Lafarge's AP processes were paper based and clerically intensive with peak periods of activity. At the time of implementation the AP department was to be consolidated at Dorking. Lafarge Roofing used the opportunity to establish new processes and procedures in a new environment with different resources. Cogent Consulting assisted, not only by implementing the new system, but by providing broader SAP consultancy to deliver additional benefits in processes and performance. 

Cogent Consulting delivered the AP Automation solution in six weeks with only 16 consulting days.

This is what Kevin Thomas – Financial Controller at Lafarge had to say about the project:

“Cogent Consulting took the time to understand our business requirements and to identify solutions that were appropriate to our business needs. They freely offered advice and guidance that went beyond the scope of the immediate project. The implementation was a simple process with quality and speed assisted by Cogent’s intellectual capital, the excellent SAP knowledge of their consultants and their willingness to be flexible to our timescales and requirements”.                                       

“We not only successfully consolidated our AP departments but we improved efficiencies in terms of reduced resources, increased performance and improved quality of service. The quality of Cogent’s SAP consultancy and product knowledge was second to none”.
