Accounts Payable – The Present & Future of Automation


As the country begins the slow process of reopening offices, schools, and public venues, it’s a good time to reflect on the lessons learned over the past few months. The pandemic deeply affected businesses and identified significant operational gaps that made employees scramble to complete day-to-day responsibilities, especially in a remote environment.

Finance departments, specifically Accounts Payable, struggled with checks going to empty offices, payments being delayed or not paid, and risked damaging long-standing vendor relationships. In addition, the same manual, costly, and time-consuming processes that existed pre-pandemic continue to be on-going pain points for AP personnel.
