The average cost to manually process an invoice is more than $8, and approximately 70 percent of this cost is wrapped up in document handling and data entry processes, according to a survey conducted by the International Accounts Payable Professionals. For companies faced with processing thousands of invoices a month, these costs can place a significant drain on a business. Moreover, the inefficiencies inherent in manual invoice processing can lead to data entry errors or late payments that can negatively affect a company's credit standing or customer satisfaction levels.
