Want to become a master of Accounts Payable? We’ve been working hard to tell the world about PIQNIC’s accounts payable automation capabilities over the last few months. We’re excited about the new clients that have come on board - we’ll be telling you more about them over the coming months. But for now, we asked David, an accounts payable manager, why he hasn’t started automating his accounts payable. 

David’s doubts about automating accounts payable

David is an accounts payable manager for a large company, who battles an avalanche of invoices and payments every day. But alas, manual processes have him feeling like a medieval scribe in a digital world. David's nightmares include late payments, errors that would make his high school math teacher cringe, and vendor relationships that are hanging by a thread. David’s team have brought up the possibility of automation, but he has been less than enthusiastic. He’s been doing this job for many years, in the same way, and he thinks that moving to a new system will create challenges that he wants PIQNIC to address.

Can he break free from this accounts payable chaos? You betcha! Let's dive into David's doubts and see how PIQNIC saves the day.

David’s doubts about automating accounts payable

David is concerned about a lack of control over the accounts payable process and maintaining vendor relationships. He thinks that upfront costs, disruption during implementation, and extensive training pose challenges. David is worried that the system may be too complex and that his team would have a steep learning curve while still performing their jobs to the high standards his company expects. For David, it is important that customisation must align perfectly with his unique business requirements. Finally, David is concerned about the security of sensitive financial information and potential breaches.
