To fulfill its expanding strategic role, the Finance Area must always seek to increase efficiency in its operations. The Accounts Payable (AP) function is an area that in the past has consumed a lot of resources within the department. With Techedge’s Vendor Invoice Management solution, powered by SAP’s ECM suite, the finance area can increase efficiency, reduce costs, make better use of cash discounts, and focus more resources on higher value strategic responsibilities.
