Smart Purchase-to-Pay Solution

IRIS Partner: Canon UK

Enabling growth through process optimization in the Accounts Payable department

Kew Electrical is an electrical wholesaler in the UK. As their business was growing, their staff felt like they couldn’t cope with the thousands of invoices they received for processing every week from their suppliers.

Canon proposed them a Purchase-to-Pay solution based on the IRISXtract™ invoice process optimization solution. They can now digitize the invoice information and process them automatically. It has reduced the invoice processing time drastically and enabled them to focus on more value-added tasks.

Looking toward the future, they now have an Accounts Payable solution that will improve the efficiency and speed of invoice processing, and assist them in their growth.

The whole thing is just working so much better now. The information is into the system so much quicker. We are able to produce management accounts so much quicker. Which is obviously very important to a business of our size.
Geoff Kerly, Founder, Kew Electrical

I’m very happy with the decision I’ve made and the whole Canon team has been very helpful. Going forward, it’s going to assist in our growth. We can improve the process and the speed of the process, and generally make the business more efficient.
