TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- Cambridge Mercantile Group, a global payment and risk management solution provider, today announced it has been internationally recognized for setting new benchmarks in accounts payable innovation for application of its customized and cost-saving Automated Payable Solutions (APS) to MAUSER USA, LLC, a subsidiary of MAUSER Group, a worldwide leading producer of industrial packaging.
Cambridge and MAUSER USA together are among the top five finalists for The Institute of Financial Operations Innovation Award to be presented at the Fusion 2014 conference on May 8, 2014. The conference is also where both companies will be leading an educational session for businesses on successfully achieving AP automation.
"We're honored to be recognized for our efforts in creating a service that meets the worldwide growing industry demand for check elimination and the streamlining of company-wide payments," says Anil Sawrup, Senior Vice President of Payment & Risk Solutions at Cambridge Mercantile Group. "This accomplishment not only reflects the values of all Cambridge stakeholders in continually striving for innovation, but also shows our commitment to ensuring the ROI for our clients in a turnkey solution that results in bottom line savings and potential rebate revenues."
Before contracting Cambridge, MAUSER handled its accounts payable manually, resulting in inefficiencies, a consequence of paying vendors by check. Faced with rising postage and banking fees, the company knew it needed to transition to an electronic enabled payments system but lacked the resources to manage such an endeavor. Cambridge Mercantile Group's proven, six-step process, administered entirely by a team of in-house experts, made it possible for MAUSER to implement non-check vendor payments within 90 days.
"Cambridge was the key to our success with this project; in just three months they were able to convert 81,801 cheques to electronic payments," says Elizabeth Miller, Treasurer & VP of Finance, MAUSER USA. "With less demand on our AP resources and improved efficiency overall, we are better positioned for accelerated growth now and in the future."
Mike McKay, Vice-President of Payment Solutions, Cambridge Mercantile, will provide an in-depth look at how businesses can achieve AP automation at Fusion 2014, the premiere conference and training event for professionals in the financial industry. With the help of Ms. Miller and Jenna Szymoniak, Treasury Manager, MAUSER USA, who will offer a case study example, Mr. McKay will also outline effective strategies for managing a painless transition to electronic payments.
