Accounts Payable processes have historically been some of the most targeted tasks for automation throughout the RPA space.
This is caused by most AP processes focusing on highly rules-based data entry, with the primary inhibiting factor being intake and data extraction from invoices.
Invoices are commonly received to a centralized AP mailbox, which is treated as the intake point for the process.
They are then generally pulled out of this mailbox, organized, and processed manually by an employee or SME into the corresponding system for payment.
With AP Invoice Processing as such a common process for automation, we wanted to walk through how the OpenBots Enterprise Platform, can be used to automate this process.
