"It was a pleasure to work with the Cogent team to implement Archive Any in my last position at Wilts Wholesale Electrical. The system allowed us to scan and store critical proof of delivery documentation in key areas of our SAP system, speeding up a process that was previously manually covered by a network of 160 branches. The ease at which the system came in to operation, the efficiencies it created and protection it provided to the company strengthen the business as a whole. The system and the way Cogent manage the process of implementation was excellent and far exceeded my expectations. I would not hesitate in recommending the system and Cogent Consulting for your system needs." Graham Woodward - Head of Credit & Collections. Go to www.archive-any.com for more information.

Cogent Consulting celebrates 6 years of improving processes for SAP customers. Revenue continues to grow strongly year on year and the A-iP managed service business is fast becoming the de-facto choice for SAP integrated einvoicing and managed scanning services.

A-iP, the managed einvoicing and OCR service for SAP customers, now receives more electronic invoices than paper invoices with the most popular format being PDF email attachments.

First Group went live with our A-iP service in July 2010 processing 600,000 invoices per annum. A-iP converts the paper invoices and invoices emailed as attachments into electronic files and submits the data to the A-iP Control Centre installed on First Group’s SAP system as part of the service. A-iP also accepts electronic files from suppliers in any formats for upload into SAP. 

The Invoices Cockpit in SAP performs line item matching and will automatically post documents passing First Group’s 3-way match checks. Documents failing auto-line matching are automatically workflowed to the appropriate business user based on First Group’s business rules.
