Start your journey towards a better procure-to-pay process

ApprovalPlus Procure-to-Pay software frees your accounts payables department from the time consuming and manual tasks traditionally associated with matching purchase orders to invoices. Using automated workflows, and intelligent checks and controls, invoices are processed more quickly, and the potential for fraud reduced. The invoice approval and purchase order management process is reduced from days to minutes, so it’s easier to track and reconcile organisational spending.

ApprovalPlus currently integrates with 26 different ERP or finance systems including JD Edwards, NetSuite, Microsoft, SAP solutions, Pronto, BPCS, and more.

Tighten the controls on organisational spending

Set delegated authorities per business unit, authorise purchases before ordering, manage project budgets and allow for segregation of duties

Enhance your audit compliance

Track who has authorised transactions, monitor changes in authority, ensure each invoice has passed through a controlled process rather than a random check on transactions.

Reduce administrative time and cost by 25%

Say goodbye to manual paperwork with automatic three-way matching of invoices to purchase orders, coding, approvals and routing to your finance team for payment.

Streamline your invoice approval and purchase order processes

Slash invoice approval times and never lose a document again. With automated workflows, you’ll get faster purchase order approval, and orders are electronically sent to suppliers.

Digitise your documents

Forget storage boxes, manual filing and costly archiving when you store your invoices and related documents online. You’ll save time and money, and have easy on-demand access to your information.

What does the procure-to-pay process look like with ApprovalPlus?

  • Raise a purchase order: Just select the catalogue item in ApprovalPlus with correct price and account codes
  • Send a purchase order: ApprovalPlus electronically dispatches the purchase order to the supplier or vendor
  • Receive an invoice: The invoice is scanned into ApprovalPlus where the automated invoice processing matches it to the purchase order, then codes, approves and sends it to your finance system for payment
