Who is Silver Eagle?

What was the challenge?
With a manual, paper-based system, AP lacked visibility into spend and had a cumbersome process for reviewing deviations.
How did we help?
With improved visibility, Silver Eagle now tracks who has an invoice, for how long, and where any bottlenecks are occurring.
