Abbey Tours

Solution : AP Automation

Abbey Tours is one of Ireland’s longest established Irish tour operators. Their worldwide services provide Travel Trade Partners with the best price, product, and service to sell Destination Ireland and the UK successfully in the international marketplace. Abbey Tours implemented SoftCo AP Automation (SoftCo AP) to reduce the processing time of 40,000 annual supplier invoices.


Abbey Tours was faced with the challenge of handling 40,000 annual supplier PO and non-PO invoices across its Dublin and Edinburgh locations. Abbey Tours required an efficient way of managing problem invoices as well as reducing delays in invoice authorization and within the payment process.


SoftCo AP incorporated the electronic capture, routing, and approval of supplier invoices. Invoice workflow approval and authorization was implemented in both the Dublin and Edinburgh locations, reducing the time taken to approve invoices. All invoices are archived the SoftCo AP compliant archive. 


Abbey Tours accounts payable team has reported significantly improved productivity since the deployment. The electronic handling of invoices across borders permits swift and accurate authorization, and has dramatically reduced former delays in the company’s payment process.


“Automating the process has delivered very tangible savings in terms of time and money to Abbey Tours.”
