Automated Accounts Payable
and Purchasing Solutions

Gain con­trol and insight over your spend

Automat­ing your accounts payable and pur­chas­ing work­flows help teams see what’s beyond the moun­tains of paper in front of them. Emburse offers AP and pur­chas­ing solu­tions that make valu­able insight pos­si­ble, while tam­ing two of finance’s most man­u­al­ly inten­sive processes.

Whether they’re in the office or work­ing remote­ly, automa­tion gives teams wider per­spec­tive and con­trol over orga­ni­za­tion­al spend that lead to cost-sav­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties and oper­a­tional effi­cien­cy. Our solu­tions pro­vide much-need­ed vis­i­bil­i­ty to con­nect your teams for improved col­lab­o­ra­tion for every­one involved.

Enable insight­ful invoice payments

AP teams spend too much of their day putting out fires. Late, incor­rect­ly keyed, dupli­cate invoice issues con­stant­ly fuel reac­tion. Pro­duc­tiv­i­ty chokes at the cost of rework and chas­ing answers. Hero­ic work, yes, but you hired finance pro­fes­sion­als, not firefighters.

An auto­mat­ed solu­tion from the Emburse port­fo­lio clears stacks of invoic­es from the AP team’s desks (and maybe the floor). They emerge as a dif­fer­ent kind of hero — one with the clar­i­ty to know exact­ly where pay­ments go and serve as your ven­dors’ peacekeeper.

Bring order back to ordering

Pur­chas­ing is no stranger to putting out fires, either. A paper-based process involves restrict­ing unap­proved orders, match­ing mys­te­ri­ous invoic­es to deliv­er­ies, cor­rect­ing errors, and more. Hours are burned doing work that could be erased through automation.

The Emburse pur­chas­ing solu­tions return con­trol to the order­ing process. Guess­work van­ish­es through­out the work­flow. Replaced, instead, with total vis­i­bil­i­ty of sub­mit­ted requests and orders received.

Praise from around the globe

“In addition to its flexible features and mobility, the ease of using Chrome River INVOICE [the invoice system] is impressive. The solution is very intuitive. We saw a reduction of over 50% in the time AP spent on processing non-PO invoices.”

-Steve Kelly, Director of Disbursements
University of Pennsylvania Health System

“Our old system was slow, paper-based, and lacked transparency. Upgrading to Chrome River [an automated system] was like upgrading from a bicycle to a Ferrari.”

-Daniel Hill, Manager, Disbursement Services
West Virginia University Foundation

“Paper invoices used to get lost or held up on someone's desk. We were able to move to a more decentralized approach where everyone in the firm that receives vendor invoices is ultimately responsible for getting them entered into Chrome River [the system]. Because Chrome River [the solution] is so easy to use, that was not a difficult undertaking in the least. And our vendors are paid more timely!”

-Karen Keegan, Assistant Controller
Nixon Peabody LLP

“Overall, the PO functionality made approval, tracking, and visibility of expenses more seamless and accurate. We migrated from tracking hardcopies to focusing on value-added activities that we wouldn’t otherwise.”

-Nazir Tarraf, Treasury Associate
