70% reduction in open items and 50% improvement in first pass yield with smarter reconciliations
A leading global U.S.-based pharmaceuticals company experienced long resolution times for its intercompany disconnects. The company lacked robust request/invoice tracking and research mechanisms, and generally had delayed or no response from the markets regarding aged items. Genpact instituted a series of process changes that included central tracking of open items, ticketing solutions, dashboard reporting, and a robust communication and escalation matrix. This reduced aged intercompany disconnects by 70% and increased efficiency for invoices paid on time.

50% reporting cycle time reduction for a leading infrastructure development company
The company's long reporting cycle used manual data consolidation, review, and analysis of cost and financial data and was subject to misreporting and delays. Genpact studied the “as is" process and data activity flow during the 70-day reporting cycle, identified gaps, verified results with division leads, and recommended changes. Our solution reduced the time to report by 50% and improved productivity by 45%, with a corresponding 20% decrease in journal adjustments.
