RPA Streamlines Accounts Payable Process with 75% Efficiency & $75,000 in Annual Savings

CASE STUDY

rpa

Maruti Techlabs’ client is a premier CX management company providing end-to-end Customer Lifecycle Management services along with Business Process Services such as HRO, FAO, Analytics, and Business Process Audit services across verticals such as Banking, Financial Services, Insurance, Telecom & Media, Manufacturing, Retail, and Government. 

The client serves over 100 marquee clients, with a 25000+ strong workforce from 30+ delivery locations.

Challenge

Efficiency in Accounts Payable is paramount to minimizing errors around invoicing and reducing operational expenses. The client’s AP team receives thousands of invoices every month from different suppliers and vendors, with each invoice having a unique format of its own. 

A team of 7 FTEs was fully involved in manually processing all 4000+ invoices monthly. Each employee would spend close to 3 minutes going through each invoice in a PDF format and extracting the following data - 

○ Supplier/Vendor Name
○ Invoice Date
○ Due Date
○ GST Number
○ TAX Number
Invoice Amount
Billing Address
Description


The job of extracting data from each invoice individually and entering it into an invoice processing application like Quickbooks is repetitive. The formats' uniqueness makes the template-based automation or “if-then-else” approach not only tricky but expensive to program. Introducing AI solutions would not prove to be cost-effective either.

Let automation take care of your repetitive back-office tasks. Boost productivity & accuracy with RPA. 

"The highly successful RPA pilot showed us that there’s much opportunity to rethink and assess end to end processes, which we can automate and streamline, for better business outcomes.”

Maruti techlabs Development Process

How We Work? 

Analyse
The first step is to analyse the process that requires automation and select the right tools for its implementation. The aim is to determine the process lifetime, usage criteria, cost benefit and overall feasibility of the project.

UI Design

Authorize 
Based on the analysis, a PoC is developed to determine the financial model, estimated ROI, bot design process, along with the documentation and data required to create the automated flow. At this stage, the company or project head ultimately decides whether or not to authorize this case for deployment. 

Deployment

Apply 
This is where the real application of design & development comes together. After identifying the procedure of implementation, the risks as well as costs involved, the bot is created to automate time-consuming, repetitive processes after a series of reruns and rigorous testing. 

Testing

Actualize 
It is now time to release the bot into the larger business system to work with employees. Interactions are monitored from hereon & based on the feedback received, the maintenance process follows. Automation reports keep you informed, each time automation is done.
