Manual PO invoice matching can cost thousands (if not millions) in errors and eat up hundreds of staffing hours

You’re probably paying for items that never arrived. You’re missing out on early payment discounts. Your staff is spending countless hours on manual invoice reconciliation. The good news? The SPS Commerce Community solution streamlines the 3-way match process* by automating data exchange with your suppliers.

*3-way matching is the process of matching an invoice against what was ordered and what was received before issuing a payment.

Manual PO invoice matching takes a toll

When your business was smaller, it was easier to reconcile your purchase orders against your invoices. But as your business has grown, you’ve started to notice a spike in costly human errors and mistakes from things like:

r

Slowdowns in reconciling processes lead to missed early payment discounts

r

The need to have dedicated staff to track down order and shipping documentation, and compare them manually

r

Running out of time to check everything, so you pay for the wrong quantity, price or shipping costs
