Foodstuffs North Island digitizes invoice processing with OpenText to drive Accounts Payable efficiency

Nationwide grocery co-operative streamlines supply chain and achieves cost savings with OpenText Suite for SAP

There is absolutely no way the team could handle processing if the OpenText solution was not in place. They would not be able to keep up with the volume of work manually. We need the automatic flow rate to stay where it is because we don’t even have to look at 90 percent of incoming documents. We couldn’t pick up that volume overnight if the system went down, so we are highly dependent on it. It’s now a business-critical process.
