Recently updated on July 10th, 2023 at 12:25 pm
The global Accounts Payable Automation Market size is expected to grow from USD 1.9 billion in 2019 to USD 3.1 billion by 2024
Businesses are shifting from manual, tedious and error-prone AP processes to smart, intuitive, fast and controlled approval processes.
The primary focus of small medium business owners is maintaining and growing the business. As a result, essential tasks such as record keeping, reporting and managing transactions bring challenges that are completely different from the goals of growing the business. Each business is unique – size, business classification, vendors and customers, number of transactions, business budget and working capital, employees’ skill sets, etc. But financial management remains a mission-critical challenge.
Some of the pressing AP challenges of Small Medium Businesses
- Lack of visibility of AP accounts, delayed reconciliation, increased per-invoice costs, resulting due to information overload and processing delays.
- Ineffective communication with vendors through mail or fax, resulting in non-standard POs and invoicing formats, and incompatible workflows.
- The manual process of AP takes too long and is resource intensive – twenty dollars or more per invoice.
- Unrecorded, duplicate, inaccurate, unauthorized or misdirected transactions
- Lack of financial forecasting, budgeting
- Error-prone manual processes for requisition, scanning supplier and issuing payment
- Lack of integrated technology or no technology solutions in place to prevent late payments, under- or over-payments, duplicate or missed payments
- Lack of collaboration across different business units and stakeholders
