Accounts Payable Software

Accounts payable software (also called invoice processing, p2p, procure to pay or purchase to pay software) automates invoice processing. Since invoices submitted through Electronic Data Interchanges (EDI) can be processed by simple, rules based systems, we will focus on software that can process invoices shared outside of EDIs.

Accounts payable process (also called invoice processing) includes

  • extracting data from invoices. We explained document capture in detail here. Invoices are a type of semi-structured document
  • performing validations as determined by the jurisdiction and the company's internal compliance rules
  • in case of physical good purchases: matching invoices with goods received
  • in case of service purchases: ensuring that services were indeed received
  • creating the necessary accounting entities

To be categorized as an accounts payable software a product must be able to

  • automatically extract data from invoice images in various formats.
  • perform the necessary validations and create the necessary accounting entities
  • How are vendors scored in this category?

    Invoice extraction performance is a key metric for these solutions. We have run a benchmark on the free trial/community edition software. In addition, we asked our clients for similar benchmarks.

    • The vertical (Y) axis is a normalized measure of correctly extracted fields per invoice.
    • The horizontal (X) axis is a normalized measure of extraction accuracy.
