An expanding, regional supermarket chain today employs over 3,000 people in 29 stores across the North-West of the country. The company works hard to engage with the communities within which it trades and to develop own label product ranges in partnership with local suppliers and producers. While both Booths and the many local suppliers and producers with which it trades have benefited from this symbiotic relationship, the fledgling nature of many of its trading partners means that, as part of their operational processes, many submit invoices that vary considerably in type and quality.
Looking to achieve more efficient operating methods, Booths decided to acquire a solution that would streamline the process by drastically reducing the time spent handling invoices manually. After considering a number of options, Booths adopted Canon’s Invoice Processing solution, which has delivered time savings and greatly improved productivity in the two years since installation.
"We can now present a far more accurate picture of the business, as we know exactly where any invoice is being held up.”
