Canon Improves Bank's Accounts Payable Process and Delivers Cost Savings


One of the nation's leading commercial banks faced a major challenge: for several consecutive years the bank failed Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) audits. A high number of audit findings indicated that new accounts payable processes and procedures were needed to turn the situation around.

This included improving the operational efficiency of the bank’s accounts payable process while reducing costs. Of the approximately 18,000 invoices the bank receives monthly, about 10,000 are purchase order invoices that are received in electronic format, and the other 8,000 are non-PO paper invoices received via mail. The bank realized it could reduce the cost and cycle time of its non-PO invoice process by integrating it with the automated workflow system that handles the bank’s electronic invoices. With all of the invoices processed electronically in one system, the bank could potentially improve operational efficiency, increase on-time payment, reduce costs and improve its SOX compliance.

Top performing accounts payable outsourcing services

Canon offered the expertise the bank required. This included providing accounts payable services and technology that could help the bank integrate its paper and electronic invoice processing along with the support necessary to evolve the bank’s accounts payable function from high risk to high value. With the new approach, the bank now has a system that includes the centralized receipt of invoices, automated workflow for processing the invoices, improved procedures for managing exceptions and enhanced overall AP processing ability.

A high number of audit findings indicated that new AP processes and procedures were needed to turn the situation around.
