On average, RS Components post 85% of their documents first time with no intervention and regularly achieve 90-95% first time posting. It’s been a journey achieving such a high level of automation and Cogent Consulting have supported RS in their endeavours to achieve true world-class processing in their Accounts Payable function.

RS Components process 750,000 invoices per annum and selected Cogent Consulting to implement the SAP integration for an Accounts Payable Automation Project.

RS Components use scanning and OCR technology to get data into SAP electronically and the SAP integration components manage the line item matching, postings, query resolution and reporting.

See what Mary McNeish – Continuous Improvement Manager at RS Components has to say about working with Cogent:

“Cogent are a valued business partner for RS.  Their approach to CI has allowed us to make significant improvements to automation. Our automation rate is on average 85%.” 

“Cogent’s consultants react quickly to any problem or request.  They speak in BAU language which is invaluable when trying to get to the root cause of an issue.”

“Automation has given us number of advantages not only with the processing of invoices but visibility. Cogent were involved in the original implementation and lead the implementation of the SAP cockpit transactions.  They advised us on our webcycle (workflow) processes enabling us to leverage our automation even further with “negative” approval etc.  These webcycles give as a complete audit trail we know exactly where the invoice is and how long it has been out for approval.”

“Ongoing partnership with Cogent has allowed for flexible issue identification and resolution as part of a joint CI journey.”
