The Everyday Difference Invoice Automation Makes

Invoice automation delivers huge efficiencies and benefits for your business.

 

But it also makes a huge difference to the everyday lives of your team, as well as the people in the rest of business.

 

Take the experiences of Concur Invoice user Atech Support as an example. Finance Director Andrew Simcock reports:

 

“Concur Invoice is probably saving the finance team 2.5 hours a day, which is fantastic. The finance team love it and wouldn’t want to go back. One team member has jokingly said they’d leave if they had to go back to the paper-based process. For the senior management, who get to use the app out and about, it’s much easier for them. For the owners, they get more visibility, which they’re really happy with.”
