Processing financial documents is a crucial aspect of an organization's back office operations. This typically entails sorting through documents, manually inputting data, and conducting accounting tasks, as well as managing payment approvals. However, this manual process can be time-consuming, error-prone, and inefficient. As a result, many companies have turned to rule-based automation solutions like OCR and workflow automation, but the results have been mixed.
With the advent of more advanced AI, one of the primary challenges in processing financial documents has been addressed. The need to comprehend and interpret documents to determine how to handle them has been greatly improved with GPT-based language understanding AI. This technology enables software to better comprehend text and learn about accounting and internal workflows, allowing for more efficient processing of financial documents. OpenAI's ChatGPT, for example, has created numerous automation opportunities in everyday life through its advanced language understanding capabilities.
However, how can this language understanding technology be employed to address the challenges of accounts payable invoice processing in organizations? The upcoming paradigm shift for back office operations, as well as how businesses may benefit from it, are covered in this blog article.
GPT technology has revolutionized the way we understand information from text and generate high-quality outputs. By pre-training models on vast amounts of text data, GPT models can be fine-tuned to perform specific tasks, such as language translation, question answering, and even accounts payable (AP) automation.
However, for GPT models to be effective in automating back-office processes, like AP invoice automation (APIA), they need to be trained using private information such as text from invoices and historical bookkeeping data from ERP systems. This individualized training allows the models to extract and categorize data from finance documents with high accuracy, assign general ledger accounts, determine the best workflow approver, match POs and assign cost centers with human-like quality in a matter of seconds.
GPT-based automation reduces the time and resources needed to process invoices, allowing AP teams to focus on more strategic tasks. It also reduces the risk of errors that can occur during manual data entry, improving overall accuracy. With its ability to learn from large amounts of data, next generation AI can continuously improve its accuracy over time, further increasing efficiency and reducing errors.
Organizations can benefit greatly from implementing advanced AI for accounts payable invoice automation. By using their own data to train the models, organizations can improve the accuracy and efficiency of their AP processes, ultimately leading to increased productivity and cost savings.
Hypatos’ AccountingGPT is revolutionizing finance operations, making automation and data quality possible in a way that previously was unthinkable. Large AI models can be trained on tens of millions of finance documents and organizations’ ERP data to create highly accurate models that can extract and categorize data from finance documents with remarkable precision.
