AP System That Cuts the Process Cycle in Half
- 50% improvement on invoice process cycle times
- 80% cost reduction in costs associated with A/P
- Over $1MM in annual savings
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.

Streamlining Years of Multi-System Back Office Processes
International gaming and hospitality company needed to centralize the distinct Accounts Payable processes from their various resort and hotel properties and casinos. ICG assisted 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.
Big Results Across The Entire Back End
- Automation reduces invoice touching by 70%
- 65% of vendor disputes handled through portal instead of phone calls
- 35% improvement in support costs
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. Visit US.Foods website and see what they are up to today.
