Accounts Payable Automation Systems 


Streamline Your Business Processes

Your accounts payable department plays a pivotal role in providing accurate cash forecasts by ensuring only invoices that are legitimate and accurate are paid efficiently. If you’ve been struggling with how to improve the accounts payable process, Vanguard Systems has your answer. Vanguard Systems offers accounts payable software systems to streamline and simplify your AP process by eliminating data entry, manual approval processes, and filing, thereby freeing knowledgeable workers to focus on core initiatives


What Is AP Automation?

Accounts Payable Automation is a way to manage all your invoice payment and related accounts payable transactions electronically. However, Vanguard Systems’ account payable automation is more than just a paperless accounts payable system. It’s a way to eliminate unnecessary processes, to create a central repository for documents and to handle all tasks that don’t absolutely need human intervention digitally, saving you an untold amount of manpower and time.



How Does Vanguard Systems Accounts Payable Automation Software Work?

Right now, your business may use paper invoices, paper work orders and other paper records. Even if these records eventually find their way into a computer, requiring that staff members repeatedly key data, monitor and approve such paperwork takes entirely too much time, and takes your employees away from more important work they could be doing. With Vanguard Systems’ accounts payable workflow software, almost all of this process is automated and touchless.  Emailed invoices or hard copy invoices are loaded into the system and the software takes over invoice data extraction, determining what actions need to take place to only pay legitimate bills. Matching invoices with purchasing and receiving data, routing expense invoices for approval based on a custom defined approval matrix, and providing a quick and easy means to edit GL distribution… only contacting AP process owners when absolutely necessary to resolve a discrepancy. And Vanguard’s automated accounts payable solutions are platform-agnostic, which means no matter what your current financial applications or account management systems are now, our system can integrate with yours, possibly marrying disparate business application data and creating an easy-to-locate repository for data that you can access in real-time to drastically reduce inefficiency in your system.
