Manufacturing, longstanding backbone of the global economy, is facing new challenges in an uncertain market. The time-intensive processes that support the production line-whether procurement, regulatory compliance, or inventory management-still largely rely on people-driven processes. To stay competitive, manufacturing organizations must adapt and optimize these often complex and intertwined processes that define the manufacturing value chain. And fast.
Automating back-office and operational processes within the manufacturing value chain is key to moving faster and more effectively, while at the same time reducing costs, accelerating time-to-market, and enabling innovation to flourish.

The Accounts Payable team was overwhelmed by the burdensome invoice-matching process and lacked the time to process exceptions in a timely manner. The hands-on process also resulted in reporting delays and risk of supplier payment delays. The Stant Finance team recognized that the Accounts Payable and Procurement Teams needed a better way to process invoices efficiently, address supplier issues proactively, and free up time to source and manage supplier relationships more strategically.
The IT/Finance teams considered different options to streamline the invoicing process and how to automate. In the research process, they became aware of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and brought this solution to the leadership as a quick way to improve the throughput and accuracy of the accounts payable process. The CFO’s team could focus on higher value work, while his Digital Workforce performed the time consuming invoice matching and tedious data entry work—all while reducing errors.
