With annual disbursements in excess of $1 billion, executives knew there were ample opportunities for payment errors that could take a toll on the firm’s profits. They also knew the value technology could bring to critical business processes and hoped to find a software-enabled solution that would deliver the protection they needed.
After a thorough analysis of options, executives adopted the apexanalytix firststrike® platform for continuous protection against disbursement errors. They decided to complement their new software with regular disbursement audits conducted by apexanalytix experts.
An audit of 150,000-plus invoices and over $1 billion in annual disbursements uncovered just one duplicate payment—attributed to a team member overriding a warning of a possible duplicate.
• firststrike analytics helped the firm totally eliminate duplicate payment losses associated with:
- inconsistent invoice coding
- inconsistent invoice dates
- multiple related vendors
- invoices paid on multiple payment platforms.
