Kent Police

Kent Police implement Accounts Payable Automation processing 60,000 invoices per annum. Cogent Consulting were awarded the tender to implement the solution in the new Business Services Centre, which Kent Police have setup to deliver Finance Shared Services.

The solution comprises scanning and OCR technology to convert paper invoices to electronic data and SAP integration to manage the line item matching, postings, query resolution and reporting. Here are some of the comments from Dave Marshall – Head of Business Services for Kent Police

"Working with Cogent to implement A-iP enabled us to achieve 50% savings on the costs of invoice processing."

"Our A-iP project was delivered ahead of time and within budget in partnership with Cogent"

"Implementing A-iP with Cogent has given us an accurate organisation wide picture of our AP process for the first time."

"The benefits of implementing A-iP with Cogent go beyond staff savings; paperless A-iP gives us  faster, more accurate payments with no physical storage requirements."

"Using a knowledge transfer approach during the implementation of A-iP with Cogent meant we were able to very quickly start delivering the benefits”
