Non-Profit Freedom Forum Is Now Live on Ariett Cloud Purchase and Expense

Ariett News – December 12, 2016 – Ariett, a leading provider of Cloud Purchase and Expense software, announced that  the Freedom Forum is live on Ariett AP Invoice Automation in the Microsoft Azure Cloud, providing them with quick AP invoice capture and approval and seamless integration to their accounting system.  Located in Washington D.C., the Freedom Forum is a non partisan foundation that advocates for the First Amendment and is the primary funder of the Newseum and Newseum Institute.

President of Ariett Glenn Brodie says, “Forward-thinking non-profit organizations like the Freedom Forum recognize that cloud AP automation solutions, such as Ariett, deliver strategic value to non-profits through their reliability, security and cost-effectiveness for adding users, transactions and solutions.

The Freedom Forum’s cloud selection allows them to reap the full benefits of Ariett’s Microsoft Azure Cloud platform, including the security of data, unlimited document storage and automatic product updates.  Ariett’s cloud database backups are continuous and are located in different data center locations.  For further security, Ariett provides the option to use Azure Active Directory for the IT team to easily manage user access and for employees to use one login for Ariett, Office 365 and other Azure apps.  The Freedom Forum can also benefit from Ariett’s frequent product updates without having to involve IT and can take advantage of new features and solutions without having to purchase an additional product.

Using Ariett AP Invoice Automation and Document Capture Service, the Freedom Forum’s AP team members, employees or vendors can quickly email invoices to the service to automatically create a validated AP transaction.  Invoices can then be routed for multiple levels of approval before posting directly to their ERP system and Ariett retains a record of all approvals and comments. Financial managers gain visibility to all invoice accruals and can project cash flow by running reports on invoices by due date.  In addition, Ariett offers a completely integrated AP invoice to electronic payment processing solution, which reduces costs and provides greater transparency for payments.

With the Ariett Cloud, the Freedom Forum also gains Ariett’s robust support for accounting rules, such as intercompany processing.  On an AP invoice transaction, an AP team member just checks a box and the expense can be allocated to another company.
