As the largest distributor of fresh produce in the country, this client’s network of 34 distribution centers was having trouble processing customer invoices efficiently. They were lacking both the labor resources and necessary processes and procedures to handle large volumes of invoice processing.
Their current invoice system involved transporting physical invoices, which are being produced by each distribution hub, to the appropriate invoicing center for further processing. This operation was proving to be financially unsustainable and prone to error, so they were eager to implement a solution that could significantly lower their processing costs and help them provide faster, more effective customer service.
In order to enhance this customer’s existing invoice processing system and improve their customer service, we implemented our digital conversion and storage solutions to address those business objectives. First, we scheduled and executed the pick-ups of their invoices from each distribution center and brought them to our regional record storage facilities. With our strong national presence and dedicated operations teams, we were able to coordinate the retrieval and delivery of over 5 million invoices to our multiple and geographically-dispersed scanning locations. After our imaging teams had completed the scanning process, scanned files were uploaded onto our cloud based digital repository for immediate online viewing by employees or by customers. In terms of the physical invoices that were scanned, they were securely stored within our state-of-the-art facilities. Shortly after completing this initial invoice conversion project, we continued scanning approximately 70,000 invoices per month for each respective distribution center.
