Russell Group saves over £100,000 a year using e-invoicing

Wednesday 12th September, 2012

The Russell Group, one of the UK’s leading logistics and warehousing firms, is achieving efficiency savings of over £100,000 per year after automating its purchase-to-pay process using m-hance’s electronic invoice solution.

Before its implementation, the Russell Group’s purchase-to-pay processes were extremely time-consuming and costly as a result of handling paper. Purchase invoices would arrive into its head office in Glasgow and then have to be circulated to its 15 different sites across the UK where they would require signatory approval. Invoices would often get lost or mislaid, resulting in further delays to the approval process.

Payment terms barely improved in three years - research shows

Tuesday 11th September, 2012

The Forum of Private Business has found councils struggling to meet payment terms targets. Despite government imposed targets for councils to pay suppliers within 10 days, on average barely half (51%) of councils actually do.  Although it's an improvement on the 45% figure in 2009, it's not the move forward the government was hoping for. The data also reveals suppliers are now paid, on average, after 17.5 days – a fractional improvement from 2009 when it was 17.9.

It also appears that there's a large discrepancy between different areas of the country. On the whole, councils in the North West were the quickest payers, while those in Yorkshire were the worst.
