How Dice transformed a client’s AP workflow

Managing accounts payable (AP) efficiently is crucial for financial health. Our client, a global leader in AP automation, struggled with invoice data accuracy due to varying formats and languages. With Dice’s expertise, they achieved remarkable improvements in accuracy and efficiency, setting a new standard in AP automation.

The Client and Their Needs

About the Client

Our client offers a comprehensive cloud-based payables automation platform designed to streamline every aspect of the AP and payment management workflow. This all-in-one solution includes supplier onboarding and vetting, tax and regulatory compliance, invoice processing, multi-currency and multi-method supplier payments, payment status updates, and payment reconciliation and reporting. Their goal is to simplify AP operations for accounts payable departments, enabling them to manage their entire supplier payments operation seamlessly.

Challenges Faced

Despite their robust platform, the client struggled with the precision of optical character recognition (OCR) technology in capturing invoice data. The OCR software had difficulty processing the vast range and variety of invoice and bill formats, leading to inaccuracies. Additionally, as a global provider, they received invoices in multiple languages, further complicating the OCR system’s ability to accurately process these documents. The client needed a solution that could ensure near-perfect invoice capture accuracy to maintain their service level and expand their global operations.

Detailed Process of Transformation

Initial Assessment and Customization

The transformation began with an in-depth assessment of the client’s existing AP workflow. Dice’s team of experts worked closely with the client to understand the specific challenges and requirements. This included analyzing the types of invoices received, the languages involved, and the existing OCR system’s performance. Based on this assessment, Dice customized their approach to address the unique needs of the client, ensuring a tailored solution that would integrate seamlessly with their current processes.

Implementation of Human Validation

One of the key innovations introduced by Dice was the implementation of a human validation layer. While OCR technology can process large volumes of documents quickly, it often struggles with accuracy when faced with diverse formats and languages. Dice’s solution involved a team of skilled professionals who reviewed and corrected the OCR-captured data. This human touch ensured that any errors were promptly identified and corrected, significantly boosting the accuracy of invoice processing.

Localization and Multilingual Processing

Handling invoices in multiple languages was a significant hurdle for the client. Dice leveraged its localization expertise to overcome this challenge. The team included linguists proficient in various languages, ensuring that invoices were accurately interpreted and processed regardless of their origin. This capability was crucial for the client’s global operations, allowing them to maintain consistency and accuracy across different regions.

Comprehensive Support Services

Beyond invoice processing, Dice provided extensive support services that were vital to the client’s success. This included customer service support to handle inquiries and issues promptly, implementation support to ensure smooth integration of new processes, and network monitoring to maintain system reliability and performance. These support services allowed the client to focus on expanding their customer base and enhancing their core offerings, knowing that their operational functions were in good hands.

Continuous Improvement and Scalability

Dice’s approach was not a one-time fix but a continuous improvement process. Regular reviews and updates ensured that the system adapted to new challenges and maintained high performance. The scalability of Dice’s solutions was another critical factor, allowing the client to scale their operations efficiently as their customer base grew. This adaptability ensured that the client’s AP workflow remained robust and reliable, even as their business expanded globally.
