Duplicate Payment Audit

We Recover Errors In Every ERP System

SAS’ sophisticated technology identifies all potential duplicate payments by combining our proprietary software, tools, and machine learning to recover funds as a result of duplicate payments. Our extensive experience and continuously improving analytics deliver a more thorough review of all transactions than most organizations can do on their own.

Decades Of Experience Over Thousands Of Audit Projects

With our Accounts Payable Duplicate Payment Recovery Audit we’re continuously refining our software through machine learning. This allows us to efficiently cut through the volume of false positives to identify only those transactions that are then further researched and validated with the supplier.
