Hijos de Juan de Garay Saves 40% on Invoice Management Using Esker’s SAP® Environment Solution

Esker, a worldwide leader in document process automation solutions, today announced that it is working on a project with Hijos de Juan de Garay to manage the company’s accounts payable (AP) processes, with the goal of streamlining AP for better control and increased visibility.

Hijos de Juan de Garay, based in Guipuzcoa Province of Spain, manufactures components and equipment for the automotive industry. The company processes around 1,000 invoices per month, some that can have as many as 70 line items. Until now, the data capture process was largely paper-based, relying on one full-time employee and one part-time employee to handle all of the manual duties. Managing these invoices made for very stressful and complicated month-end closings.

Results after implementation

Operating in an SAP® environment, the Esker solution is able to: scan the paper invoice; extract the invoice data using OCR technology; review the data using a workflow validation process outside of the SAP system; compare the findings against a master reference list; finalize the information; and enter the accounting record in SAP. The entire process now requires only one employee to approve the invoices, and can then dedicate the rest of his or her time to other value-added administrative functions.

As a result, Hijos de Juan de Garay achieved savings of 40 percent in its invoice management, with the goal of increasing its savings to 70 percent as its validation process becomes more straightforward. These savings are further reflected in zero document loss and reduced management time, which speeds up other administrative processes and optimizes dedicated resources.

“We needed a solution to help us streamline our complex process of managing and approving individual supplier invoices so that we can post them in the SAP accounting system,” said Miguel Antona, Director of IT at Hijos de Juan de Garay.Esker helps us not only by automating our documents, but also by forcing us to improve our document flow management process so we can achieve our target efficiency ratios.”

Paper reduction

In addition, Hijos de Juan de Garay is open to digitizing, and thereby eliminating, all of its paper using Esker’s technology, which is certified in Spain, including the Basque Country. The amount of paper saved due to reduced photocopying of invoices alone is enough to eliminate enough paper in a year to save one tree, 1,291 liters of water, 200 kW of energy, and 124 kg of CO2 emissions.
