Love’s has a highly sophisticated AP Automation and Workflow system with customized routing rules that range from the simple to more complex based on Love’s specific needs.  Love’s processes over 350,000 Non-PO invoices a year through ICG’s Approval Workflow system.  The invoices are obtained via EDI, Email, and Paper which are all imported assembled and imported into the Workflow system utilizing ICG’s advanced Data Capture and Document Assembly solution. Love’s also utilizes ICG’s online PCard and Out of Pocket Expense Report Tools. These applications allow employees to submit online Expense Reports that contain PCard Transactions, Out of Pocket Transactions, or a hybrid of both.  Specific rules have been implemented which allow for automated calculations for transactions such as mileage rates and per diem allowances.  Love’s currently processes close to 500,000 PCard transactions per year for 2,300+ card holders and over 100,000 Out of Pocket transactions annually. In addition to the types of AP transactions mentioned above, Love’s was also looking for a way to streamline the matching process for invoices associated with their Tire Care business.  ICG configured an additional workflow with automation to pair invoices received in from vendors via EDI against order data received from Love’s systems.  By implementing this technology Love’s only requires 3 FTE to handle processing of over 45,000 transactions on average each month. This automation requires integrations across numerous systems including the Love’s SAP ERP Platform as well as OpenText, their document management system.   Some of the other automation includes interfaces with Bank of America and Service Channel as well as customized integrations with some of Love’s other systems. Love’s is currently in the process of implementing Vendor Portal and Vendor Onboarding solutions from ICG.

ICG helped Duke Energy realize an acceleration of their AP centralization of 86 locations, while also garnering a 50% improvement on invoice process cycle times by implementing our comprehensive suite of AP Automation and Workflow Management solutions. Our consulting and best practices services in training and research times associated with AP transactions helped reduce costs in this area by over 80%. This contributed to an overall savings of over $1MM annually.  After the initial AP Automation implementation Duke Energy made several large acquisitions of other utilities and absorbed that processing into their centralized processing with very little added AP cost.  ICG has since added a number of complimentary solutions to further Duke’s vendor self-service initiatives including Vendor Portal for invoice submit and payment inquiry as well as a robust RFQ and Purchase Order Dispatch and Update application via the supplier portal.  Contact ICG today for more information or request a demo of our comprehensive business process solutions.

MGM Resorts International needed to centralize the distinct Accounts Payable processes from their various resort and hotel properties and casinos. ICG assisted MGM in standardizing and centralizing their processing infrastructure, complete with our comprehensive AP Automation suite of solutions including our workflow and business rules processing. This resulted in a 45% improvement in processing efficiency on over 1M invoices annually and they were able to take on a major acquisition without increasing staff for AP processing.  After implementing the AP automation for all their PO and non-PO based accounts payables we implemented a vendor portal to begin the process of transitioning non-value add activities back to the vendors.

We assisted US Foods in centralizing their A/P, A/R, and Credit & Collections functions. The net result was a 300% increase in processing workloads without adding any staff. This increase in production was coupled with a marked decrease in cost per transaction (from $4.50 per transaction to under $1.20). Today 70% of their vendor invoices are processed without human intervention and as a result, corporate interest earnings improved by $6-7MM.

It doesn’t end there. After a 300% increase in processing efficiencies across various back-office functions, USF turned its attention on increasing self-service functionality for its 40K+ vendor population. Within one month of launch, 7000 vendors were on-board with an astounding 65% of disputes being entered via the A/P portal instead of through time-consuming phone calls (this will work out to over 700,000 vendor inquiries in this year alone.) As a direct result, the A/P supplier portal we implemented has delivered a 35% improvement in support costs.

US Foods serves over 250K customers from 60 locations.
