Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) September 04, 2014
First Tech Federal Credit Union recently selected Verian’s cloud-based, purchase-to-pay suite. The First Tech system, which has close to 1,000 end users, was implemented in less than 90 days. The implementation included multiple Verian software modules and ten unique system integrations.
With headquarters in Mountain View, California, First Tech is a federally-chartered credit union that has over 375,000 members and assets of $6.5 billion, with 40 branches situated mostly in high tech business centers located on the West Coast. First Tech serves employees of the world’s most forward-thinking technology companies, including HP, Microsoft, Agilent Technologies, Amazon, Cisco and many more.
First Tech is using Verian's Expense Manager, Invoice Manager, and Purchase Manager to integrate and centralize procurement processes. This has resulted in seamless and paperless workflow throughout purchasing and accounts payable operations.
Verian was selected to accomplish First Tech’s clearly defined purchase-to-pay objectives:
- Increase efficiency and effectiveness of all departments, including cross-functional efforts
- Strengthen business controls and enhance organizational compliance
- Deliver a structured procurement process that increases spend under management
- Reduce indirect costs, increase electronic payments, and bolster supplier relationships
- Enhance management’s visibility and reporting of spending with vendors
First Tech professionals say user adoption of the system has been accelerated by Verian’s user interface, practical executive dashboards and mobile capabilities.
“We’re very excited about the launch of the First Tech system,” said Tehseen Ali Dahya, President and CEO of Verian. “It’s one of Verian’s largest 90-day implementations yet, and it represents the focus on speed to ROI that Verian strives to deliver to all of our customers.”
