Technology today is a driving force behind business efficiency and productivity, transforming the accounting profession by automating complex, repetitive tasks and processes while also transitioning the accountant's role into a more strategic, innovative position. However, despite proof of vast improvements in accuracy, lower operating costs, and increased efficiency, not all companies are eager to embrace technological change. For business leaders it's time to understand the importance of AP automation in order to remain competitive.
Have you ever asked how one automates a finance department? Or why, having decided to move forward, you would specifically focus on accounting automation software? The argument for doing so is straightforward. Simply put, smart technologies in finance makes a difference by empowering your team to increase their workload both better and more accurately, lifting overall efficiency and productivity to new levels.
"Artificial intelligence is boosting efficiency and making life easier for thousands of AP professionals today."
- Laurent Charpentier, in the article "Accounts Payable Artificial Intelligence Might Be Your Best Co-Worker"
A cloud-based accounting system means storing, accessing, and managing your business books and financial data online. Cloud-based accounting software is similar to the traditional on-premises accounting software except hosted online on a remote server. Not only can accounting in the cloud save you money, cloud-based accounting software offers benefits in areas including security, accessibility, accuracy, speed, consistency, environmental, and of course automation.
