  • 60 minutes

Duplicated payments are typically prevented by ERP systems if all the data elements in an invoice are an exact match. While these “perfect matches” are identified and prevented, management often does not know, in the absence of an external third party audit, whether other duplicate payments have been made. The critical issue is to understand that there are many causes of potentially duplicated payments within the accounts payable process.

High volumes of transactions, increased levels of operational complexity, and an often diverse range of ERP platforms and systems, make managing the procure to pay (P2P) cycle challenging. Understanding which transactions are critical to review for potential risk makes monitoring the accounts payable process even more difficult.
