These processes (such as purchasing, accounts payable and travel and entertainment) are typically highly manual, with few controls and no end-to-end process view. Making payments efficiently cost-effectively and surely is pivotal to every well-managed finance function. For this purpose, we need to control corporate spending. Manual purchasing processes are slow, time consuming and often lead to supplier account problems, over-budget spending and an ever-growing number of suppliers.
