The Automation Imperative For Manufacturers & Distributors

Eliminate inefficient and costly manual work when processing sales orders and invoices



2020 was a defining year for the manufacturing and distribution industries as it led to an accelerated adoption of digital technologies to overcome operational and financial challenges induced by the pandemic. The automation of critical processes of strategic importance has emerged as a pivotal response capable of achieving untapped advantages and modernizing businesses to be future-ready.

Two business critical but support operations in the manufacturing and distribution industries – Sales Order Processing and Invoice Processing – are ripe for automation. While 80% of sales orders are still processed manually, invoice processing is riddled with inefficiencies, leading to 47% of all supplier payments running late.
