G2 Report
AP Automation:
Summer Edition

Stampli is positioned as Leader in the G2 Grid® for AP Automation software and #1 in Usability, Support, Implementation and Results for Summer 2020. 

What is AP Automation?


Companies use accounts payable (AP) automation software to more efficiently manage large volumes of invoices and financial transactions between a company and with suppliers. While most accounting solutions include basic AP-related functionality, many of them do not provide the functionality to effectively manage complex AP processes. Companies choose AP automation software to reduce manual work and bottlenecks— for those with AI-powered solutions — to avoid human errors and empower greater productivity for everyone involved in the P2P process.

How does it help?

This type of software simplifies complex AP activities and helps AP professionals to efficiently manage large volumes of supplier invoices and helps improve supplier relationships. AP automation also improves the efficiency and value delivered by the AP department, and helps with other accounting activities such as financial closing. 

Who uses AP automation software?

• AP professionals and other members of the accounting department responsible for Accounts Payable. 

• Managers and executives who monitor AP activities. 

How are solutions delivered?

AP automation solutions can be delivered as standalone on-premise or cloud-based products or as a part of accounting suites that also include AR automation, billing, and payment processing features. This type of software is integrated with accounting solutions or with accounting modules of ERP systems.

There is so much to like about Stampli — the simplicity, speed of transaction processing, interface and customer service are the best in the industry that I have ever seen. The approval process is also fast and efficient. The implementation (from first phone call/ demo to fully implemented) took less than 48 hours and had zero issues! Our prior A/P provider constantly had issues and system outages… we will never go back.

From the very first conversation with a Stampli representative, I felt valued and was fully confident that we were making the right decision for our company. I would recommend Stampli to anyone and be 100% confident that you would feel exactly the same after use.

What do you dislike?

I can honestly say that I have zero dislikes with regard to Stampli and don’t foresee any coming in the future.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do yourself a huge favor and switch to Stampli immediately!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We implemented the software about a month ago and cut our invoice processing time by over 50% within the first week. It is easier to track late payments, A/P clerk productivity and invoice coding accuracy than ever before.
