Sage Launches Cloud AP Workflow Automation for Construction Industry

The new cloud solution simplifies and automates processes from project start to finish by reducing paper-heavy and manual tasks that drain time and budget.


Sage has launched its new Sage Intacct Paperless, a cloud-based solution that delivers an easy way to store, retrieve, and route accounts payable (AP) documents. The add-on solution integrates with Sage Intacct Construction, the best-in-class native cloud financial management system purpose-built for construction. Sage is a provider of technology for small and mid-sized businesses.

The new cloud solution simplifies and automates processes from project start to finish by reducing paper-heavy and manual tasks that drain time and budget. It builds on the success of Sage Paperless Construction, the existing on-premises version of the product that integrates with Sage 100 Contractor, Sage 300 Construction and Real Estate, and Sage Intacct Construction. Together, the two solutions create Sage Paperless for Construction, offering both on-premises and cloud-based versions of the product.

A.M. Ortega Construction, Inc., an underground utility contractor based in San Diego, has increased profits and cash flow while growing faster with less overhead using Sage Paperless Construction.

“Our time and material jobs profits have increased about $3-4 million per year due the process changes made possible with this product,” says Bruce Evenrud, CFO, A.M. Ortega Construction Inc. “We’ve also reduced our billing cycle from 15 – 20 days down to two days. This single process change increased our cash flow by over $4 million per month.”

Efficient AP workflow management is essential in construction. With Sage Intacct Paperless, teams can centralize their vital business content in one secure location and gain control over electronic content.

“Document management plays a critical role in ensuring the success of construction projects by facilitating compliance, risk management, collaboration, communication, efficiency, and accountability throughout the project lifecycle,” says Julie Adams, Senior Vice President of Product, Construction and Real Estate, Sage. “Sage Intacct Paperless helps take the frustration out of document management and saves construction businesses invaluable time and resources, delivering real business results.”
