About Lightyear

Lightyear (formerly Invitbox), a global Software as a Service (SaaS) business was founded in 2017 by brothers Chris & Roger Gregg. The core focus is to develop and build cutting edge Accounts Payables cloud accounting products and offers complete solutions from PO’s to invoicing. 

Their mission is to help businesses thrive by delivering innovative tools which streamline processes and payments, digitise data, provide insights and connect businesses in the Lightyear Cloud.

How Lightyear Works With Venues

- Eliminate data entry and automate approvals into OrderMate Point of Sale Stock/Inventory control

  • Once a document is uploaded, all line item data is extracted and sent into the inventory software, this will give hospitality owners and operators a live overview of stock which they can see what they are missing or when items need to be reordered in real-time

- Create PO's inside Lightyear

  • Hospitality owners and operators can streamline their payment processes by tagging approvals directly, which will help to reduce time, costs and effort

- Connect with Lightyear's innovative companion app

  • Instantly collaborate with approvers, finance teams and suppliers with the app that allows users to approve on the go from anywhere. Tag connected users so they can see associated notes and assigned tasks both online and through the app

- Assign approvals

  • Assign up to 5 levels of approval for each supplier

- Automate Supplier Statement Reconciliation

  • Automatically reconcile your supplier statements in seconds and request missing documentation in 2 clicks

  • Automate processes that will drastically reduce stocktake time, eliminate human errors and giving owners and operators a live overview of their Accounts Payable process

  • Go paperless with Lightyear's unique data capture software and scan/upload the supplier bills for unparalleled accuracy in data extraction

“We are very excited to bring this partnership to OrderMate customers which will open up our solution to a range of businesses who otherwise wouldn’t have been able to take advantage of our paperless and automated Accounts Payable software.

The partnership timing is very topical with a huge shift in the market towards paperless and remote Accounts Payable solutions being largely driven by enforced remote working due to COVID. Together, we are happy to be supporting our mutual customers on their journey to a paperless office.” Roger Gregg - President at Lightyear
