Turbo-charge SAP Accounts Payable

Find out how in a few easy to implement steps

Organisations can achieve real savings – quickly - in their AP function by deploying BizAps SAP add-on solutions. With so many solutions on offer, however –– what’s the right choice?

First-off: no single solution will fully optimise your AP process, but you can find the best fit for you and your suppliers. Learn how to review the applicability of imaging, workflow, OCR, e-invoicing hubs, direct XML links, supplier portals, purchase cards (plastic and lodge), and self billing to your supplier profile and capability – and then make the right choice. Join this free webinar to learn how:

  • Only a blend of solutions can optimise your AP process
  • AP efficiency is positively impacted by good procurement practice
  • Purchase cards can be a route to e-invoicing when aligned to purchase orders

Avoid the common pitfalls like assuming OCR is a solve-all, or that 100% e-invoicing is achievable. Instead, focus on what you can achieve:

  • 40,000 invoices per FTE per annum
  • Processing cycle time reductions of 65%
  • Increase in payments earning discounts
  • On-time payment percentage improved from 15% to 59%

Also: map your performance levels to best-in-class industry benchmarks to establish your ‘benefits opportunity’.
