Ease your procurement pains with ApprovalPlus procure-to-pay software


Start your journey towards a better p2p process

ApprovalPlus Procure-to-Pay software frees your accounts payables department from the time consuming and manual tasks traditionally associated with matching purchase orders to invoices. Using automated workflows, and intelligent checks and controls, invoices are processed more quickly, and the potential for fraud reduced. The invoice approval and purchase order management process is reduced from days to minutes, so it’s easier to track and reconcile organisational spending.

ApprovalPlus currently integrates with 26 different ERP or finance systems including JD Edwards, NetSuite, SAP, Microsoft solutions, Pronto, BPCS, and more.

What does the procure-to-pay process look like with ApprovalPlus?


Check out these 3 easy procure-to-pay steps: 

  • Raise a Purchase Order: Just select the catalogue item in ApprovalPlus with correct price and account codes.
  • Send a Purchase Order: ApprovalPlus electronically dispatches the Purchase Order to the supplier or vendor.
  • Receive an Invoice: The invoice is scanned into ApprovalPlus where the automated invoice processing matches it to the Purchase Order, then codes, approves and sends it to your finance system for payment.

“The Council’s target of an eight-day turnaround for invoice approval process prior to implementing ApprovalPlus, has been dramatically reduced to just three days per month."

Graeme Souter, Expenditure Manager, Dunedin City Council
