Process Mining can do wonders for your Accounts Payable – maybe money really does grow on trees!

Accounts Payable is one of the broadest and most important processes within any company.  Its purpose is to pay invoices that are legitimate and accurate, and by doing so to ensure that a company’s financial statements are accurate.


Tracking each invoice and knowing the different processing paths an invoice can take through all departments and multiple IT systems is a daunting task. Because the Accounts Payable department manages the financials, it has many layers of policies, regulations, auditing, and associated “red tape” to ensure the accuracy of the financial reporting.  And because suppliers and vendors rely on the Accounts Payable department to provide timely accurate payments, inefficiencies will negatively impact those relationships, which in turn will have a direct impact on your customers.
