Corcentric Implements COR360 Accounts Payable Automation Solution with Spark Energy

COR360 will provide Spark Energy with the technology to cut costs and increase efficiencies in their accounts payable processes.

McLean, VA, June 29, 2013 --( Corcentric, a leading provider of SaaS Accounts Payable automation solutions hosted in the cloud, today announced an agreement to implement its AP automation solution for Spark Energy, a nationally recognized retail electricity and natural gas provider.

The integration of COR360 into Spark Energy’s Accounts Payable processes will help the company bridge the last automation gap related to their non-PO-based invoice workflow. As part of the solution, Spark Energy will be using the COR360 platform to streamline the invoice approval workflow for faster processing and to reduce costs associated with manual processing. According to a study by the Aberdeen Group, organizations that automate these processes can shave 30% off the cost of processing and can decrease processing time from 17 days to less than five. Additionally, with COR360’s automated processes in place, Spark Energy will be able to process a higher volume of invoices and at a faster speed without adding more staff.

“We are excited to integrate the COR360 Accounts Payable automation solution into our current AP processes. By incorporating the most advanced AP automation technology into our processes, we will be able to increase visibility of our vendor invoices, force compliance of appropriate invoice approval levels and reduce processing costs; a few of the many rewards we will reap with the streamlined invoice processing. Additionally, we were very impressed with the customer support that Corcentric has continued to provide. Their support allowed us to quickly implement and start using COR360 for our non-PO based invoice processes. Between signing the contract and going live, we were able to implement and go into production within two months,” stated Amanda Wilson, Director, Accounting and Financial Reporting, Spark Energy.

“Industry leading organizations are beginning to understand the full value of replacing their manual and paper-intensive AP processes with streamlined, automated solutions,” stated Rob DeVincent, Vice President of Product Marketing at Corcentric. “Our clients understand that by adopting SaaS-hosted AP automation tools, they stand to not only save significant amounts of money, but can also accelerate payment cycles, leverage discount opportunities, and move their teams to more strategic projects as a result of implementing ZeroTouch, paper-free operations.”
