6 Most Important Metrics to a Winning Business Case for AP Automation

APP2P17_Canon_Whitepaper_CoverIf the stubbornly high number of organizations that process invoices in a manual or semi-automated environment has proven anything, it’s that many AP and P2P leaders still struggle to articulate the value of automation and justify the expense and time to senior management.

Many AP and P2P professionals helplessly watch as their automation budgets are slashed, or their automation projects are rejected or postponed.

AP and P2P professionals cite numerous barriers to full automation, including:

  • A lack of capital budget
  • Too many competing priorities
  • A lack of IT and/or departmental resources
  • No senior-level champion

But the primary reason that many AP and P2P departments have not automated their processes is that they do not know how to build a convincing business case for automation.

IOFM’s latest white paper uses new benchmark data to uncover the six areas where automation pays the biggest dividends.  Focusing on these areas in your business case is sure to win senior management approval for deploying an automated AP or P2P solution.
