Operational Accounting – is the backbone of financial management within organizations, focusing on the day-to-day transactions that drive business operations. Three key areas within operational accounting include accounts payable, accounts receivable, and billing, each playing a crucial role in ensuring the smooth functioning of a company’s financial relationship with consumers and vendors alike.


  • Completing payments and controlling expenses by receiving, processing, verifying, and reconciling invoices in compliance with company policies and procedures.
  • Maintaining accounting ledgers by verifying and posting account transactions.
  • Verifying vendor accounts by reconciling monthly statements and related transactions.
  • Establishing and building positive rapport with vendors and key internal stakeholders to facilitate the processing of payables in a timely manner and to be a point of contact for inquiries.
  • Reviewing and auditing expense reports submitted to ensure compliance with established policies before issuing payment.
  • Ad hoc operational accounting projects as needed.
  • Collecting payments from customers and accurately recording them in the system

Key Functions

    • AP Function & Processing: Accounts payable refers to the money owed by a company to its suppliers or vendors for goods or services received on credit. The accounts payable process involves receiving and verifying invoices, reconciling purchase orders and receipts, and authorizing payments to vendors. It ensures timely settlement of obligations while maintaining accurate records of outstanding liabilities. Efficient accounts payable management requires effective communication with vendors, adherence to payment terms, and implementation of internal controls to prevent errors or fraud. It also involves optimizing cash flow by strategically scheduling payments and negotiating favorable terms with suppliers.



    • AR Function & Processing: Accounts receivable represent the money owed to a company by its customers for goods or services provided on credit. The accounts receivable process encompasses generating invoices, tracking receivables, and following up on overdue payments. It involves verifying sales transactions, applying payments to customer accounts, and reconciling accounts receivable records with general ledger balances. Effective accounts receivable management involves establishing credit policies, monitoring customer creditworthiness, and implementing collections strategies to minimize delinquencies. It also requires maintaining accurate customer records, resolving billing disputes promptly, and optimizing cash flow through timely collections.



    • Billing: Involves issuing invoices to customers for goods or services rendered, specifying payment terms and details. The billing process includes generating invoices based on sales orders or service agreements, applying appropriate pricing and discounts, and delivering invoices to customers through various channels. It ensures accurate documentation of revenue transactions and facilitates timely payment processing. Strategic billing management entails streamlining invoicing processes, reducing billing errors or discrepancies, and enhancing billing accuracy and timeliness. It also involves communicating billing policies and terms to customers, addressing billing inquiries or disputes, and leveraging technology solutions for automated billing and invoicing.

7-Step Origin Staffing Candidate Process

Results are achieved by understanding the “why”. Details matter. Let’s partner up & get it done.
  • Introductory Call / Meeting
  • Resume Strategy
  • Determining search parameters
  • Origin Staffing will only show you opportunities within set parameters. We always present the whole story behind the openings – including describing the company’s business infrastructure / future growth plans, reason for opening, team structure, general compensation & benefits info, job description and most importantly any specific color on the opportunity directly from the hiring manager.
  • We NEVER send your resume to any companies until we receive your permission – “Green light with interest to pursue”
  • Every company has a different interview process – some just want to get to know you, some will grill you on a technical level, some expect you to know specifics about them, some have deal breaker parameters not shown on the job description. This is only on a company level. Then each interviewer has their own style.
  • We’ll prep you to help navigate this minefield, and make sure you make a great 1st, 2nd and sometimes 3rd impression.
  • On the other side – most interviews are very informational in nature – hence we’ll help you fine-tune the appropriate questions to ask (and sometimes most importantly to avoid) to get the information necessary to make the right decision @ the end of an interview process.
  • This happens early in the process, in the middle of interviewing, and at the “decision step”. Origin Staffing is incentivized to make sure you are excited about an offer package.
