Arizona Utility increases efficiencies and cost savings with OpenText™ Vendor Invoice Management for SAP® Solutions

We process approximately 150,000 invoices a year. Before, we were operating with a cost per invoice of about $10. We’ve been able to reduce that about one dollar, to nine dollars per invoice.
