One of the top energy services companies in the Southeast is implementing Verian purchase-to-pay (P2P) software solutions to simplify and automate how they pay contractors who maintain their natural gas distribution system. Resulting benefits for the industry leader include streamlined supply orders and invoicing, improved accuracy and speed of accounting, and better overall insight into vendor performance.
In the past, field contractors for the company were required to use three different systems for every job. One system was used to order materials, one to create a work order, and yet another to enter weekly reports logging the materials and labor from the work order. Reports then had to be reconciled by field managers to verify the accuracy of charges, and again by corporate headquarters to calculate accruals.
