Huhtamaki automates over 85% of their AR reconciliation & posting with AlgoriQ

The Objective

To enable Huhtamaki to optimise their accounts receivable process with large institutional customers through seamless integration, automate tracking of outstanding payments, and expedited dispute resolution

The Background

Huhtamaki PPL Ltd is a multinational company specializing in flexible packaging solutions. They are a market leader in flexible packaging and decorative labelling solutions built across modern technologies to enable consistent, safe, and memorable consumer experiences with suitable packaging. Huhtamaki's has five lines of business that supply to clientele, including FMCG companies like Britannia, HUL, Mondelez, Ferrero, Perfetti Van Melle, etc.

The Challenge

Huhtamaki faced challenges in reconciling payments coming in from their 1600+ customers and managing ERP posting manually.

Our Solution

Huhtamaki engaged with Global PayEX to deploy AlgoriQ – its machine learning A/R reconciliation product to enable an end-to-end digital reconciliation process.

The Results

PayEX has facilitated Huhtamaki to eliminate a significant amount of manual effort and intervention by automating the reconciliation process end-to-end. The time taken to reconcile payments was reduced from over 15 days to less than seven days within the first quarter, thereby reducing the amount of unapplied cash in the system at any given time. Thus, PayEX has helped Huhtamaki with a platform to grow their business by improving sales productivity and working capital efficiency
