Case Study: Invoice Capture Enables Wigan Council to Drive Down Costs
Wigan Council, a Unitary local authority serving approximately 318,00 citizens, was exploring further automation within the Finance Department aimed at reducing costs and improving Accounts Payable (AP) efficiency.
An automated solution, Invoice Capture
– now streamlines the processes of invoice receipt and approval and reduces the manual intervention.
The results and value delivered from the implementation of the solutions speak for themselves and include:
- 40% efficiency savings with increasing control and visibility
- Over £120,000 in annualised invoice processing cost savings
- Achieved process transformation while cutting costs and complexity
“We were upgrading our Unit4 Business World ERP system and centralising our AP function with the aim of automating our Purchase-to-Pay (P2P) process, which was drawn out and dominated by paper and inefficient manual methods. The PROACTIS solution integrated well with our Unit 4 Business World system to deliver efficiency savings of over 40%
