As businesses grow, they tend to encounter growing pains. For BlumShapiro, New England’s largest business advisory firm, this involved an increasing volume of invoices. As the firm continued to grow through several acquisitions, their manual processes were becoming increasingly expensive and inefficient. Manually searching for misplaced invoices and handling paper documents proved to be one aspect of BlumShapiro that did not scale well.
As a business firm that provides accounting and business consulting services, it was critical for BlumShapiro to automate and streamline their own AP processes. The solution? Accounts Payable Automation.
“…they were able to reduce their invoice processing time by 40%” According to Martine Rheaume, the Assistant Controller at BlumShapiro, they were able to reduce their invoice processing time by 40% by automating their AP processes.
Having invoices routed directly into a workflow has eliminated the need to search for lost invoices and has streamlined their invoice reviewing and approval processes.
