Clients told us they needed a more efficient way to manage the payables review process.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) May 01, 2012
Central Consulting Group (CCG), a Deltek Premier Partner, is pleased to introduce CCG Payables Approval & Tracking, a software product that makes it easier for architecture and engineering firms to review and track subcontractor invoices and other payables.
“Clients told us they needed a more efficient way to manage the payables review process,” said Steve Stolz, CCG Partner. “We created a product that allows firms to scan their incoming paper invoices and create electronic versions, which can be viewed and marked-up by reviewers easily and quickly on their desktops, “ he said.
The product’s potential to increase efficiency was a key reason Birdsall Services Group chose to serve as a beta site. “We used to route hard copies of vendor invoices and backup documentation to reviewers, and many of the papers would get lost,” said Dianne Seymour, Vice President and Director of MIS for Birdsall, a New Jersey-based engineering firm that processes nearly 8,000 invoices annually. “With CCG Payables Approval & Tracking, nothing gets lost,” she said. “The system notifies reviewers when invoices are ready for them to approve. They simply login and can view invoices for each project alongside the contract to compare actual vs. estimated costs.”
There are customer service and cost-saving benefits, too, according to Seymour. “If a client has a question about a subcontractor fee we billed, we can quickly go into the system, find the subcontractor’s invoice and see the billing detail. With our old system, we had paper invoices filed away offsite and it could take quite a while to locate the correct invoice. With CCG Payables Approval & Tracking, we don’t need to save paper invoices, so it eliminates the cost of offsite storage.” Another attractive benefit, Seymour said, is that the paperless process supports the firm’s sustainability efforts.
Like all of CCG’s proprietary products, CCG Payables Approval & Tracking integrates seamlessly with Deltek Vision.
