Process Bottlenecks

Owing to large-scale operations and the absence of real-time accounting, the accounts department was dealing with delays and inaccuracies in payables processing. In addition, there were:

  • Delayed project reporting and valuations, leading to poor cash inflow and delay in labor payouts
  • Delayed compliance and statutory reporting leading to fines and penalties

Cogneesol’s Optimization Solution

A complete analysis of the operations revealed inefficiencies and non-value-add processes with exposure to inaccuracies and delays. We assigned an accounting team expert at turning around processes. They undertook the following steps;

  • Prepared project-specific checklist to improve accurately processed invoices and to eliminate duplicates
  • Introduced project-based accounting to improve allocation of funds, accuracy and timeliness of accounting. This helped in achieving accurate project valuations and enabled on-time progressive invoicing, leading to a healthy cash inflow
  • Independently handled all compliance and statutory reporting to bring about overall compliance

Cogneesol has helped skim our processes, keep us fit and compliant. Our books of accounts have never been in such good shape. They work like our in-house team now.
