The Midas Group expects to save at least £60,000 per annum in processing costs, resulting from using the integrated ReadSoft invoice automation product alongside RedSky's Summit solution. The software scans all incoming invoices, regardless of their format, extracts the relevant data and automatically feeds this information into the workflow system. The accounts function now has total visibility of the whole process from receipt of the paper invoice to payment. This has dramatically reduced the amount of time members of the Accounts Payable team spend resolving internal queries.
The Knight Group estimates that it will save £25,000 a year, following the investment in both the Summit 2000 financial accounts solution and the Xchange e-procurement solution from RedSky. These significant cost savings occur by saving time, reducing the amount of errors and ultimately reducing the cost in the buying process.
