Although many people think of technology as being used to replace workers, you can have faster, more efficient, and happier accounts payable employees when you implement workflow automation. Explore how with Impact experts Jon Evans, Director of Solutions Architecture, and Bailey Kennedy, Senior Account Manager.

Accounts Payable Workflow Automation 

As Jon mentions in the video above, digital innovation is about having machines do the machine work so your people can do the “people work.” The main point of accounts payable workflow automation is that it takes over manual and repetitive tasks like scanning invoices, approval routing, archiving, and more so your employees can handle tasks that require cognitive thinking and creative problem-solving. 

All of that is in addition to the fact that it can make the entire process faster and cheaper for you. There’s no reason for collecting money to turn into a department where you spend money excessively. And it allows your staff to work on initiatives that will help your organization grow instead.
