For the past few decades, Finance or Human Capital leaders have been under pressure to reduce cost and improve profitability and employee satisfaction. Most work in enterprises today is still being performed manually, leveraging multiple systems ERP, Cloud, homegrown system… Maintaining system is not sufficient now you need to integrate them from on-premise to Cloud!  Today the costs have reached a point where the benefits of moving labor time zones away simply don’t equal the investment.

This is the Third in our Series on Electronic Invoicing.

Last week we talked about Big Savings with EIPP. This week, we’ll focus on the Accelerated Returns on Investment (ROI) of Implementing an Electronic Invoicing Presentment and Payment (EIPP) Solution using two models proposed by Ataway.

The flexible nature of Electronic Invoicing allows for a phased approach to move from paper to electronic invoicing, as we noted in the previous post. EIPP provides a way to centralize invoices and increase visibility for buyers and suppliers. Electronic Invoicing also improves cash flow information, allowing it to be retrieved immediately. This will ease business decisions and allow for a more agile trading model. If your organization has PeopleSoft Financials, we encourage you to look at the eSettlements and Financial Gateway parts of Cash Management to leverage the full EIPP Solution. However, some obstacles may still get in the way, such as time, supplier participation and security. Of course, this raises an obvious question: How can Organizations successfully achieve a fast ROI when implementing an EIPP solution?

So what are some appropriate elements needed to calculate ROI?
