You acquired a business and inherited provision of long standing services to a major Oil and Gas business but you also inherited time consuming, error prone invoicing of thousands of transactions per month.
Inherited processes involved days of transaction checking before invoicing but there were still too many errors. The contract required a monthly audit of randomly selected transactions and errors required credit of the full transaction ….so mistakes were costly!
The customer had little faith in transactions and spent nearly 4 days per month checking invoices before approving them. Monthly volume reporting which took hours to prepare didn’t improve trust!
THAT WAS THEN.
NOW transactions are STILL managed via Excel but processes have changed resulting in significantly reduced data entry time. The days of transaction checking before invoicing are long gone. Errors are now rare. The customer now spends under 4 hours checking and approving cost coded invoices each month.
Monthly volume reporting is now automatic, accurate, reliable and the customer loves it.
YOUR EXCEL HORROR STORY CAN BE TURNED INTO A SUCCESS TOO.
