Customers can use APIís Accounts Payable service in conjunction with APIís Pre-Payment Audit for selected invoice types such as:
Utility Bill Payment
The timely processing and payment of utility bills is critical to all companies. One missed payment can result in a significant disruption to the business. It is extremely difficult for companies which have multiple office locations to monitor various rate plans, capture detailed usage and cost data and identify errors in the bill before payment. APIís Utility Bill Payment Service uses advanced technology to ensure utility invoices are correct and paid in a timely manner. This service relieves customers from the responsibility of receiving bills, entering them into a central repository and running comparisons to historical data to identify irregularities and errors.
