Medical Center Saves Time and Money, Plus Gains Early Visibility to Expenses Through Invoice Automation

Successful Accounts Payable Invoice Automation Implementation Led by GForce
ATLANTA - March 6, 2018 - PRLog -- Archbold Medical Center went live with Infor Lawson Accounts Payable Invoice Automation (APIA) announced Gregory Gotlin with GForce Technology Consulting, a consulting firm providing IT solutions for organizations that utilize Infor Lawson enterprise software applications. "Partnering with GForce was fantastic! Their depth of knowledge of the APIA software and business processes, as well as the training they provided, enabled us to think outside the box from a process standpoint, said Carla Pearce, Chief Accounting Officer with Archbold Medical Center. "By leveraging GForce's team of business and technology experts, we are now able to fully utilize the software and optimize our investment in APIA."

Archbold Medical Center, a four hospital and three nursing home health system with state-of-the-art facilities, was looking for cost and process efficiencies within the organization while optimizing their Infor Lawson investment by implementing APIA. APIA, which integrates with Infor Lawson Financials, automates the accounts payable workflow and provides a single source of truth for accounts payable invoice management.  Furthermore, this role-based solution, enables easier settlement and reconciliation processes, shortening of the monthly close process and enhances reporting and analytics.

The APIA implementation, which was successfully completed in under four months, has already provided Archbold Medical Center the much-needed control and oversight necessary to enforce accounting policies. "The Accounts Payable team has adopted APIA very well, they are finding it very easy to use and maintain. They are recognizing some immediate efficiencies, allowing them to spend more time doing an analytical evaluation of the invoices (in APIA). More invoices are being processed and approved now, because APIA is doing all the work," commented Sam Sapong, Senior Application Consultant for GForce. It is anticipated that the invoice cycle time will be reduced by at least 50 percent with the APIA implementation, and paper invoices will be eliminated entirely.

Impacts of the APIA implementation has been felt across Archbold Medical Center. Carla commented, "I have received a lot of great feedback. Leadership across all clinical and operational units are now able to login and view the status of invoices for their respective departments. Not only does this save a lot time, it gives them early visibility to what will show up in their cost center and they see a lot of value in that."
