Problems with manual processing

manual invoice processing

Processing accounts payable (AP) invoices by the traditional manual method has been throwing up a number of problems for companies in this fast-moving digital age. Some of the common problems faced in AP departments are;

-High costs per document filed.
– Space consumed by large volumes of AP documents.
– Time wasted manually entering all of the data.
– Risks such as loss of AP, human error entering the data and duplicated documents.

Having identified these problems, many companies go in search of a solution and that’s when they come across invoice scanning.

Invoice scanning

Invoice scanning lets you digitise accounts payable documents and store them more efficiently in a digital document filing system. Companies up and down the country have been jumping on board by switching to automatic invoice processing and why not? Many processes in business are already digital from using email to complete correspondence to the use of digital devices everywhere in the modern-day office so it just makes sense to move all business processes towards a digital method.

Why scan invoices?

Benefits of invoice scanning

By scanning your AP documents, you could benefit from one or all of these.

  • Save costs previously wasted on unproductive tasks and errors. (The number of staff needed to complete the task will also be reduced.)
  • Free up office space by destroying documents previously stored there.
  • Get instant access to AP files through simple text searches.
  • With fully searchable documents, you will reduce the amount of time needed to retrieve relevant documents and refile them.
  • You can also get shared access to documents so APs can be shared across different departments easily.
  • All files are more secure when stored in encrypted and password protected files reducing (and even eliminating) the risks of loss, theft and damage.
  • You will also be providing your AP department with an up to date record management system.
