An established FMCG organisation based in South Africa was running a time-consuming, manual process to manage pricing claims. Employees needed to capture the details of each claim on a spreadsheet, retrieve and print the proof of delivery slip, and then compile claims into batches of 20, before sending them to the accounts receivable manager to review. Documents went missing at times, employees were frustrated by the tedium and the loss of time, and there were often long delays between a transaction and the settlement of the claim.
Since this leading FMCG organisation was already using the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software on processes including scanning, storing and managing proofs of delivery, KYOCERA proposed leveraging this existing solution to streamline pricing claim approvals. This would enable them to address its challenges through a solutionthat could be implemented rapidly and at a relatively low cost.
The ECM software provides the FMCG organisation with powerful features to capture, track documents and to streamline its pricing claims workflow. KYOCERA together with the customer, worked to implement the solution over six months, beginning with putting pricing claims in for larger clients onto the system first.
“The ECM solution has enabled us to eliminate spreadsheets and busy work that had become a pain point in our business.
KYOCERA’s team helped us to get the most from our existing ECM implementation and use it to transform our pricing claims process.” FMCG Organisation
