Invoice Automation / AP Automation

Invoice Automation - AP Automation Process

What Is Invoice Processing?

Invoice automation processing is the process your company’s accounts payable team uses to handle invoices from various Vendors. It starts when you receive an invoice and finishes when payment has been made and recorded.

How AP Automation works?

Vendor sends invoices to respective initiators. You can receive paper invoices, PDF, or other electronic means. The invoice must either be scanned or manually entered into Sysfore AP Automation System. In case of Scanned copy, Initiator can send to a configured e-mail. With the help of Cognitive service capabilities using pre-defined Invoice AI data model, data will be extracted from invoice copy and create an invoice transaction in the Sysfore AP Automation System built using Microsoft Power Apps & Power Automate.
