Why Lean Manufacturing Demands Intelligent AP Automation

In manufacturing, the production line is continually analyzed and altered in order to maximize employee talents, reduce time spent on menial tasks, eliminate the waste of raw materials, and mitigate duplicative efforts. While these elements are essential to a streamlined production process, most manufacturing organizations overlook applying them to their business processes to take efficiency to the next level.

The accounting process is the lifeblood of every manufacturing organization and deserves to be treated with the same priority placed on contributors to the production line. In this article, you'll learn how accounts payable (AP) automation technology can complement the lean manufacturing process by:
  • Eliminating waste;
  • Optimizing AP workflow to ensure that tasks and responsibilities are clearly defined and executed among the team;
  • Affording organizations intelligent automation opportunities through integration with the organization’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.
