Automated invoice and expense processing improves cycle time and accuracy and decreases cost for pharma client

A leading pharmaceutical company was experiencing problems in the daily handling of paper-based invoices and expense forms and integrating them into the SAP Accounts Payable system.

CGI’s expertise in integration and business process optimization was leveraged to recommend a solution that included image capture and content management, and was then integrated with the SAP system. The solution eliminated paper and manual processing, reducing the cost and time to process invoices and expenses. Additional value delivered:

  • Documents are in electronic form allowing users to view the status of an invoice, check or grant request at any time.
  • Automated data entry and approval workflow has significantly improved the cycle time for processing documents as well as the accuracy of information entered.
  • The client’s AP team is able to use one system to manage all of their document, improving metric reporting, creating uniformity and global standardization within the accounts payable process.
