Reconciling supplier statements also ensures profits are maximised by never missing credit notes, resolving queries faster to increase early payment discounts and reducing the risk of over-payments, miss-postings and duplicates. What if you could log-in to a website where all your statements would be reconciled and you just manage the exceptions? Or take it to the next step by giving suppliers access to reconcile their own statements, view the status of their invoices and exchange messages with Accounts Payable securely via the web. Start transforming the role of Accounts Payable now by booking a live demo to see it working and find out how to take advantage of our 4-week trial.
