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.
SoftCo AP was deployed for centralized business automation, providing integrated scanning and routing across all regions and storage in the SoftCo compliant archive. All invoices are captured and matched against valid purchase orders ensuring supplier compliance. The Bulmers Accounts Payable team now enjoy improved control and visibility over the entire AP process.
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.
