Accounts payable gets a bad rep as being a cost centre. But we’re here to tell you — it’s not you, it’s the process. Esker’s Accounts Payable automation software allows businesses to eliminate the manual pains of traditional AP invoice processing thanks to intelligent capture, touchless processing and electronic workflow capabilities. The end result? A simpler, more efficient way to manage cash flow and generate new revenue.

Case study
Ruralco processes AP invoices 50% faster with automation.
“Esker was miles better than the competition. And it was easy to set up, with a one-week on-site training. And it is so easy to use, a child could go in there, get started and within an hour have it up and running and processing invoices. I'm not kidding”
Oliver O'Neill | Group CFO | Ruralco

Empower your team with actionable data.

Intelligent dashboards with packaged KPIs allow accounts payable workflow users to customise what AP-related metrics are displayed on their interface. This allows every action — from performing daily tasks to monitoring budgets — to be more strategic and value-added.
