Invoice Processing Software for FreeWheel's Strata Platform

    The best invoice-to-pay solution for Strata users

    Managing the business side of an ad agency or marketing company can be hard. Time spent on administrative tasks is time that staff cannot spend on higher value activities that drive growth.

    Invoice processing software from IPS lets Strata users focus on what matters most.

    The IPS AP Automation solution extracts the header and line-item details from invoices, matches invoices against insertion orders residing in FreeWheel’s Strata application, digitally routes any invoices requiring approval or exceptions handling based on preset rules, and uploads approved invoices directly into Strata, without the need for human operator intervention.

    IPS provides Strata users with a digital invoice approval and posting process from Day 1.  Eliminating the manual tasks required to enter invoices enables ad agencies and marketing companies to post invoices faster and more accurately, in a transparent and secure manner.

    And IPS invoice processing software doesn’t change the way that Strata users work.
