Accounts Payable: Automation and Processing

Accounts payable is the structured and systematic approach for managing supplier payments for goods and services based on contractual agreements held with the supplier or based on the supplier’s terms, where a contract may not exist.

Typically, an organisation will focus their efforts on sales and managing clients, accounts receivable or the cash-to-collection aspect of the business and spend less time managing accounts payable and the order-to-cash environment.

This means that while sales are generated an organisation may not be maximising their spending power, buying the right goods and services at the right price or paying suppliers on time and in full, as accounts payable is viewed as a by-product of the organisation’s sales focus.

There are a number of metrics an organisation can look at to understand if they are managing their accounts payable or spend wisely which should form the basis of understanding where your organisation is currently placed or as the basis for automation and process improvement and for measuring return on investment within the Accounts Payable department.
