Esker, a worldwide leader in document process automation solutions and pioneer in cloud computing, today announced it is working with SES, a Swiss electricity supply company, to automate its accounts payable (AP) process. Esker’s accounts payable automation solution has enabled SES to speed up its invoice process, increase efficiency and optimise internal resources.
Prior to Esker, SES manually processed its supplier invoices, which led to limited process visibility, lost invoices, delays in internal workflow and management difficulties. The company’s 10,000 annual invoices needed to be printed and submitted for approval — both in the invoice booking in SES’s SAP® system and in the payment approval phase — resulting in further delays. SES was looking for a solution that would make its AP process faster and more fluid, as well as improve internal resources.
In addition to faster data entry and significantly reduced invoice approval times, Esker delivers real-time process visibility, monitoring and reporting capabilities. Thanks to Esker’s AI-driven technology and machine-learning capabilities, supplier invoices, once received, are automatically sent to Esker for processing and entered into the necessary workflow for approval. Seamlessly integrated with SAP, Esker’s AP solution was implemented rapidly and was up and running at once.
