Go Green, Streamline AP & Achieve Fast ROI With MHC
State streamlines operations & achieves ROI in seven months
The State of New Hampshire is the 9th oldest state in the United States and serves 1.3 million citizens operating a budget of $5+ billion. In the late 2000s, the State of New Hampshire took aggressive measures to reduce expenditures and decrease the State’s environmental impact. Since implementing MHC’s Image Express document management solution integrated with Infor Lawson, the State has cut costs and achieved stellar annualized environmental benefits such as reducing demand for over 9 tons of paper and 23,000 gallons of gas!
The State of New Hampshire comprises 65 state agencies and processes about 42,000 accounts payable transactions each month; prior to implementing a document management solution, State resources needed to hand off hardcopy vendor invoices and copies sometimes as many as 15 times to generate a single payment
The State faced thousands of paper invoices getting copied and physically transferred from receipt at agency business offices, to their program managers for coding, to the centralized State comptroller office for final approval and eventually to the State archives
The State of New Hampshire selected MHC to address its needs – as an Infor Lawson-integrated document imaging system, MHC Image Express integrates with Infor Lawson and is designed to help finance and back-office organizations streamline operations
In 2010, the State launched the MHC Image Express implementation for AP invoices to complement its existing MHC Document Express document output solution for AP checks, 1099s, purchase orders and other document types
To enhance the State’s Infor Lawson Process Flow usage, MHC supplemented the invoice approver work unit views in Infor Lawson to include links to AP invoice images
The imaging project launched in March 2010 and the State went live in July; by the end of 2011, 95% of the State’s AP volume was processed via MHC imaging
Invoice approvers view invoice images in one click and can approve documents in a fraction of the time it used to take, while the system audit trail tracks every user action
Authorized resources are able to view and track AP invoice documents from any geographic location in seconds, saving valuable time and money internally
Vendor payments are processed faster according to terms and providing opportunities for discounts and better business relationships
Estimated annualized environmental benefits include: reduced demand for over 9 tons of paper and 23,000 gallons of gas, avoided generation of 2,230 pounds of greenhouse gas and use of 177,000+ gallons of wastewater
Immediately enabled the State to pursue shared services model for statewide financial processing in 2012 as mandated by recent legislation intended to achieve further operational efficiencies
