Accounts Payable Slow to Adopt Paperless Invoicing

aberlilBusinesses could save money and decrease environmental impact by modernizing their accounts payable departments, which lag other business departments in reducing environmental impact.

About 83 percent of A/P departments are managing about the same amount of paper invoices as they did four years ago. Meanwhile, about 68 percent of A/P departments are processing the same amount of manual payments as they did four years ago, according to the “E-payables Benchmarking 2009: Accounts Payable Rising” study from the Aberdeen Group.

Ironically, despite the lack of a move to paperless invoicing, about 70 percent of A/P departments report being under “high” pressure to reduce costs (see above chart).

Here is a look at how best-in-class A/P departments are outpacing their peers in use of processes, organization, knowledge and technology.

    I am not sure how using less paper and more computer technology is better for the environment. Since when is it more environmentally friendly to strip mine a piece of land rather than convert it to a working forest. Supply follows demand.
