5 Signs It's Time to Automate Accounts Payable

Chances are if you’re reading this, your company’s accounts payable process includes necessary employee involvement and paper check payments. These outdated AP practices may not seem like a big detriment to your company, but when you take a closer look at the benefits of AP automation, you can see the unnecessary resources that are being allocated for making payments. So when is a good time to start taking action to implement an automated AP program?

Remove Costs and Inefficiency From Your AP Program with ASAP by Comdata

As payments processes continue to move toward electronic methods, many financial decision makers still tend to overlook the benefits of AP automation and avoid moving to an automated program. What they may not realize is that growing businesses often waste valuable resources by preserving their outdated and inefficient programs – which are full of manual processes and paper check costs. Comdata’s Automated Streamlined Accounts Payable (ASAP) system reduces the cost of your payables process by replacing paper check payments with secure virtual card payments, and gives you extra employee manpower by decreasing the manual involvement in fulfilling payments.
