Supplier efficiency & collaboration

Make your company easy
to do business with

To avoid procurement delays, companies need to build strong supplier partnerships, which means on-time payments, quick dispute resolution and real-time communication. Buyers need to improve their attractiveness by building loyalty, developing supplier relationships and improving economic performance.

Esker’s Account Payable automation software provides a win-win situation for both sides.

  • Resolve issues quickly

Risk management

Manage company cash from any location

Even though modernizing AP has been imperative for years, the slow adoption of automation put many organizations in a highly vulnerable position if a business disruption occurs — late or missed payments, payment fraud attacks, and difficulty staying compliant. Esker’s AP automation software minimizes these risks and enhances your company control by helping you:

  • Fight against APP fraud

    Sis ID integration

    Esker has partnered with French FinTech Sis ID to fight against authorized push payment (APP) fraud. Fully integrated with Esker’s S2P suite, Sis ID’s Sis Inside solution adds an anti-fraud shield to the user experience. Control maverick spend, reduce risks and bring visibility into spend.

  • Budgetary control, plus quick & easy approvals

    Basic and complex workflow handling

    New records are submitted to different users based on their profiles. Vendor-initiated changes trigger new approvals, reducing risk and protecting reputation.

  • Control your payments and alleviate operational costs

    The AP Specialist dashboard

    Displays the monetary value of potential late fees for invoices approaching their due date. Paying suppliers on time not only strengthens relationships with them but also helps companies reduce financial risks. Automatically match PO invoices with POs to ensure that there are no inconsistencies or risks of fraud.

  • Ensuring tax compliance

    Esker’s AP e-invoicing solution

    Delivers compliant, paperless invoice processing on a global scale. Keeping up with changing regulations is tricky and managing suppliers across borders adds even more complexity. Archived invoices are kept secure for as long as the local laws dictate.

Work smart, work mobile

Esker’s mobile application, Esker Anywhere, delivers faster invoice processing, improved efficiency, and on-the-road accessibility for managers who review and approve spend requests or supplier invoices prior to payment.

Thanks to mobile dashboards and metrics, managers can monitor their KPIs and business trends while on the go. The app is available for free from the Apple App Store® and Google Play. Once installed, users can connect to the application to view invoices pending approval.

"Even if somebody is out of the office, invoice approvals can be done anytime, anywhere with Esker's mobile application."​
