The way companies handle invoices has changed drastically over the past decade. There has been a movement away from manual, paper-based AP departments towards functions that utilize software for repetitive, low-value jobs and free up employees to handle more strategic tasks.
But there are many companies processing invoices manually. It might be because they can’t get buy-in for automation, or because they’re afraid there won’t be a return on investment. But year over year one of the most popular reasons companies choose to avoid automation is because of a lack of education on what’s available.
