When a line item such as the VAT number doesnt add up on an invoice the AP team will need to find the error and correct it manually to be able to process the invoice. This is very time consuming and can cause delays in paying the invoice. Investing in IMS can help to reduce the amount of time the discrepancy can take to rectify by flagging invoices that have any mistakes and making sure the invoice isnt processed until it has been corrected.

Electronic invoices provide an important means of reducing the costs of processing sending distributing and maintaining invoices resulting in a simplification of administrative procedures and a considerable reduction in the amount of time and space consumed as the invoices are transmitted through telematic means accomplished by applying technical certification mechanisms (electronic signatures) which guarantee the basic elements required in any invoice (the authenticity of its origin and integrity of its content) and allow them to be maintained in digital format which affords immediate access to them at any given moment.

A Proforma invoice is an invoice provided by a supplier in advance of providing the goods or service. A quotation in the form of an invoice prepared by the seller that details items which would appear on a commercial invoice if an order results. It is more of a customs declaration form used in international trade that describes the parties involved in the shipping transaction the goods being transported and the value of the goods. It is the primary document to declare value for customs. It is not a true invoice because the seller does not record a pro forma invoice as an accounts receivable and the buyer does not record a pro forma invoice as an accounts payable.

Another outcome is an increase in efficiency; the AP department can instantly find an invoice without having to waste time chasing the business users. With approximately 70% of the invoices now matching the PO immediately a considerable amount of invoices only require scanning after which the process is entirely automated. This efficiency has directly resulted in a reduction in the number of people required in the Accounts Payable department; before the system was installed the team consisted of 13 people and there have been reductions in headcount as the AP manager substantiates:
