Case Study | Manufacturer with SAP Saves Millions Automating AP
As a Fortune 100 global manufacturer of consumer and commercial products, the client prides itself on shared expertise, operating efficiencies, and a culture of innovation. The client employs over 22,500 employees worldwide with annual revenue of approximately $6 billion.
Annually, the client was manually processing more than one million invoices within their Accounts Payable operations. The process included receipt of invoices from more than 1,200 different vendors via fax, mail, and email, and a completely paper-based intake process to route and move invoices through the approval and payment process.
The client recognized the need for process improvement but didn’t know where to start, so they looked to Naviant Group to help build a roadmap to a new process that would automate Accounts Payable (AP) while leveraging existing investments in technology.
Naviant Group facilitated a discovery engagement to take a detailed look at how the process was handled today (Current State), and make strategic recommendations for implementing best practices and best-of-breed solutions to reduce costs and increase overall throughput for AP processing (Future State).
