Receivables

SAP software provides automated, integrated, and collaborative processes for receivables management, enabling accounting departments to better manage collections and disputes, streamline billing, and lower customer credit risk. As a result, you can decrease the amount of cash and effort tied up in disputes and collections, days sales outstanding, and bad debt write-offs, making better use of cash on hand to fund business operations and new growth opportunities.

Payables

SAP software streamlines invoice management and accounts payables and reduces costs with automated exception handling, validation, and routing of invoices.  Improve automation to accelerate cycle time, strengthen compliance, boost cash returns, and optimize working capital by capturing more early payment discounts. Mitigate risk and empower suppliers with increased visibility and access to accelerated payments.  Collaborate with suppliers to exchange documents electronically for faster and more accurate invoice processing.
