Shared by Chai • November 02, 2023

Hi there,

Efficiency Leaders is thrilled to announce our latest collaboration, as St John Ambulance NSW joins our family of clients. This marks an exciting new chapter in our mission to streamline and centralise accounts payable processes. St John Ambulance NSW has chosen RapidAP, our innovative AP automation solution, to simplify and enhance its operations.

Revolutionising AP Processes at St John Ambulance NSW

Currently, St John Ambulance NSW manages its invoices manually within a decentralised environment, using SAP Business One. This means that invoices are distributed across 75 sites for coding and approval, a process that's not only time-consuming but also susceptible to inefficiencies and potential errors.

The introduction of RapidAP is set to bring about significant positive changes:

Enhanced Visibility: St John will now have complete visibility into the lifecycle of every invoice, making tracking and management easier than ever.

Reduced Data Entry: Manual data entry will be drastically reduced, allowing staff to focus on more strategic tasks.

Best Practices: The implementation of RapidAP will help St John Ambulance NSW develop best practices for their AP processes.

Centralisation: The entire process will be centralised, simplifying and streamlining operations.

Compliance: RapidAP will strengthen compliance, ensuring that every step in the process adheres to the necessary guidelines.

Time and Cost Savings: The new system will save time and reduce costs associated with the invoice processes.

Approval Process Enforcement: Correct approval processes will be enforced consistently.

Knowledge Transfer: The solution will facilitate knowledge transfer, reducing dependence on key staff members.

Enhanced Security: RapidAP will enhance security measures, including fraud detection.

Gratitude and Future Focus

Efficiency Leaders extends heartfelt thanks to all the key players including Mandar Kulkarni, Dan Bennett, Toni Caporale, and Gavin O’kane who made this collaboration happen.

We are excited to be part of St John's transformation and look forward to a productive and rewarding partnership. Together, we are poised to bring unprecedented efficiency, security, and effectiveness to St John Ambulance NSW's vital operations.

Hi there,

Efficiency Leaders is thrilled to announce an exciting addition to our ever-expanding family of satisfied clients – Moorabool Shire Council has selected RapidAP, our cutting-edge Accounts Payable (AP) automation software, in collaboration with our esteemed partner, Atturra.

Moorabool Shire Council, a local council situated in the heart of Victoria, Australia, is home to a vibrant community of over 30,000 residents. The council's previous AP process was labour-intensive, involving the manual handling of a significant volume of invoices. This time-consuming method included the printing of invoices for verification and data entry, communication through emails and phone calls with suppliers, and using SharePoint for downstream management and approvals. Additionally, it required several rounds of manual reviews to ensure accuracy and compliance.

So, what prompted the Moorabool Shire Council to choose RapidAP?

  1. A Paperless Transformation: RapidAP provides Moorabool Shire Council with the opportunity to bid farewell to paper-based processes, resulting in substantial cost savings and environmental benefits.
  2. Unparalleled Visibility: The software offers end-to-end visibility throughout the invoice lifecycle, ensuring transparency and control at every stage.
  3. Streamlined Workflows: RapidAP minimises manual intervention and verification by staff members, freeing up valuable time and resources.
  4. Combatting Fraud and Exceptions: The software empowers the council with robust controls to mitigate the risk of fraud and efficiently manage exceptions.
  5. Reducing Technology Debt: Moorabool Shire Council is making a forward-looking investment in its technological infrastructure, significantly reducing technology debt.
  6. Future-Proofing with PEPPOL: RapidAP aligns with Moorabool's future aspirations, integrating seamlessly with PEPPOL standards and our innovative roadmap.
  7. Trusted Partnerships: The council's established relationship with Atturra adds a layer of trust and familiarity to the project.

With the project already underway, the integration of RapidAP into their TechnologyOne ERP system is set to revolutionise Moorabool Shire Council's AP operations. This partnership marks a significant step forward in their pursuit of efficiency, accuracy, and modernisation.

Efficiency Leaders is proud to be the driving force behind Moorabool Shire Council's commitment to efficiency and automation. We look forward to witnessing the transformation and success that RapidAP will bring to their AP processes.

Amart Furniture Partners with Efficiency Leaders for AP Automation Transformation

Shared by Chai • September 12, 2023

Hi there,

Efficiency Leaders is delighted to announce its latest partnership with Amart Furniture, a leading Australian furniture retailer with 67 stores nationwide. This collaboration aims to transform Amart Furniture’s Accounts Payable (AP) process through the implementation of RapidAP, our advanced AP automation system.

Amart Furniture, formerly known as Super Amart, processes a staggering 72,000 invoices annually, a business that often presents significant challenges in terms of efficiency and accuracy. The adoption of RapidAP is expected to simplify this process and improve the handling of stock and expense invoices. The system will perform line-item extraction and reconciliation to increase accuracy in invoice management. Additionally, RapidAP will facilitate a unified workflow for invoice approval and coding, making the entire process more efficient and transparent.

Furthermore, Amart Furniture has chosen to implement the RapidAP vendor onboarding and Purchase Order (PO) requisition module to further enhance its Procure-to-Pay (P2P) process. This approach will address various aspects of the project. For instance, more than 100 approvers will be involved in interacting with the system and ensuring that all their AP programs are updated.

The journey of Efficiency Leaders with Amart Furniture to achieve this milestone is nothing short of remarkable. After two years of sustained effort, the company's sales and logistics teams worked closely to understand Amart's existing systems, analyze potential risks, and optimize RapidAP to effectively process a Request for Quotation (RFQ).

This partnership is not just a step forward for Amart Furniture but also a testament to Efficiency Leaders’ resilience and flexibility in business process automation. The collaboration will not only enhance Amart Furniture's AP processes but also demonstrate the capabilities of advanced automation technologies like RapidAP.
