"Business as usual" creates overpayments

Overpayments happen in the whole procure-to-pay cycle. It isn't just an AP problem.



Increase in duplicate payment recoveries because of an e-invoicing deployment.

After implementing a new e-invoicing solution, duplicate payments spiked when suppliers were figuring out the new system.


Reasons for unkown statement credits and other hidden funds.

75% of total overpayments recovered in an AP audit are found in the vendor statement review. Many of them originate outside of Accounts Payable.



Average value of a recovery audit lost every year it is delayed.

We analyzed $4.5 trillion in spend and discovered the cost of delaying your audit - you lose 23% for each year you wait.


Earning client and supplier trust, recovering every overpayment.

“I was very skeptical of having somebody come in and talk to my suppliers. But the results were amazing.


This was a professional approach.  It was data-driven. The supplier community didn’t balk, and most of all, our stakeholder community didn’t balk. And they loved the money.”

Gerard Cardillo, Chief Procurement Officer, Charles River Labs
