Challenge

Costs are a critical factor in the industrial and manufacturing sector. This company decided to realize savings by downsizing its accounts payable staff and outsourcing the recovery audit function. A data-driven Six Sigma initiative was launched to ensure continuous operational improvements during a time of transition and change.

Solution

APEX Analytix helped the company maximize the productivity of its smaller accounts payable team by providing comprehensive support. We delivered recovery audit services to identity and recoup overpayments and a Vendor Risk Analysis to assist in detecting fraud. APEX Analytix FirstStrike® software was used both as an automated recovery audit tool and to deliver continuous, ongoing protection against payment errors.

Results

APEX Analytix produced significant results that have made a positive impact on the company’s bottom line:

  • Prevented more than $20 million in overpayments to date
  • Recovered $4.3 million in past overpayments
  • Provided executives with ready access to reports and performance data to support their Six Sigma initiatives
  • Made recommendations for augmenting internal controls to prevent future disbursement errors
