Importance of Account Payable Services For SMEs

Managing the partnerships a company has with suppliers and vendors is challenging. The more vendors you have, the more at-risk you are for costly errors in your accounts payable process.

Once your business grows, the complications that come with managing your accounts payable process in-house will surely slow down the growth of your business. 

If your business handles sensitive financial information, accounts payable process that isn’t high-functioning can turn into a liability for your business to handle. It can become a bottleneck and slow everything down.

 

A Success Story On Our Accounts Payable Business Process Outsourcing

Outsourcing accounts payable allows businesses to focus on more complex requirements within their organization. It also ensures that creditor payments are accurate and up-to-date so that you know exactly what your financial position looks like.

Magellan Solutions shares one of our stories that proves its effectiveness for SMEs and even bigger corporations.

Customer need A US-based e-logistics / transportation management services provider. They have a customer base of 2500 customers and 100,000 trucks. They were looking for a vendor that could process its transaction documents in a cost-effective manner.
Challenge A robust cash flow system had to be set up for the customer. This is so that they can regulate the processing of the customer’s transaction documents (invoice proof of delivery, bill of lading, etc.).

The most challenging task was to process the document on the same day and process the payment on the following day.

How We Solved The Problem Magellan Solutions’ accounting professionals studied the customer’s business process and operational needs. Then the team identified the different types of paperwork involved in the whole process and listed the different kinds of transactions.

Based on the type of transaction, all the key information related to a transaction was recorded. This helped in reducing additional costs related to the process. A detailed process document was developed by our team. It explained the classification of each transaction, along with the related documents.

The primary task of reducing the high number of escalations was achieved, thanks to the outstanding way of managing customer queries, by our team.

Besides, the suggestions we offered to improve client relationships proved to be successful for the customer.
