SaaS and Cloud for AP
Change is a constant in the business world. New business units. International growth. Acquisitions. For an organisation's software solutions to keep up, it needs to be flexible and robust enough to adapt as a company evolves. When choosing an expense management solution, how can organisations ensure that it will be able to adapt to the changing tides?
Rapid invoice approval is critical for effective cash flow and to maintain effective visibility into the accounts payable process. They kind of technology you use to access this data could play a major factor in your company's ability to deliver this insight.
Product capabilities and functionality are almost top of any company’s list of priorities when assessing software solutions. However, any organisation that’s looking to deploy a software solution across the enterprise needs to understand that the relationship with the solution provider can be just as critical for long-term success as the product itself.
We’re delighted to have been listed by respected technology analyst firm IDC as a “Leader” in its Travel and Expense MarketScape, validating our position in the global expense management industry.
One of the benefits that many ERP vendors claim is that they offer a broad range of modules in addition to the core functionality of the solution. However, how do these modules stand up to best-of-breed solutions?
As essential end-user features are in the selection of an expense management solution, any front-end benefits are meaningless if the solution doesn’t easily integrate into your tech stack, introduces security vulnerabilities for your network and your users’ data, or simply isn’t available when you need it to be.
One of the most critical questions when choosing an enterprise technology provider is “will we be a good match?” This isn’t just in terms of the vendor’s solution, and how its solution integrates with your infrastructure, but also if the two organisations mesh well together. Your decision needs to address a wide variety of factors beyond “can it do what we need it to do?” and “does it offer good value?” You also need to consider factors ranging from cultural fit to where you are size-wise on your vendor’s customer roster.
