Middleton, WI — September 5, 2017 — Esker, a worldwide leader in document process automation solutions and pioneer in cloud computing, today announced it is working with Groupe CHÂTEL, a French transportation and logistics company, to automate an annual volume of 20,000 supplier invoices. Esker’s cloud-based Accounts Payable solution has enabled Groupe CHÂTEL to process invoices faster and more efficiently.
Prior to Esker, Groupe CHÂTEL was manually processing supplier invoices from its 10 businesses across seven locations. This proved to be a difficult and often error-prone job for the company’s six-person accounting team, which was based at company headquarters in Vire. The AP staff faced multiple challenges, including:
- Lack of control and security over invoice registration, including risk of duplicate payment
- Lengthy invoice processing time due to the distance between sites and often laborious routing process, resulting in invoice registration delays of up to 15 days
- Lack of internal invoice traceability and visibility in the approval process
- Poor workload distribution
