eRequester Delivers AP Automation with Intelligent Workflow Features

Customers increase efficiency and control with new invoice processing features

Via PRLog.org — September 1, 2016, Seattle, WA — eRequester continues to advance customer-forward features that enhance financial practices around corporate purchase to pay. Responding to real-market needs for approval workflow in the procurement and expense management space the eRequester platform includes a plethora of new features to further automate key processes and streamline business decision making. The latest offering of the AP Automation module reduces the need for data entry at the capture of invoice data and offers a comprehensive solution for financial transaction management.

eRequester AP Automation addresses the needs of users while taking advantage of unique workflow features available only in eRequester, greatly enhancing the ability of the organization to deal with real world financial transactions. The new solution will provide users of eRequester with features including:

  • Easily automate the management of AP invoices from vendors – from recurrent expenditures to non-PO items requiring payment.
  • Further facilitate engagement with your vendors to expedite payment of invoices
  • Take advantage of built-in custom workflow capabilities in eRequester to simplify routing

The solution allows the AP clerk to determine ahead of time which venders will be supported by the solution and enables the use of separate invoice templates, as needed, to handle any specific accounting requirements relative to each vendor. Built-in authorization-routing tools allow the team to set custom settings for out-of-office and overrides, establish approval hierarchy based on department, purchase or expense amount, or type of expenditure. End-users can easily add in notifications while the new mobile entry interface provides ease of initiation of the workflow.

“This is something the market has been asking for and our team is really pleased to be able to offer this solution for AP workflow automation enablement.” says Paperless Business Systems president and CEO, Randy Pape. “This new feature offering provides massive savings for businesses and allows financial teams to focus instead on more critical work items such as analyzing data and to focus on strategic decision-making,” continues Pape.

While existing AP solutions are available, eRequester offers a broad platform for staff enablement while greatly enhancing the ability of accounts payable to manage their workload. Operators in parallel industries offer solutions claiming to similar functionality but organizations find they include primitive AP automation functionality and are quickly stymied by their complicated processes and limitations.

“What eRequester has done by incorporating AP Automation is to enhance feature offerings to customers by providing a deep foundation and feature set that improves the traditional purchase-to-pay processes,” says Pape. “We’ve worked with financial decision makers and managers from many organization’s and multiple industries to learn what their pain points and real-world needs are. The eRequester platform was designed to deliver a world-class spend management software suite tailored to each organization based on industry leading best practices. The latest version of eRequester really simplifies and boosts customer control with intelligent automation and easily accommodates even the most difficult of routing requirements to ensure corporate compliance and spend control. Over time organizations will be able to improve operational and transactional abilities and increase capabilities without the need for additional headcount. That’s a tremendous savings over time and in keeping with eRequester’s rapid ROI rating.”
