A major international pharmaceutical manufacturer, had for years operated on a relatively modest scale in Canada. The firm then entered a growth mode, acquiring new operating units that added to its complexity and placed new demands on its shared services centre resources including management of Accounts Payable. With ACI’s help, the firm was quick to see how document imaging would allow it to better cope with growth. ACI provided the scanning and indexing services for their accounts payable documents, allowing users to access these documents locally. While this solution produced major productivity gains in terms of the elimination of manual filing and faster document retrieval, the firm was still open to new methods that might improve its overall management of its Accounts Payable in an environment of growth.
By storing the organization’s accounts payable information on ACI’s image warehouse servers, authorized users in the organization’s many business units can instantly access required accounts payable information via the Internet.
