As procurement processes evolve, the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) stands out as a transformative force. Understanding the power of AI to transform Accounts Payable, Kloo has integrated AI throughout the platform, whether that be to improve the accuracy of OCR, autonomously match invoices to POs, or provide approvers with invaluable AI-generated insights. In today’s blog, we are going to be talking about Kloo’s predictive purchase requests, and how these bring a new level of foresight to procurement. 

So how do we predict when you’re going to raise a spend? Some sort of mystical AP crystal ball? The reality is a little less magical but equally cool. Kloo’s AI is constantly sifting through your historical spend data, learning from past trends in spending and quickly identifying recurrent spend for you. For instance, if you pay quarterly for a software license, Kloo will recognise this pattern and bring it to your attention next time you need to pay. This proactive notification is much more than a calendar alert; it’s completely pre-made purchase request, with all the requisite details filled in for you. All you have to do is click ‘submit’.

Why use proactive purchasing? 

One of the primary benefits of this foresight is the avoidance of late payments. Kloo's predictive purchase requests ensure that renewals and recurring payments are dealt with promptly, preventing any last-minute rushes and maintaining healthy supplier relationships. 

Improved cash flow management is another significant advantage. With a clearer projection of future spend, businesses can plan their budgets with greater confidence. Kloo's insights help maintain a balance between current liabilities and future expenses, enabling more strategic allocation of financial resources. By understanding what, when, and how much you're likely to spend, your procurement strategy can be fine-tuned, aligning spending with business priorities and goals. 


In essence, Kloo's Predictive Purchase Requests feature transcends the mere act of staying ahead of payments; it offers a comprehensive overview of a company's financial commitments. By empowering businesses to adopt a proactive procurement approach, Kloo transforms what was once a reactive process into a strategic and systematic endeavor. This transformation not only ensures financial stability but also provides the necessary agility to adapt to ever-changing market dynamics.

As we conclude, we extend an invitation to businesses seeking to enhance their procurement operations to explore Kloo's transformative capabilities. Embracing Kloo means staying ahead of the curve, maintaining robust financial footing, and fostering a culture of innovation within your organization.
