Agency Creative

Streamline client billing and internal and external audits.

Managing payables and billing is a tall order for creative advertising agencies. 

A single print advertisement, digital campaign or television commercial can involve hundreds of people, services and products -- resulting in lots of paper and electronic invoices and related documents that must be processed and managed.  Making matters worse, this high volume of invoices and documents may include:

  • A potentially huge number of line items
  • Dozens and dozens of suppliers
  • Lots of supporting documentation
  • Billable and non-billable expenses
  • Intense pressure to track accruals and budgets


Keeping track of this all requires careful attention to detail and tremendous organizational skills.  The smallest slipup can delay a multi-million-dollar payment for a big creative advertising campaign.

As part of the IPS AP Automation Solution for Agency Creative, we provide an electronic job jacket for all documentation related to a campaign.

On top of their so-called production payables, creative ad agencies also must manage the non-billable (or “house”) payables related to running the agency – things like rent, utilities and office supplies.
