Housing Association Case Study

How did Poplar HARCA, an award-winning Housing and Regeneration Community Association in London, successfully automate their Accounts Payable process with NexBotix?

Manual v.s Automated Process

Manual Process

Poplar HARCA’s Accounts Payable process was taking up significant amounts of time, with manual data entry into multiple systems. The team were under a lot of pressure to get through the workload and ensure their suppliers received a high quality service. The high manual workload meant that the team had insufficient capacity to complete other important tasks within their remit.

Automated Process

NexBotix automated 90% of this process…

The NexBotix Intelligent Automation solution was a tremendous help, saving hundreds of hours of invoice processing time, leaving staff time to focus on other key work. And the client is confident that soon enough 90% of all invoice processing will be automated thanks to NexBotix.
