MADISON, Wis. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Esker, a worldwide leader in document process automation solutions, announced today that it has reached an agreement with a leading food production company. The U.S. division of the multinational manufacturer has chosen Esker’s cloud-based Accounts Payable (AP) solution to fully automate the processing of vendor invoices within its multiple ERP applications.
The company operates multiple plants across North America with one centralized receiving area. Previously, paper invoices were entered manually into the company’s ERP applications, while the system for tracking approvals required even more manual handling. Ultimately, these bottlenecks were negatively impacting processing costs and operating efficiency. Esker’s AP solution provides intelligent capture, touchless processing and electronic workflow capabilities that will allow the company to receive and enter invoices faster, lower purchase-to-pay costs, and bring oversight to the entire approval/payment process, Thanks to the cloud approach and Esker’s agile methodology, the company is expecting to go live with their automation solution only six weeks after the official start of the project.
“No matter the industry, automation is a proven tool for businesses seeking to streamline their invoice processing,” said Steve Smith, U.S. Chief Operating Officer at Esker. “There are undeniable advantages to companies that decide to automate. With our cloud-based solution, we’re able to help customers with any number of locations and ERP systems like this one work more efficiently, reduce errors and costs, and create a more centralized vendor invoicing process.”
