There are many improvements retailers can make to improve operational efficiency. One area that is often overlooked but has significant impact to a retailer’s margin is invoice reconciliation. Many companies’ procure to pay process involves manual 3 way match between invoices, purchase orders and receipts. Leading companies automate this process and use work flow engines to quickly resolve the issue and process the correct payment at the right time. If discrepancies are not found and correctly resolved, your bottom line will be impacted. Balances integrates to your financial systems to close the loop on the procure to pay process. Invoices are matched or resolved and then automatically posted to the financial system.
Properly managing the P2P cycle in a fast paced, high volume retail environment with efficient use of labor hours is a key element to your overall profitability.
