Finance and Accounting staff spent several hours administering time-consuming and manual procedures for generating Purchase Orders (P.O.) and invoices in their ERP system, as well as email-based and manual approval processes and contact with suppliers and customers. Additionally, these manual processes were difficult for new recruits within the department to understand and implement, and were prone to human mistakes and omissions.

Rapid and Accurate Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Solution

The Accounting and Finance team recorded the step-by-step procedures for creating, modifying, and canceling purchase orders and invoices in a word document, and everyone on the team followed those steps and procedures on a regular basis. The specified processes were cumbersome and necessitated several manual steps and time-consuming chores to complete. The Accounting and Finance team desired an optimized and automated solution that would improve work speed and accuracy while eliminating manual and time-consuming procedures.

Optimum’s trained RPA developers examined the operations and made recommendations for process optimization, as well as data input templates for standardizing the process and data intake. We then used Nintex’s RPA system to automate the whole purchase order and invoice production, approval, and modification/cancellation procedures. This RPA solution employs conventional Excel data entry templates, performs all activities and stages specified in the procedures, and communicates with the company’s ERP system to produce, approve, and amend purchase orders and invoices. Additionally, the RPA system offers warnings and notifications to the Accounting and Finance teams in the event of data mistakes or process deviations.

Project Outcome

The P.O and Invoice generation and approval process is streamlined and automated saving many administrative hours for the Accounting and Finance team members and reducing the chance of errors and omissions in the process. This RPA-based automation has resulted in increased efficiency and productivity of the Accounting and Finance department and improved internal and vendor/customer collaboration.
