Improve cash flow forecasts with automation

Discover smarter spending opportunities when you integrate your AP solutions

Get a more accurate view of your spending and accruals

For CFOs, the ability to make accurate cash flow forecasts is pivotal to business planning and growth. Because money moves quickly within an active business, you need cash available to take advantage of opportunities to expand, make better decisions or make the best investments. Simply put, without effective cash flow management, your organisation may miss out on crucial opportunities for growth. SAP Concur can help you gain accurate, near-real-time visibility into all spend and financial data through intuitive cash flow forecasting software. Whether this is expenses, business travel, or invoices.

  • Clearing invoices and expenses faster for a more accurate view of available cash
  • Integrating near-real-time data into a complete picture of cash management across your business
  • Forecast cash flow and provide alerts and insights to keep spending aligned with business goals

A faster invoice process means a more accurate view of profit and loss

How does speed impact your ability to assess the state of your business? When you automate your accounts payable processes, you can clear invoices and expenses faster. The more accurate and up-to-date your understanding of what you owe, and when you owe it, the better your ability to make financial forecasts and strategic decisions about spending and new investments.

Key Questions to ask of Invoice Solution Providers

If you’re considering an automated invoicing solution, it can be tough to wade through the options. To find a solution that will best serve your business needs in the long term, you need to clarify how the solution works with and adds value to your current AP processes. Ask these questions:

How accurate is your optical character recognition (OCR) technology?
Can I easily see the status of outstanding invoices?
Can this solution fit my current invoicing process?
Is there a mobile app to process payments on the go?
How will my AP data move into my ERP or financial system?
