When a buyer asks for a quotation the seller should always provide a pro-forma invoice. A pro-forma invoice is an invoice sent in advance of the commercial invoice, which is the final bill that the buyer agrees to pay. Some of the advantages of pro-forma invoice to the importer include to show to his government for foreign currency allocation, opening letters of credit and most importantly, to have a detailed information on the transaction that can help him plan. An accurate and professionally submitted pro forma-invoice can help buyers to make a decision and agree to the quotation.
Many AP departments receive thousands and thousands of paper invoices per year, which will need to be manually keyed into a finance system. This process is very slow, inefficient and costly. It is very easy to lose or misplace important paper documents when handling them manually, but with an automated invoice processing solution all documents can be stored electronically. The AP team will be able to retrieve invoices instantly, meaning no more time will be wasted searching for invoices in filing cabinets or folders.
