Scheer, Executive Editor
- 2020 was the year of AP Automation: 3 in 4 AP departments now have some system in place; 2 in 3 invoices are now e-invoices — both are up from less than 50% just 18 months ago.
- In 2021, the big question will be: “now what?” Automating a bad process just makes bad worse faster. So, the key will be identifying the process changes and internal controls to gain efficiencies from these new investments.
- Just because you have something, doesn’t mean it’s the right or best thing. So, the question becomes: what additional functionality will be helpful to prepare to become a more successful AP department of the future. (What do you need to assist with cash/expense management and forecasting, etc.)
