Invoice Software for Accounting Firms

Spend 80% Less Time On Invoices

EDI connections with every vendor. Really.

All AP automation platforms let you process invoices in bulk.

Only Plate IQ offers Vendor Connections, a revolutionary way to get the equivalent of EDI invoices directly from vendors — even if they don’t offer it.

Your invoices, digitized

Every invoice arrives in your inbox GL-coded down to the line item. Map new items just once: Plate IQ will remember it in the future.

Make every approver happy

Some clients want to approve every invoice. Some want to see none. Plate IQ accommodates any approval process with approval routing based on things like:

  • Vendor
  • GL Account
  • Min / Max Total
  • Method Received
  • Time Received

Before Plate IQ, we probably looked at each invoice five or six times. Now we use Plate IQ. Instead of walking invoices between different people’s piles, we just load everything in and the system’s rules send every invoice to the right approvers.

Save some trees, and some space

You’re never more than a click away from source documentation with a system that stores a digital copy of each invoice — and its audit trail — in one searchable digital filing cabinet.

How J Ely Processes Invoices 83% Faster While Gaining More Visibility

A one-line invoice used to take us 30 seconds to key in. Now it takes us 5. But here’s the thing: that 100-item Reinhart invoice used to take us about half an hour to process. Now, that also takes 5 seconds. Plate IQ saves us a ton of time and work.

Close the loop on your invoices

  • Pay any invoice with virtual cards, ACH, or let us mail a check for you
  • Unlimited transactions & approvers
  • Earn cash back on vCard payments

We like that Plate IQ charges the same for Bill Pay every month. We’re not getting charged $1.50 for every check or ACH that goes out. And we have seen the time spent on payables drop considerably in the last couple of months. Our time with each client just gets more efficient.
