As distribution enterprises evolve, workflow processes begin to overlap, creating inefficiencies, as process owners change and authorization checkpoints blur. The result can often be documentation bottlenecks, leading to sluggish customer response, rising cost and regulatory compliance risk. How much time to you spend comparing supplier invoices with purchase orders? Are authorizations traceable throughout your organization and supply chain? Is your AP department growing just to keep pace with the volume of documents? Does the thought of a monthly or yearly audit make you more than a little bit uncomfortable?
