How MineralTree Beats The Competition

ap-automation-vendors-how-mineraltree-comparesBusinesses must reduce costs, improve efficiencies and prevent mistakes in their accounts payable department. That is why so many organizations explore AP automation solutions.

MineralTree Invoice-to-Pay is the ideal solution for companies using NetSuite, QuickBooks, Sage Intacct, Sage 50, Xero or Microsoft Dynamics GP as their accounting system. And here is why:

1. Integration

MineralTree has a true API level integration ensuring data is in sync with your accounting system. Most of our competitors use a file based integration, increasing the chance of discrepancies. And, the last thing you want is to automate, and then lose that time finding and fixing discrepancies.

2. Data Capture

Out-of-the-box MineralTree provides 99.5% data accuracy, using a combination of technology and human review. Most competitive solutions leverage only technology and require that the system “learns” all the different invoice formats.  Even then, they only provide an 80-90% accuracy rate. Also, MineralTree offers both header level and line level invoice data capture.  Competitors only capture header level – you do the majority of data entry.

3. Payment Processing

Unlike competitors using settlement accounts, MineralTree sends payments directly from your bank to your vendors. That means faster payments and checks display your company info and signatures. And, money isn’t debited from your account until the vendor receives funds, making reconciliation easy.  Also if needed, it’s simple to cancel or stop payment. We centralize and automatically send remittance for all payments including check, ACH, your company credit cards, and the MineralTree electronic payment network.

And there are already over 500k US merchants who receive payments through our payment network, and you receive a .5% rebate on all payments.

4. Support

Every MineralTree customer has a dedicated project manager who ensures smooth implementation.  And a customer success manager works with you after implementation, whenever you need them. That means that you always have a direct point of contact when you need it most. Don’t get caught submitting tickets with our competition and anxiously waiting for a response.

5. Cash-Flow Visibility

MineralTree provides visibility to your bank cash, card balances, and GL cash so you always have a clear picture of your cash position. Competitors don’t integrate directly with your bank – you must log-in individually to your bank and card accounts for balances.

6. Fraud Protection

We help prevent fraud through: segregation of duties, dual factor authentication for payment authorizers, and Positive Pay support. And, because MineralTree is resold by banks and financial institutions we meet the industry’s most rigorous security standards. While the competition promotes the security of their offering they do not protect you from fraud itself.

7. Approval Hierarchy

With a tremendous amount of flexibility and ability to set approval hierarchies, you control how invoices are approved and paid. Set rules based on vendor, coding, amounts, etc… Approvals can be set by default and adjusted for “one-offs.” And, unlike our competitors who limit approval levels or the number of check signers, MineralTree allows you to properly enforce your permissions and controls.

8. ERP/Accounting System Remains “System Of Record”

You rely on your accounting system as your true system of record and we don’t change that. With our two-way integration, updates in MineralTree sync back to the accounting system and vice versa. And you can originate invoices in either system. In MineralTree, the document images sync directly into the accounting system, unlike competitors who often provide a link to the document in their system. And, when it comes to purchase order match, we properly link your invoice to the PO in your system, instead of just providing a disconnected reference to the items.

9. Ease Of Use For All

Everyone says their software is easy to use, but MineralTree has the customer reviews to prove it. Unlike other complicated solutions that aren’t user friendly, MineralTree was built from the ground up with ease of use in mind.

10. Accounts Payable Automation Is Our Only Focus

Accounts Payable automation is what MineralTree does. We don’t dilute our resources on accounts receivable, payroll or expenses. So we offer AP automation solutions that work for you and that evolve with market demands.
