first strike

Check yourself before you wreck yourself.

$2M per billion in spend, that’s how many overpayments slip through normal ERP controls.

firststrike catches them.

"Prevent millions from going out the door"

Go way beyond ERP based controls to catch and recover overpayments that you don't even know are happening.

Duplicate payments, invoice outliers, and invoice exceptions slip through every ERP without firststrike. We are not exaggerating. Hear from our clients.
