Why now is the time to adopt Accounts Payable Automation
The global Accounts Payable Automation market will be worth about $4 billion by 2025 according to a study by Adroit research. “The account payable automation solutions simplify the processing of enormous volumes of customer invoices, which can significantly reduce the efforts and time spent by the accountants in collecting payments from their customers,” said Adroit.
