2 Sisters wins with automated accounts project
2 Sisters Food Group has boosted customer service and back office speed and efficiency by implementing an automated accounts processing system.

The company has worked with Zensar Technology to adopt Robotic Process Automation in their shared services centre.

The system focuses on streamlining the accounts receivables cash posting and allocation process.

Since the project began, about 97% of tasks have become automated, resulting in lean operations and time to complete task ratio. About £600m has been posted by Bots, speeding up payment processing, reducing time taken for cash posting by 90%.

This has freed up staff to engage more with customers and improve that relationship.

"When we initiated the automation process, we were clear on the operational goals we wanted to achieve,"​ said Barry Spenceley, head of shared services at 2 Sisters Food Group. "Having seen such clear outcomes, with a clear impact on the enhanced quality of our customer service, we have the confidence to continue the path of automation within the accounts receivables cash posting and allocation process. The Zensar team has both the expertise and the understanding of our business to help us through the entire project."

Chaitanya Rajebahadur, senior vice-president and head, Europe, Zensar Technologies, said: "It is encouraging to see the immense returns automation brings in a short time-frame. Our team was focused on ensuring that the customer sees benefits early on, and I am glad to have seen us achieve this milestone. We look forward to a continued strategic relationship with 2 Sisters Food Group."
