In the first half of 2021, reported losses in the UK due to payment fraud and cybercrime tripled compared with the same period the previous year. In order to protect your business and your financial assets from accounts payable fraud, it’s essential to have the right technology in place to automate key processes.
Do you currently email spreadsheets around to get approval for payments?
Are you manually typing in bank details and amounts each time you need to pay your suppliers?
Do you have a clear audit trail of who made which payments?
These practices pose potential risks for your business and are things that can be easily mitigated.
ApprovalMax provides a robust approval process for your business, helping tighten spend control, mitigate fraud and introduce audit trails.
In any business, it's important to ensure that no single employee is in change of payments. Automating your approval process through ApprovalMax ensures all payments go through a consistent granular financial control process.
Audit trails are generated automatically in ApprovalMax and contain all authorisation decisions and exceptions. Audit reports are then automatically attached to approved documents in the general ledger, where you can view them without having to log into ApprovalMax.
ApprovalMax also detects any changes made to documents after approval and automatically notifies account admins, ensuring nothing slips through the cracks.

When you connect your business to Telleroo you can assign separate creator and approver permissions and set payment limits to minimise exposure to fraud.
When setting up a pay run in Telleroo you can use the bank details scanner to pull the sort code and account number directly from the invoice, reducing the risk of human error.

Thanks to our integration with Approval Max you can verify that the payment has gone through the proper approval flow from within Telleroo when setting up the pay run.
