Real estate developer reduces manual tasks and paper, gains efficiency with mobile approvals
SANTA BARBARA, California, Aug. 30, 2018 – With its portfolio continually expanding, commercial and residential property developer Buchanan Partners LLC sought a new invoice processing system that could keep up. The company selected Yardi® PAYscan™ to automate its invoice processing approval workflows through vendor payment.
Yardi PAYscan is part of Yardi® Procure to Pay, an end-to-end procurement, vendor management and electronic invoicing platform. “PAYscan has saved clients up to 80% on per-invoice costs and 75% on per-invoice processing time,” said Akshai Rao, vice president of Procure to Pay for Yardi. “The solution minimizes errors from lost invoices, duplicate payments, late payments and overpayments by automatically matching invoices to purchase orders.”
“With a larger portfolio, we needed new tools to help our staff be more productive by eliminating manual data entry. We also wanted to reduce the volume of paper taking up space in our offices. PAYscan has done all that with automated workflows, electronic processing and instant drilldown to invoices and receipts. We don’t have to search through file cabinets and multiple databases,” said Johanna C. Bolin, controller for Buchanan. “With mobile access to the Yardi cloud, our workers are as empowered to process invoices in the field as they are in the office.”
Seamless integration of Yardi PAYscan with Buchanan’s Yardi Voyager® property management and accounting platform enables easy retrieval of invoices and other scanned items such as lease documents and W-9s.
