Contributing to a better application

Progressive deployments

A valuable difference

Greater accuracy in applying cash daily

Faster application of payments that in turn reduces open accounts receivable balances

Lower unapplied cash balances

Prevention of capital charges

Reduction in peak time processing—month end, quarter end and year end

Increased speed on collection process

''The shift to machine learning is transformational and will help prepare for Accenture’s projected growth in invoice and payment volume. It has also given us the confidence to consider machine learning and AI for other processes.''
