AP Automation with SAP Case Study (Global Manufacturer)

As a Fortune 100 Manufacturer with annual revenue of $15 billion, the client was processing more than 1.25 million invoices annually. Additionally, these invoices came from more than 8,000 vendors in a very manual-based Accounts Payable environment. The client decided to tackle this problem by partnering with Naviant to improve their document-centric business processes. As a result, the client realized an ROI of less than one year and saved an estimated $1.5 million in the first year post-implementation.
