How International Restaurant Management Group Achieves AP Efficiency At Scale

“I can’t quantify the time savings, but Ottimate transformed everything. We don’t have to wait for an invoice to physically get into our office, and then for somebody to open it up. And we avoid a lot of mistakes by not having someone physically [process each invoice].”

I am totally happy with Ottimate for AP and VendorPay!

The bill pay feature is awesome. It has saved me time and money.

The scanning of invoices vs. manually inputting them into QuickBooks is a huge benefit.
