Bulmers

Solution: AP Automation

Bulmers is part of the global C&C Group, producing some of the most famous cider and lager brands in the world. C&C Group has manufacturing operations in Ireland, Scotland, England, and USA. Bulmers manage 40,000 annual supplier invoices efficiently across multiple time zones, using SoftCo AP.

Challenge

The invoice volume managed by the Bulmers accounts payable department had doubled to nearly 40,000 supplier invoices annually. The existing paper-based, manual invoice approval and payment process required automation to support all international offices. Bulmers also required full visibility over all invoices processed and a reduction in the time taken to process supplier invoices.

Results

Bulmers have full visibility over the status of all invoices for each entity. Problem invoices are pinpointed and issues resolved across various time zones within days instead of weeks. Significant time and costs has been saved, supplier queries are handled promptly and Bulmers are able to access all invoices and related information compliantly.

“Because staff act faster, we can pay suppliers faster and have better relationships with them.”
