Go Paperless With Automated Finance Processes

The cost of manual supplier invoice processing

According to research and analysis group, Gartner, typically the cost of processing an invoice in the UK ranges from £4 to £25, and in some cases is as high as £50, per individual invoice.

Did you know that a third of UK Finance decision-makers always print off invoices received by email?

In the new world of hybrid work, do you worry that your reliance on manual or paper-based processes:

➼ Presents a significant challenge to document control and data security?
➼ Risks error and document loss across the organisation?
➼ Prohibits remote working and prevents you from hiring and retaining the best people for your team?
