Title: Customer Invoices Web Portal – 100% e-Invoicing for SAP: A Guide to Quit Paper
Published by: Esker
Abstract: Most businesses running SAP solutions could adopt e-Invoicing or electronic delivery of customer invoices. The benefits of e-Invoicing are clear: it’s faster, less costly and more reliable than manual invoicing, and it removes the inefficiency of paper from the invoicing process. e-Invoicing addresses a broad range of issues including operational cost control, limitations of built-in capabilities for process automation, mailroom and mail house lack of flexibility and set-up costs, and billing dispute management. By increasing the speed and accuracy of invoicing through document process automation, companies can collect cash faster because invoices are delivered sooner and hence can be processed by customers earlier.
