The AP automation solution is very flexible and full-featured, accommodating recurring invoices and support for pre-defined payment plans.

“This partnership allows Accolent ERP customers to maximize their AP efficiency,” said Ann Grace, ADS Solutions Director of Marketing. “With Basware and Accolent ERP, customers can automate their entire AP process flow, saving considerable amounts of time and money. Our customers also gain access to Basware’s business commerce network which connects them to over one million companies across 100 countries, and links them to more than 200 interoperability partners.”
