CEF eDelivery Action

Businesses automate repetitive or manual tasks where they identify scope to save money and increase efficiency.

When it comes to processing high volumes of outgoing or incoming invoices, typically many staff will be involved hands-on so it’s no surprise that both AP (accounts payable) and AR (accounts receivable) are seen as areas ripe for automation.

Invoice processsing offers benefits to both sides of the business.

The disadvantages of not having automated invoicing

A study of finance teams in UK companies by Wax Digital revealed several knock-on effects of poorly managed manual invoice processing.

Respondents said this impacted on teams’ ability to perform effectively. This can lead to low job satisfaction and damage relationships with trading partners.

Typical frustrations include dealing with invoices that contain mistakes in financial information such as missing out essential VAT numbers.

Gaining efficiencies

Virtually all of those surveyed said an eInvoicing solution can create opportunities to reallocate staff to higher-value tasks and so deliver greater efficiencies.

In the last few years, the use of dedicated software to automate invoice processing has risen. More and more companies have begun exchanging orders and invoices electronically through an EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) platform. This is because they recognise that eInvoicing can reduce costs compared with paper or digital image-based systems.

According to global research by Swiss analysts Billentis, costs can fall by up to 80%.

A report by Atradius UK in 2018 found that two-thirds of suppliers had achieved faster payments after the adoption of digital solutions for invoice processing.

By minimising the costs of managing their supply or distribution networks, they had kept their cashflows healthier.

Flexibility and transparency

Here at digital supply chain technology provider Transalis we have developed an invoice processing platform, that offers a host of benefits for AR and AP teams.

Unlike other providers, we offer you flexibility on service input and complete transparency on cost through four separate eInvoice product bundles. The choice depends on how many trading connections you have and what exactly you want to achieve through invoice processing automation.

Companies looking to optimise AR and AP processes, including niche manufacturers taking their first steps into digital transformation, will find eInvoice Essential of particular help. Like the other bundles, eInvoice Essential helps you increase efficiency through easy integration with your ERP and financial systems. It provides automated matching and validation of invoice data, along with a deep-store archive to reduce auditing time and costs.

Visibility

Crucially, from the AP and AR point of view, eInvoice Essential enables you to record all AP and AR invoices with a digital time and date signature. This is a great boost for complete, end-to-end process visibility, tracking and analysis.

As well as improving efficiency, invoice processing by Transalis provides you with instant reporting, an increasing requirement of international tax rules if you have a global trading network.

You also have the reassurance that Transalis is recognised as one of just five providers in the world to fulfil the EU’s requirement for a common eInvoice standard.

Complementing our eInvoice product bundles is a fully supported onboarding process to bring your trading partners onto your digital platform.

To summarise the benefits of automating your invoice processing, you can:

  • Have efficient invoice processing from point of entry across all back-office systems
  • Reduce error rates
  • Achieve smoother, more cost-efficient data flows
  • Demonstrate a return on investment
  • Digitise invoice storage for auditing and reporting
  • Increase scope to redeploy administrative resource to higher-value activities
