Selecting the Right E-Payables Solution

Aberdeen Group's Latest Study Offers Advice on Evaluating and Prioritizing Options for Achieving True Accounts Payable Optimization

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - November 9, 2010) -  Aberdeen Group, a Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS) announced the publication of its latest invoicing and payments study, The E-Payables Solution Selection Report: A Buyer's Guide to Accounts Payable Optimization. Drawing on the responses of over three hundred finance professionals, this report reviews the options companies have to improve A/P performance, and offers advice on what questions to ask to find the solutions that best fit their needs.

"Cost reduction efforts have taken center stage in enterprises across industries and revenue categories," said Scott Pezza, senior associate, Aberdeen. "We have found that along with a general difficulty in working with paper-based documents, cost pressure leads the list of factors driving organizations to focus on improving payables performance, whether the targeted area is front-end receipt and approval or back-end payments."

This study outlines the various approaches enterprises have taken to increase efficiency and lower costs in their accounts payable operations. Its aim is to provide insight into what others have experienced, what challenges they have faced, and where they have seen the greatest possibility for improvement.
