I love baking – I find it relaxing, rewarding and of course, the best bit is the outcome! I mean, who doesn’t like cake?!
I’m no baking expert, it’s just something that I enjoy, and really, there’s not much to baking a basic cake once you get the ingredients and techniques right. For me, it’s the decorating that’s the tricky part.
Getting the balance of ingredients right is key though – the flour, butter, sugar, eggs and flavouring need to be carefully balanced in order to achieve a good texture and flavour. This and the mixing and baking techniques are the keys to a successful and delicious cake.
It’s a bit like automating AP processing with Esker; once you get the ingredients and process right, it too can become successful, rewarding and indeed more relaxing for your AP team!
Think of the flour as being the basic process – the electronic invoices and archiving capabilities; the eggs – the controlled and electronic workflow that holds the whole thing together; the sugar – the sweet automatic reminders for effortless approval and automatic invoice matching; and the butter – the binding integration with ERP and other business systems.
And the extra sweet stuff on top?…payment approval from mobile devices and readily available audits, KPIs and analytics.
Fancy a piece of the Esker cake?
