Case Study

Automation for cost saving and operational efficiency
Our client, a one-stop fresh meat delivery start-up operating on a farm-to-fork model, wanted to streamline their procure-to-pay process and standardise and automate their accounts receivable process. As their trusted advisors, we assisted them in achieving their goals, resulting in 5% to 10% direct and indirect savings due to reduced labour costs and improved controls on payments and collections. Our intervention also led to over 200 working hours saved monthly due to automated daily reporting, semi-automation of the payment gateway, reconciliation and B2B invoices using the client's technology platform
E-commerce for growth in a traditional industry
Our client, a corporate real estate interior fitting company in business since 1976, was looking to expand. They wanted to offer their customers a one-stop shop to buy interior construction materials online by launching an e-commerce venture. The client engaged us to prepare a five-year implementation roadmap, which would be managed and monitored through a project management office. We created a robust business plan and implementation strategy to help the client launch their e-commerce website successfully.
