Accounting Automation

Save time and improve accuracy.

Airbase accounting automation starts with the moment a transaction is requested and flows to the GL.

Our automation spans across the entire lifecycle of a transaction, from approval workflows to auto-categorization, bill creation, receipt capture, and syncing to the GL. We even offer automated receipt compliance enforcement.

Airbase has definitely helped in the closing process by making everything more automated. The system can tag and categorize and sync transactions directly to the GL. It’s freed up time for us to do other things. We’re saving 20 hours a week. Effectively, Airbase does more work than a half-time employee.

Transactions are automatically synced.

Airbase accounting automation syncs all transactions to the GL.

Virtual cards are automatically synced to your GL when the transaction occurs. We integrate with QuickBooks Online, Xero, Sage Intacct, and Oracle NetSuite. All other payment types can be easily synced to the GL once a payment is made.

Auto-categorization updates the GL fields of physical card transactions based on past GL entries.

Ledger entry fields for vendor, category, line tags, and transaction tags will be auto-categorized.

Amortization.

Easily set contract start and end dates for amortization schedules, or let Airbase select them from the invoice. Select the prepaid account you’d like the transaction booked to, and then every month, Airbase will automatically make the journal entry for you. The individual monthly journal entries are synced to the GL, and the schedule can be easily tracked.

JD Higginbotham, Controller at Ridecell
“When we had five Amex cards, we’d download all of those transactions into Xero and then our accounting manager would spend close to a full day going through all of the transactions to make sure they were assigned to the proper GL accounts and departments. Now that process is no longer required because Airbase puts each transaction into the right bucket automatically. It’s almost like a fire-and-forget solution.”
