EXFLOW® for Microsoft Dynamics AX
Choose profitability over administration – Automate your Accounts Payable Processes!
The cost of manually processing a supplier invoice is estimated to be EUR 15-50, depending on the type of business and current automation initiative. By automating your Accounts Payable, you can reduce your annual administrative costs by up to 50% per invoice.
This frees up resources in the finance department and provides better visibility over costs, as well as reducing interest charges. It also provides a more reliable and efficient workflow, makes budget work easier and takes on a more GREEN approach by reducing paper consumption.

Integrations are costly
According to an article in Computer Sweden published on 8 April 2011, (based on a survey undertaken by Radar Group), system integration expenditures can reach up to € 15,000 per year for each stand-alone application integrated instead of built into the ERP system. (Read the full article here >>) While it’s difficult to calculate exact costs, one thing is undeniable – system integration is extremely expensive to maintain. Add to this the delays in information caused by databases being synchronised, operational downtime resulting from systems being updated, increased support requirements and increased license costs, etc. In other words, a major increase in Total Cost of Ownership.
