Manual vendor payouts: is there a problem?
In general, businesses tend to make several vendor payouts on a monthly basis. Typically, the entire manual vendor payout process is extremely tedious and there can be many problems that arise solely because of the manual work involved. Some of these are:
Considering the number of invoices a business receives in a month, manual data entry is one of the areas exposed to major manual errors. Entering data in a sheet is not only time consuming, but it also comes attached with risks of mishaps. A single mistake at any point in the process can be a burden on a company.
Processing is time consuming
It can be slow to process vendor payouts especially if you have new vendors. You need to start from scratch — adding them as a beneficiary, wait for the cooling period to end, and then making a payment. On top of that, a lot of numbers bring a lot of errors that might lead to delayed or wrong payments.
Manual reconciliation can be tedious
Businesses have to constantly make manual checks on the due dates of invoices or regularly reconcile accounts of the payments received from vendors. This can be not just a long and time-consuming process, but also an error/fraud-prone process with less real-time visibility and some guess work involved.
Excel sheets can be complicated
Even if you are working with around just 15 to 20 invoices, the number will grow as your business does. Maintaining sheets as records work well when you have a limited number of vendors. However, once your vendors start growing, sheets start to get complicated.
