Case Study 3: Optimising O2C Process for a Leading Recruitment Firm through Bank Download Automation

The client, which has a network of more than 40 brands that it has expanded via mergers and acquisitions, is one of the largest recruiting experts in the world. The client, one of the fastest-growing organizations in this market, concentrates on combining recruiting businesses servicing various sectors.

Business Challenges

  • The crew put in a good deal of time and effort each month to download more than 4,000 payments.
  • Manually carrying out this procedure for several manufacturers increased the possibility of mistakes, such as missing downloads and duplicate downloads.
  • The staff had to pay close attention to make sure that each payment was downloaded, handled carefully, and posted in accordance with the client portal’s specifications.
  • The staff would struggle to separate IDF and current payments because to the huge payment volume, significantly increasing the chance of human mistakes.

How QX Helped

As a part of our solution, we performed the following activities:

  • Created and built a bank download program that downloads and keeps all incoming payments from bank portals in a certain folder automatically.
  • Initially, 20 organizations used the technology to automate bank downloads; as time went on, more companies did the same.
  • Automation increased team productivity and download accuracy, which eliminated the potential for manual mistakes.
  • To greatly reduce suspense balance, establish a smooth communication route between cross-functional teams.
  • A highly adaptable system that can be simply adjusted to any changes in the bank site has been implemented.

Case Study 4: Streamlined Loan Approvals for Global Recruitment Giant Through IDF Automation Services

Business Challenges

For the client, QX has worked on a number of projects, including end-to-end F&A transformation for crucial processes, including pay & bill, accounts payable, and accounts receivable, delivered using a Global Business Services model.

  • When inputting bills manually, the QX team would invest a lot of time and energy.
  • Manually separating invoices for the many customer brands raised the possibility of mistakes. This was a cause for worry because any uploading fault may result in the customer suffering a financial loss.
  • The compliance staff had to exercise extra caution and frequently struggled to adhere to regulations. Fund flow leakages might be caused by any disagreement.
  • The team had to pay additional attention to make sure that the requirements of the financial institutions were satisfied and that the data was posted properly in the required formats on their portal.

How QX Helped

As a part of our solution, we performed the following activities:

  • IDF Automation technology was created and used to automatically separate intercompany and non-intercompany invoices on an account level.
  • After that, non-intercompany accounts undergo the second stage of invoice level segregation based on criteria such as GBP & foreign currency invoices, credit notes, self-bills, and perm invoices. The system then creates the whole file, which the team may check and publish to the bank site.
  • Successfully deployed the solution across 11 businesses to allow IDF process management.
  • Configure the system to produce a consolidated report that aids the team in completing month-end reporting and reconciliation tasks promptly.
  • The client’s quarterly audits may now be carried out more successfully thanks to the implementation of several persona dashboards with audit trails.

Case Study 5: Automating Data Parsing for Recruitment Agencies with Email Parser

Six of the top ten healthcare staffing agencies are among the top recruiting firms QX works with in the UK. These organizations frequently deal with a lot of emails with the same or similar material. Manually processing this data may result in a loss of time, money, and labor.

Business Challenges

  • The customer had to keep a team of 15 employees on hand to transfer job openings from their inbox to their front-end system due to the client receiving thousands of job posting emails from various Trusts.
  • The organization’s competitiveness and turnaround time were influenced by the time it took to create the vacancy in the front-end system and deliver it to the recruiting consultants.
  • Sometimes, two data entry personnel would select up the same opening, leading to duplicate opening entries in the front-end system.
  • Closing openings that were filled requires tedious and time-consuming manual updating.
  • Human mistake risk rose considerably when data was entered manually.

QX Solution

  • Arranged for more than 30 Trusts to deliver vacancy alerts in organised formats (during the first two to three months) by configuring their email addresses and vacancy information structures.
  • Create a system such that configuring any new Trust email address or accommodating any modification to incoming email or vacancy structure only takes 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Set up a quick notification mechanism for the appropriate team members for any system exceptions.
