Before Finexio

The Challenges

When accounts payable processes were assessed, it became clear traditional processes like paying with paper checks presented an opportunity for modernization.

Outdated Software

A new focus was needed on creating efficiencies via updating financial software.

Paper Check Dependency

Accounts Payable was mired in traditional payment methods, including heavy paper check usage.

Costly Accounts Payable Processes

It was clear that savings were within reach—but the methods to get them were unclear.

With Finexio
