You’re responsible for ensuring that invoices are received and processed with speed and accuracy. That’s a big job when you’re mired manual processes and your invoices arrive in mix of electronic and paper formats. When you’re forced to spend your time and focus on reviewing, matching, coding and keying all of your invoices, it seems impossible to achieve strategic goals such as lowering transaction costs, streamlining processes and ensuring that the savings negotiated by procurement are actually realized. You need to stay compliant with evolving privacy laws but managing risk and compliance can be challenging. There are tools available that could automate your processes, increase efficiency and reduce the time you spend on administrative tasks, yet capital and IT investments for an AP system are challenging in the current business environment.


  • Paper invoices slow processing time, increase transaction costs and introduce risks associated with manual data entry errors.
  • Time to focus on exceptions is compromised by the need to touch routine invoices.
  • Visibility and data analysis for executive decision making is challenging.


  • Reduce employees involvement to exception processing?
  • Increase speed and accuracy while lowering transaction costs?
  • Improve your controls, tracking, process visibility and information availability?


48% of back-office employees surveyed by Paystream in 2018 said that manual data entry and inefficient processes are the biggest pain point they experience in their workflow process.
