Future-proof Your AP for Better Workplace Efficiency.

Today’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO) faces numerous challenges, from managing operating costs and employee turnover to improving workplace productivity and keeping up with the competition. In the digital era, spending choices for employees abound, making it harder to manage costs, cash flow and the bottom line. Financial leaders are looking to new user-friendly, business-ready Invoice solutions to make it easier.

One of the businesses interviewed discusses how automating with Concur Invoice improved its AP processes:

"There definitely is a change since implementing Concur Invoice. Employees are more productive and happy and costs have gone done, and from a fraud standpoint, we don’t have to rely on a squiggled signature on a piece of paper. This way, we know that the right person is approving the invoice. SAP Concur has enabled 100% compliance because it ensures that the right person is providing the signature for approvals."

As noted in the IDC white paper, the organizations are projected to achieve annual benefits worth $775,401 per organization ($15,418 per 1,000 invoices) and a return on investment of 505%. Those savings, efficiencies, and productivity gains are phenomenal.
