Border Express found itself in one area of transporting it never intended, transporting paper from one desk to the next.
Australian interstate transport and distribution services company Border Express had a paper-based system where invoices were sent around various departments for manual signoff. With no tools in place to keep track of what had been approved across the company’s 12 sites, matching purchase orders with invoices became a complicated and slow process.
The company has commented that ‘Since Star Business Solutions implemented eApprovals, the expenditure approvals process has been cut from weeks to just days.’
To improve internal controls and provide greater cost visibility across the business, Border Express worked with Star Business to integrate MYOB Greentree’s Purchase Order module, Approvals & Alerts and eApprovals to its existing MYOB Greentree system.
Star Business Solutions integration of eApprovals was part of an overall strategy to give managers better control over their cost centres. The ability to view, approve or reject all purchase orders online has resulted in better visibility and increased internal control. In addition, managers who don’t need access to the full system can approve purchase orders via eApprovals, saving licence fee costs.
