Reduce costs. Reduce Risk. Increase efficiency. 
All through accounts payable automation

While how you educate might be innovating, a lot of school processes – especially when it comes to accounts – still rely on traditional paper-based processes. By automating your accounts payable process, you can streamline how you work and unlock true benefits that come from digitalisation.

Why automate your school’s account payable process?

Automating your accounts payable process is more than simply optimising workflows. You gain very real business benefits, including a fit for purpose solution that can integrate where and how you need it to.

Removing the paper risk

We understand there are still a lot of traditional paper processes. However, with paper comes risks – from compromising student data and limited reporting capabilities, to manual processing errors and delays. By reviewing your process from end-to-end and integrating automation, you uncover opportunities to:

  • Improve your cash management with easier and more accurate reporting
  • Reduce manual tasks, errors and the need for human intervention
  • Create efficiencies through optimised workflows and existing system integration (such as with your school management system)
  • Increase staff engagement and productivity
  • Reduce invoice handling and processing costs
  • Better store, manage, access and retrieve data
  • Enhance your data security, through secure cloud document management
  • Streamline how you process payments, approvals and vendors
