2017 was the year the market said to CEOs – go big or go home.
Everything exploded: Stock growth, M&A deal values, Bitcoin, and digital transformation investments, among others.
Companies that heeded the call of digital transformation have reaped the rewards. Platform companies like Amazon, Google, and PayPal have outpaced the market. Enterprises that streamlined both front and back-end processes are achieving an average 55% growth in gross margins over a three-year period. And who knows what 2018 will bring?
Companies are connecting things with sensors to gain new insights into performance, using edge computing to process vast torrents of real-time data, and leveraging analytics and machine learning to make sense of it all. And AI is of rising importance, automating processes and enhancing customer service.
Today, AR functions are staffed by hard-working, talented people. However, the function has more in common with the 1950s than 2018, with paper-based invoicing processes and snail mail delivery, low transparency into customer risk and payment, and phone-based collection procedures.
And here’s a head-scratcher: The U.S. lags Europe and South America when it comes to online invoicing and payments
It doesn’t have to be that way. Companies that adopt e-Invoicing now can support the C-Suite’s ambition to drive digital transformation forward. Get our POV to learn why you should automate AR in 2018.
All this would be laughable, except that slow, manual AR processes have the potential to slow or even crush your digital progress.
Don’t let old-fashioned AR processes bog down your digital transformation efforts. Automate invoicing – and reap cost savings you can put to work.
