Invoice Authorization Software in Procurement

Invoice Authorization software, also known as invoice Approval software, and Payment Authorization, and AP Authorization, is software used in procurement processes that route incoming invoices for approval prior to payment. The approval processes are sometimes used as a substitute for receiving, and order matching.

The best PO and procurement systems have invoice authorization. When combined together, they are alternatively called procure to pay and AP Automation systems.

Example Usage

"Janet, the audit trail shows the invoice went out to Mark since he never marked that he received it. It looks like Mark is still sitting on it."

One of Aestiva's strength is its ability to work with what the customer needs to keep in place and augment it with our technology to gain the advantages of automation.
