Your AP software system likely contains a host of features to prevent duplicate payments or overpayments–but we never recommend relying on software alone to catch every error. As we like to say: your AP software is only as smart as your staff. The Audit Group’s Natalie Berkley explains a recent example in which our client had been paying the same vendor twice because of a mistake in the vendor master.
Cleansing and maintaining your vendor list is the best way to prevent duplicate payments like this, but taking the time to do so is not always easy for an AP department. Let The Audit Group’s consultants help. We’ll work with your team to optimize the vendor master and recover lost funds–without costing your team any productivity.
