Complex invoice types, such as utility bills, are some of the most time consuming, error prone, and resource-exhausting invoices to process—and these challenges only grow worse for companies with small, stretched Accounts Payable (AP) teams. What’s more, varied, in-depth, and specialized knowledge is often needed to understand and reconcile many of these invoice types (e.g., utility bills’ multi‐level rate and tariff structures), making exception management exceptionally difficult.
One way to alleviate these problems is to install an AP automation solution that offers functionality specifically for complex invoice management. Solutions like these will not only aid and empower your AP department, but they are also an easy way for change drivers to strengthen their business case for technology adoption in general—as automation brings high ROI for this category.
