Smart Invoice Management: The Foundation of a Healthy Financial Supply Chain

The invoice. It’s not just for paying anymore. Digitize it, automate its processing, and it becomes an asset – a critical tool for achieving larger goals.

Yes, automation lowers processing costs. Significantly, by about 60%. That’s reason enough to use our invoice management software. But what’s more, only SAP Ariba offers smart invoicing through the Ariba Network. Working with SAP Ariba, you can do so much more to help your organization achieve its financial supply chain management goals, including:

  • Accelerate cycle time, processing invoices within days, or even hours
  • Automate exception-handling, relying on more than 80 built-in business rules
  • Strengthen compliance and prevent savings leakage, matching invoices to contracts, POs, and service entry sheets
  • Boost cash returns, capturing more early-payment discounts
  • Mitigate supply risk, helping suppliers improve their cash flow
  • Empower suppliers to monitor payment status themselves

Now, instead of spending its time handling paper, data entry, exceptions, and phone calls, your AP team can focus on more strategic pursuits. Like helping to free up cash and working capital.
