Business Case Story

Under normal circumstances, suppliers send their goods packed up in metal containers to the production plants. These containers are property of the manufacturer’s plants which receive the shipment. However, it is quite common for the plants to be unable to lease out the desired number of containers to the suppliers, which forces the latter to pack up the goods wrapped in cardboards.

This results in additional costs which are initially covered by the suppliers but can be reimbursed if specific criteria are met. The process requires a thorough lookup whether the cardboard invoices sent by the suppliers to the manufacturer are eligible for repayment. It is a sophisticated process involving the usage of multiple systems.

Customer’s objectives:

  • End-to-end automation of the business process.
  • Reduce the probability for errors due to the complexity of the process.
  • Streamline and summarize the results of the validation.
