Eliminate data entry and automate Approvals into 
Accounting, Point of Sale, Inventory and Work Management systems.

Creating an efficient Accounts Payable process can be tricky, but not with Lightyear.  Traditional solutions focus on handling your paper bills better.  At Lightyear, we believe that if you start with paper, you end up with rubbish.  Just because you receive a paper bill does not mean that you need to process it.
Simple to implement
Lightyear receives and processes your supplier's pdf bills in real-time ... just the supplier's normal bills, sent to you as a pdf - nothing fancy, so supplier adoption is a breeze.  Then, Lightyear's proprietary AI-driven technology extracts line-by-line data with incredible accuracy in real-time before putting the bill in front of the person whose job it is to approve it ... the person who needs to see it, and use the data contained within it.

Incredible savings
Lightyear saves teams up to 80% of their time by removing and automating repetitive and mundane tasks that can be prone to human error.  You won't see the cost of processing bills as a line item on a P&L, but the cost is there - in payroll, office space, stationary, over-charging, duplicate payments and missed opportunities for early settlement discount.  Lightyear cuts those costs dramatically, allowing you to put those resources into growing your business.

Trusted and secure
Lightyear is GDPR compliant, is ISO-27001 certified and has features such as two-factor authentication, so you can rest easy in the knowledge that all your data is held securely in the cloud, giving you peace of mind and easy access whenever you need it.
