Businesses everywhere go through the same time-consuming routines: Send sales order to accounting. Prepare an invoice. Mail or email the invoice. Prepare purchase order. Receive bills. Match invoice with purchase order. Enter bills into QuickBooks or another accounting system. Generate a list of who to pay when. Print checks. Sign checks. Match checks with invoices. Put checks into envelopes. Apply postage.
