Case Study: 65-70 hours a month down to just 3. Dataline APA+ helps one Australian SME slice nearly 2 weeks off their monthly accounts payable run.

12/12/16. Dataline Group Pty Ltd, an Australian payments and accounts payable (AP) specialist SaaS and software company, today released its latest case study showing the time savings and improvements to business processes experienced by Treloar Transport following successful implementation of Dataline APA+.

High costs associated with processing accounts payable continue to plague Australian small businesses.

Treloar Transport is a heavy machine hire and civil engineering business based in Sheffield, Tasmania. Like many busy small to medium enterprises, they were struggling with the mounting costs of dealing with the volume of supplier invoices that needed to be managed.

“No matter what anyone says, you still have to deal with paper.” Said Mr. Milham, Treloar Transport’s General Manager.  “It’s all over the place. Every month, one of our 3 days a week, part time accounts staff was taking at least 2 weeks to check and get all of our invoices into MYOB, have them approved by management and then filed away.  Plus, if we needed to find an invoice later on, it meant going through our paper filing system. “

Dataline Group implemented their Dataline APA+ solution at Treloar.  This combines outsourcing a number of accounts payable business processes to Dataline’s Sydney based centre and software to fully integrate a business’ MYOB AccountRight application with Dataline’s cloud portal.  Full setup and training is included as part of Dataline’s 30 Days free trial.

The results were immediate.

What was previously taking Treloar Transport approx. 65-70 hours each month has been reduced dramatically.

“We’re now processing our accounts payable in about 3 hours each month. We were told we’d save time but weren’t expecting results like these.” Said Mr. Milham. “The costs savings floored us.  It also didn’t cost us a cent up front to achieve them.”

“We’re very happy with the results Treloar Transport were able to achieve.” Commented Mr. Earl White, Dataline’s Sales and Channel Manager.  “For small businesses still working with paper and PDF invoices, we normally see them saving around 80% of their time and costs once they’re we’ve set them up on Dataline APA+. It was great that Treloar was able to go a bit beyond that figure.”
