Businesses for profit and not for profit need to generate healthy cash flow to thrive and grow.  A significant part of this is the effective management of the outflow of money - Invoice Management for Accounts Payable.  Good invoice management is vital to ensure free cash flow. About 82% of SMBs experienced cash flow problems, with about 29% running out of cash resulting in business failure.  Research from Everest Group found that a business with nonautomated invoicing pays an average of $10 per invoice, while automated invoicing averages only $2.07 per invoice.  Manual invoicing costs 5x more for your business than an automated process.
An automated process improves cash flow while saving cost and staff time, increased security while reducing the friction and stress associated with the accounts payable process.  Significant frustration and time is wasted on manual generation of cheques and getting the appropriate person, or people in a two signature approval situation, to sign cheques to be mailed out.  An automated process, like the one in Plooto, eliminates the stress and gets the required approval immediately electronically in front of the approver.
