Comments about working with Cogent Consulting from Craig Lloyd – UK & Ireland Finance Manager

“From day 1 working with Cogent has been a pleasure and really simple. The implementation went well due to the way it was set up and the fact that Cogent had taken the time to understand the business. As with all implementation there were small teething problems but Cogent resolved these very quickly.

Day-to-day the systems works extremely well and in most cases any scans that are sent across are in the system well within the 24hr turnaround in our agreement. When the Accounts Payable team have had issues our contact at Cogent has been very helpful and sorted them out in a timely fashion. The fact Cogent actively push you to get in contact with any errors on the scan so they can continuously improve the service they give to you is a big positive.

Having the invoices scanned and attached to the posting within SAP has been a huge benefit for us as managers can now see the invoices that make up their costs whenever they want and the AP team don’t have to go to a filing cabinet to pull the paper copies. As a company that is pushing sustainability the fact we don’t have filing cabinets full of paper invoices and are actively looking to push our suppliers down the e-invoice path helps a lot.

The auto-matching has also removed a large bulk of raw material stock invoices that the AP team now don’t have to manually do which has enabled them to focus on invoice queries and maintaining a tidy purchase ledger.”
