Breaking Down Business Spend Hurdles  biggest spend hurdles bulleted items business spend management

Inefficient expenditure management can significantly hamper your organisation’s growth. According to an Ardent Partners report, prominent business spend hurdles include delayed invoice/payment approvals, overly high expectations, excessive paperwork, manual B2B payments, and late supplier payments.

These issues often stem from manual processes that promote administrative bureaucracy and data errors, hampering the report cadence. Without automation, these problems persist, leading to unnecessary delays in information approval and late payments. This, in turn, can strain relationships with suppliers and employees. 

The Blueprint for Best-in-Class Business Spend 

By adopting effective spend management practices, organisations can overcome these hurdles. The aim is to have a clear approval process, considering various transaction types, alongside complex approval workflows.

By leveraging automation, businesses can improve efficiency, work smarter, and enjoy substantial time gains. The contrast between manual and automated processes, supported by solid internal policies and procedures, is stark. As you streamline and automate your processes, your business starts achieving best-in-class results.

The Essentials of Good Business Spend Management essentials of good business spend management

Effective business spend governance entails establishing clear spend management policies, defining roles and responsibilities, streamlining approval processes, and developing a comprehensive budgeting process. This involves automating invoice processing, approvals, reporting, and payments, using software like ProSpend. 

Additionally, ensure timely staff payments and supply payments. This includes setting clear payment terms, monitoring payment processing times, and fulfilling payments within the agreed-upon timeframes. 

Digitisation: A Key Catalyst for Business Efficiency

The strategic value of business spend has increased significantly over the years, and the trend shows no signs of slowing down. Digitisation plays a key role in this evolution, with automation and digital transformation becoming primary drivers for collaboration, fostering an innovation-ready culture, and improving stakeholder relationships.

Digitisation also impacts Accounts Payable processes. With automation, AP processes become more efficient, reducing mundane data entry tasks and shifting the focus towards analytical and soft skills. This empowers your staff to contribute more significantly to business growth and improvement. 

The Downside of Ignoring Best Practices

Ignoring best practices in business spend management can lead to increased costs, risk of fraud, reduced profitability, lower productivity, reduced transparency, and missed opportunities. A lack of automation not only results in inefficiencies but can also significantly impact your financial reporting quality, profitability, and opportunities to capture early payment discounts.
