Client Business Challenge

The purpose of this case was to automate a manual, inefficient invoice approval process that was based on an Excel template. Users were manually completing the invoices and sending them for approval. The issues that McKesson had to overcome:

  • The Excel template was difficult-to-update
  • The tracking of the approval status was problematic, and the capability of the Delegation of
    Authority (DoA) to approve or take decisions was limited
  • The invoice approvals couldn’t be easily identified and this was leading to conflicts and time delays

An automated workflow with
Low-Code BPM and RPA was built in less than 14 days

Unnecessary tasks were eliminated through many automation functionalities such as smart notifications, approval forms, auto-corrections and suggestions, error checks, etc.

Paper-based tasks and consequently manual errors are reduced

A powerful RPA component used to create a pdf file with all the approver details

This process automation resulted in full traceability of each approval request, full visibility of all workflow stages, instant accessibility and transparency in the invoice details

14 Working Days from Initial Request to Final Solution
