All through accounts payable automation solutions for education.

Whilst the education of students may be front and centre for schools; supporting that is an often-invisible activity – accounts payable. It’s the people and processes that ensure the pipeline of supplies and services flows to teachers, students, and all who enable the day’s learning activities.

However, we understand a lot of schools still rely on traditional labour-intensive paper-based processes.

Why automate your school’s account payable process?
