What Does AI-based Invoice Processing Look Like?

AI-based invoice processing dramatically reduces the cost and turnaround time of handling invoices. This is achieved through:

  • Invoice data capture: AI solutions can scan and upload invoices, converting them into a machine-readable format.
  • Data Extraction: Using ML and Natural Language Processing (NLP), the AI extracts critical details from the invoice, such as the invoice number, vendor information, date, total amount, and itemized charges.
  • Data Validation: The AI then compares the extracted data against purchase order details to ensure accuracy and consistency.
  • Manual Intervention and Learning: If there are discrepancies, the invoice is flagged for manual review, which also serves as a learning opportunity for the AI to enhance its accuracy over time.
  • Approval Routing: After validation, the invoice is sent for approval to the appropriate individuals or departments, maintaining process transparency and control.
  • Payment Processing: Finally, once approved, the invoice is processed for payment according to the terms and business rules, ensuring timely payments and maintaining healthy vendor relationships.

This streamlined process leverages AI to make invoice processing more efficient, accurate, and cost-effective.

Downside of using AI-based technology for invoice processing

AI has the potential to significantly transform accounts payable (AP) processes but faces hurdles like data security concerns, risk of job loss, high implementation costs, and complexities. Challenges such as biases in training data and issues with processing non-standard invoices might also reduce its effectiveness in AP tasks.

Overall, companies that are not automating their invoice processing are overlooking a huge opportunity to maximise workflow efficiency, mitigate risk, and ensure greater control across their global finance operations.
