Control over the information management process is vital for any company. Therefore, when it comes to any automated financial system, the formula to success is straightforward; get your data quickly and easily into a single system where you can access it and manage your entire procurement to payment process in one location.
Automating the Accounting Process
When a company purchases anything - goods or services - on credit from suppliers or vendors, the Accounts Payable (AP) process is how they get paid. The process is detail-oriented and full of opportunity for errors or delays. Since how well the process is conducted has a significant impact on company operations, many companies are turning to digitalization as a way of minimizing human intervention, one that removes repetitive manual tasks such as paper processing, data extraction, or data entry. The technology by which this is accomplished is referred to as AP automation.
Automating the financial systems streamlines operations, providing better visibility and control over the entire workflow process. A complete or holistic accounts payable automation platform enables automation end-to-end processing, from software that captures and converts invoices into a digital format all the way through to approval and payment. While such a system can be either on-premises or cloud-based, the latter means the ability to access information or approve payment from any mobile device, anytime and from anywhere.
The Benefits of Sage 100 ERP
While there are various ways of implementing automation, many companies choose to automate their systems through an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution. An ERP is a software platform that ties together and centralizes a multitude of business processes as accounting, project management, and supply chain operations and, to these companies, the ERP often becomes indispensable for managing day-to-day operations. Sage 100 is one such platform; an easy, affordable, and customizable ERP software designed for small to medium-sized companies. It offers numerous benefits including:
- Increased visibility throughout the invoice process with real-time access,
- High levels of accuracy,
- Better cash management, and
- Increased resilience.
However, by necessity an ERP is somewhat of a generalist since they work with several different systems and departments. This means that the automated accounting systems they offer might lack some of the advanced purchasing options found in dedicated AP software platforms. Recognizing this, Sage Accounting created a strategic partner program.
