AccountsIQ, the cloud accounting pioneer, has launched AP Inbox, a paperless invoice capture service which will be deployed to all customers as an extension to its Accounts Payable features.
The new service is a response to customer feedback says Chief Product Officer, Russell Cooper:
“Automating manual tasks, such as supplier invoice processing, is a major time saver for finance teams. Our customer research was clear; finance managers recognise the benefits of Accounts Payable automation but can be put off by the cost and complexity of current offers in the market. AccountsIQ’s new AP Inbox is an integrated automation service.”
AP Inbox will be made available to all AccountsIQ customers at no extra cost. We believe that this is the first time an accounting software vendor has deployed such functionality, for free, as part of core module capabilities. Others have provided add-ons by acquisition or partnering.
“As companies grow, finance teams without digital document management systems can struggle to deal with the volume of supplier invoice paperwork,” says Russell. “Manually organising, copying, filing, and retrieving invoices is time consuming, repetitive work, and errors and delays are inevitable. AccountsIQ’s AP Inbox helps them automate and go paperless.”
How AP Inbox works
PDF invoices are routed to a dedicated email address per company. AccountsIQ’s platform uses OCR technology to read and extract the relevant data from the invoices and generates transactions in the new inbox. The finance team can then quickly and easily access the inbox to validate and submit the invoice for approval or posting.
AccountsIQ already integrates with several AP automation providers through its open API structure. However, as Russell notes,
“Our customers told us they wanted to ‘dip their toe’ into AP automation without any added cost, commitment or process change requirements. Our AP Inbox service is not designed to compete with the mainstream AP automation solution providers; it’s a new offering that complements our award-winning cloud accounting software and helps make our customers’ lives easier.”
