By turning a machine-readable EDI invoice into a human-readable version, you can now apply standard AP processes to EDI invoices as well.

How does Esker’s Accounts Payable solution increase employee productivity?

It’s not uncommon for AP staff members to spend much of their time on manual tasks (e.g., entering invoice data into the ERP, hunting down approvals, printing and collecting documents, etc.). Esker’s AI-driven AP automation solution takes care of all those repetitive, low-value admin activities so you don’t have to. As a result, your team is free to focus on more strategic activities that impact cash management and your supplier relationships.

Users of Esker’s AP solution can expect to see a number of transformational benefits following go-live. From an operational standpoint, accounts payable automation often translates to faster invoice processing times, lower costs, simplified IT environment, and enhanced visibility over invoices and closing procedures (just to name a few). For your customers and staff, it can mean greater collaboration and overall satisfaction. Lastly, for business, Esker’s solution can ultimately lead to more business opportunities, expansion into new markets, and increased fraud prevention.

Does Esker’s Accounts Payable software integrate with all ERPs?

Yes! To date, Esker has over 70 unique ERP or home-grown solutions. Our ERP connectivity suite also provides simultaneous integration with multiple ERPs, which simplifies diverse environments resulting from M&A activity, streamlines onboarding, and supports shared services center initiatives.

Does Esker replace my ERP system?

No! Esker’s automated Accounts Payable solution is not designed to replace ERPs; rather, the solution works alongside whatever system or systems currently in place to fill in the manual gaps most conventional ERPs can’t handle. This helps invoices get processed faster and more accurately, while also helping your company maximise its ERP investment.
