Real Stories of Autonomous AP_cover

OpenEnvoy turns Accounts Payables of manufacturing companies into fully autonomous operations.

This is a collection of customer stories.  But first, some context.

OpenEnvoy was created to meet the high-volume and complex needs of Accounts Payable in manufacturing companies. 

We collaborate with Controllers to free AP departments from laborious, error-prone clerical work, and a lack of controls and automation for complex scenarios like BOM, partial payments, and demurrage. 

Manufacturing companies choose OpenEnvoy because our AI-driven solution offers faster and more accurate automation than any other option available. Fraud, over-billings, and duplicate payments are completely eradicated as OpenEnvoy establishes end-to-end controls previously unattainable.

What sets us apart is not only our high performance but also the ease of integrating and customizing our solutions. Our integrations are swift and hassle-free, often completed in weeks rather than months or years, and require no heavy lifting from IT departments. We seamlessly connect with any ERP, whether in the cloud or on-premises, without nickel-and-diming on integrations. Our solutions are fully customizable to meet the unique needs of manufacturing and freight use cases.

AP teams thrive from the moment they onboard, with fast and painless implementation. Our system handles all the heavy lifting, ensuring continuous benefits for years to come.

Here are some stories from our customers benefiting from Modern AP Automation..

Raneys Industry 2

Raney’s Truck Parts is an aftermarket parts and accessories provider for the heavy-duty trucking industry. In this competitive market, it’s critical to remain lean in Finance while avoiding excess costs from supplier overbilling.

With OpenEnvoy we’ve been able to scale touchless processing without the burden of ‘no PO no Pay.’ We’ve been able to shift team members from manual clerical work to proactively disputing overbillings and pursuing other ways to hit the goals of our growing business.”

Scoular Industry 2

Since its founding in 1892, Scoular has been defining the global supply chain for agribusiness. They are the second-largest container exporter of agricultural commodities. 

While the company stands as a global leader in connecting agriculture supply and demand, they were challenged with processing variable cost freight invoices at scale. By leveraging a full-forensic audit down to the line-item level, the team can pinpoint invoice overbillings or variances before payment, enabling them to connect with providers immediately and resolve issues in real -time.

We are now able to concentrate on the issues rather than doing redundant tasks. Our staff can focus on issues that OpenEnvoy highlights for us. Eliminating manual tasks is a plus for everyone.”

“AP real-time auditing solutions allow organizations to validate whether a payable is accurate and genuine without the need for manual review.

Companies deploying these solutions find that they typically pay for themselves within a year of use.

Cash is difficult to get back once it is paid out, and in the case of fraud, may be impossible."
