Trophy Foods Enhances Its Accounts Payable Processes with Esker’s AI-Driven Solution

Derby, UK — January 23, 2020Esker, a worldwide leader in AI-driven process automation solutions and pioneer in cloud computing, today announced that Trophy Foods Inc., a Canadian manufacturer of nuts and confectionary products, is automating its accounts payable (AP) process with Esker’s AI-driven Accounts Payable solution.

Trophy Foods turned to Esker for a solution that would streamline AP processes, eliminate the use of paper, and prepare the company for future growth. Prior to the company’s implementation of Esker’s solution, operations involved manually routing paper invoices, often leading to inefficiencies and delays.

With Esker, invoices will be automatically entered into an electronic workflow — eliminating the manual printing, scanning, coding and routing activities that had previously been part of Trophy Food’s AP invoicing process. The new solution positions Trophy Foods to be able to grow top-line sales without increasing overhead costs. It also enhances internal controls for the company and improves the auditing process.

Benefits of an AP solution
Trophy Foods selected Esker’s cloud-based solution for its intuitive interface, quick implementation, and ability to meet the needs of its suppliers and employees. In addition, the company and its suppliers will see numerous benefits, including:

  • Enhanced visibility via customisable dashboards and real-time metrics
  • Faster invoice processing thanks to intelligent data capture powered by AI technology
  • Improved supplier relationships by providing an online portal with self-service tools and insight into payment status
  • Ability to scale with growing invoice volumes without adding headcount

“Esker was the most turnkey solution for us,” said Gordon McKay, Senior Manager for Financial Planning and Analysis at Trophy Foods. “The solution addressed all of the issues we wanted to resolve, and the interface seemed familiar to me, even though I haven’t worked with technology like this previously. Esker was just intuitive to use.”
