Food and beverage companies may face several challenges
in their accounts payable (AP) process, including:
High volume of invoices
With a large number of suppliers, food and beverage companies may receive a high volume of invoices, leading to increased manual workload.
Complex pricing structures
Food and beverage companies often deal with complex pricing structures, such as volume discounts and promotional pricing, making it challenging to accurately process invoices.
Short payment terms
Many food and beverage suppliers have short payment terms, leading to a high volume of payments to be processed in a short period of time.
The nature of food and beverage products means that they have a limited shelf life, making it important to process invoices and payments quickly to avoid wastage.
Integration with supply chain systems
Food and beverage companies often have complex supply chains, requiring integration between invoicing systems and other systems such as procurement and inventory management.
Food safety regulations
The food and beverage industry is heavily regulated, with strict requirements around traceability and labeling, making it important to have accurate information on invoices and in the AP system.
Automated 3-Way PO Matching with the ability to build in tolerances and business parameters
Companies that use a manual accounts payable (AP) process may face several issues, including:
