Sage Certified PaperLess Accounts Payable Departments. The top choice of CFOs to automate invoice processing and invoice approvals.Getting invoices approved is one of the most common tasks that Accounts Teams need to perform. However, for CFOs approving invoices with Sage is not always such a straightforward process as one might think.

Many companies are still sending paper invoices across the office for approval. Others, simply send invoices via email requesting approval. In either cases, the end result is a real struggle to keep control over invoice authorisation processes and to ensure invoices are approved on time.

Another consequence of this old-fashioned way of sending invoices on flow is that many times invoices get lost. Since accounts teams do not have a way to keep track of all invoices out there pending approval, they might not even realise that such invoices were lost.
