MINNEAPOLIS and Falls Church, VA – U.S. Bank and Nexus Systems are entering into a strategic agreement to establish a new standard for end-to-end electronic invoice processing and payment. Combining Nexus’ invoicing software expertise with U.S. Bank’s market-leading payment processing capabilities, the collaboration will produce completely automated accounts payable management solutions.

“Having seen the efficiency and cost-savings of payment automation, our customers now seek to extend those benefits to the front of the procurement cycle by shifting to paperless invoicing,” said Jeff Pape, payables product manager for U.S. Bank Corporate Payment Systems. “Teaming up with Nexus will enable us to address those customer needs efficiently. U.S. Bank’s payment tools can seamlessly integrate with the customer’s own IT systems and Nexus technology for a smooth, end-to-end work stream that produces greater accuracy, fewer exceptions and fewer calls from suppliers.”

Organizations that combine U.S. Bank’s Payables solutions with the Nexus invoice automation network can expect cloud-based paperless processing to lower their operating costs, increase their early payment discounts, maximize their working capital, enhance their audit controls and allow them to redeploy staff to more strategic activities.

Surveys show about one in four organizations in the United States had electronic invoicing tools in 2013, up from one in five the previous yeari. While much of the early adoption was among Fortune 1000 companies, electronic invoicing by small and medium enterprises is acceleratingii. Organizations that process high volumes of paper invoices at multiple locations benefit most from converting.

“This joint effort will enable organizations to save significant amounts of time and money when processing invoices,” said Nexus Systems CEO and Founder Thomas Coolidge. “By combining U.S. Bank’s market-leading corporate payments offering with Nexus’ procurement, purchase order, and invoice offering, we have created a new industry standard. We’re thrilled to be collaborating with U.S. Bank in this endeavor and are eager to get started.”
