Increasing Efficiency for a German Chemical & Consumer Goods Company
Elemica recently completed a digital transformation project for a major German chemical and consumer goods company. The organization was struggling to manage over 10,000 transactions per year, 500 customer contracts and over 80 CSRs using slow, outdated, manual processes. Elemica automated many of these for them, resulting in fewer mistakes and more streamlined processes which is increasing their overall efficiency. As a result of this project with Elemica, the company has more time to focus on developing its core business.
The business was also struggling with issues around self-billing and invoicing which was holding up nearly €25 million. Elemica automated their invoicing process so they could invoice electronically via a third-party provider. The organization now has fewer invoice-related delays and a vastly improved cash flow.

Transforming Supply Chains for Leading Beer Brands
Elemica has transformed the supply chains of some of the world’s best-known beer organizations; automating their time-consuming and costly manual order processes to deliver huge efficiency increases.
A common issue these leading beer brands have struggled with is accepting orders from non-EDI customers in different formats, usually via email. This is a huge headache for their reps who waste a lot of time interpreting, analysing and entering orders manually.
Elemica streamlined this whole process by extracting order information from a variety of data formats and automating submissions of all non-EDI sales order data straight into the SAP environment. The beer brands now enjoy an order accuracy rate of 99.80% and have more time to spend really engaging with their customers and building their business. You can read the Asahi case study here.
Elemica has created a helpful video on the power of automating supply chain processes. Watch to see how they help companies free up their people for more meaningful and value-add work by turning 30-minute procedural tasks into 30-second tasks.
Streamlining the order-to-cash process for Concha Y Toro
Another recent Elemica success story involves Concha Y Toro, one of the largest Latin American wine producers in Great Britain. The company was experiencing exponential growth but was struggling to keep up with the huge increase in orders. Their order processing consisted of a patchwork of inefficient and manual processes. These were constricting the company’s capacity to grow and they were struggling to meet the increase in customer demand.
Elemica optimized and streamlined Concha Y Toro’s order-to-cash process; from customer onboarding to ordering and invoicing. They connected various disparate processes, automating them where possible, and brought everything together into a centralized platform. The company now has accurate, real-time data on their orders, can quickly spot and respond to any customer or distributor complaint, and has more time to focus on providing an even better service to their customers.

Elemica has created a comprehensive eBook, Order-to-Cash Automation Primer. This explores the order-to-cash cycle and how you can digitize and optimize these processes to save time and money.
