Digital transformation

Optimize Accounts Payable regardless of the ERP life cycle

Digital Transformation should no longer be an option for 21st century companies, it should be a reality. However, the transformation is not only achieved with just the best technology, but it also requires a change that promotes a new way of doing things.

Those processes that are not aligned with the core business objective of the Company and tasks that do not add value should be delegated to specialized third parties.

Challenges and opportunities in the digital transformation of the financial department

In our everyday lives we use services that we take for normal, but they are the result of the digital transformation of the companies that provide them.

I am already reporting VAT via SII ... now what?

Now that we have implemented the Immediate Information Supply (SII) process, we have seen that many shortcomings have arisen in the process of both AP and AR. The tax report, as it was presented on a monthly basis, in many cases by hand, allowed via the consolidation of operations to report without apparent incidents.​

AP AR Outsourcing

Improve operational efficiency through AP and AR Outsourcing

Today, companies manage a complex global ecosystem of suppliers, partners, operators, customers, ... and at the same time process a large number of administrative and regulatory documents. This reality requires agility and efficiency in the management of documentation and invoices, in order to optimize operational efficiency and to avoid a high consumption of resources. However, it is surprising that today, despite the enormous advances in automation and technology, almost 75% of the documentation is processed manually. This situation is obviously very labor intensive and undoubtedly affects the results of the companies.

Cost per Invoice

Outsourcing AP: How much should it cost me to process a Supplier Invoice?

Processing supplier invoices, from receipt to posting and availability for payment, is undoubtedly the process in which more costs are incurred in the financial area. In particular, due to the high exposure to manual labor of the associated activities. But can costs really reduce by an Accounts Payable outsourcing partner? A survey carried out by easyap of financial professionals in Spain found that the cost of processing a supplier invoice is, on average, € 5.7, although there are companies that reach € 15 and € 17 for a single paper invoice, fax or email.

Why paying as late as possible can be reckless.

Getting the most out of the Accounts Payable Department (part I)

Effective management of working capital, defined as current assets minus current liabilities, is one of the oldest practices of financial management. Following this practise the maxim was developed that short-term needs should be financed with short-term cash; and long-term needs should be financed with long-term sources. The underlying goal for the business is therefore essentially to reduce operational risks and costs of financing.
