So how are Sage users automating invoice approval processes?

With hundreds of documents having to be approved internally across the company, many times with people spread across different locations, CFO’s, Finance Directors and many other Finance Professionals have been looking for a way to streamline the document approval processes, keeping a clear overview of the status of each one of the documents.

For Sage users the preferred choice to keep control over the entire invoice approval process has been PaperLess Document Management for Sage, a Sage Add-on Software that streamlines invoice approval processes with Sage by automating routines since the moment invoices are received until they are approved and posted to Sage.

PaperLess provides Sage users with a secure way to ensure that your purchase invoice approval processes can be monitored and adapted to the way your organisation works. Once the approval process is finished you can make a final confirmation on the transactions and amend any accounting lines in the transaction voucher prior to posting into Sage.

What about if I want to have costs booked in Sage before final approval is given?

You can also easily do that with PaperLess Dispute Approval Method. This will ensure your VAT is registered as early as possible in Sage, giving them a better cash flow situation, whilst ensuring that company costs are booked, but not released for payment in Sage until the last recipient in document flow has approved the invoices.

How can I retrieve invoices and approval history once the approval process is finished?

Well, that is really very easy and what CFOs and many other finance professionals have realised is that they no longer need to spend time on going through emails to see who approved that particular document or why changes were made to the accounting data.

With a live lookup directly from within Sage 50 and Sage 200 accounting lines finance professionals now have access to the entire audit trail of the approval process, together will all the relevant documentation and accounting information.
