Professor Rogers summarized the characteristics of the Early Majority as follows: “They adopt an innovation after a varying degree of time that is significantly longer than the innovators and early adopters. Early Majority have above average social status, contact with early adopters and seldom hold positions of opinion leadership in a system.”
I suspect the early majority has been dealing with other priorities, and is now coming around to AP Automation as part of a broader digital transformation agenda. The timing is good. AP automation has improved significantly from the early days. Expensive, perpetual license solutions have given way to cloud-based services that are priced on a per-invoice basis. Embedded analytic applications complement the transactional nature of AP automation, and the ability to review and approve invoices on a mobile device is required functionality.
