Arro

Solution: AR eInvoicing

Arro is the trading name of National Hardware Ltd, a buying group for over 100 independent home, garden, DIY and builders merchants. Established for over 50 years and with a turnover in excess of €120 million, the group is made up of 70 members and deals with 400 active suppliers. Arro implemented SoftCo AR eInvoicing to simplify its existing billing process.

Challenge

Arro needed to manage a complex, manual billing process with over 144,000 paper invoices every month. Each independent member placed orders directly with a supplier, who sent the invoice to Arro. The group had to pay the supplier, generate an AR invoice manually, and invoice the member. The specific requirements of the buying group drove implementation of both AP and AR automation.

Results

Since deploying SoftCo AR eInvoicing, Arro has achieved a 90% reduction in manual invoice generation, processing, distribution and postage costs. Through SoftCo Portal, the AR team and members have full visibility of AR invoices and supporting information as well as handle payment queries.

“Within a year of deploying SoftCo AR eInvoicing, we have benefited from a 90% reduction in postage and handling costs.”
