Teknion previously utilized accounts payable (AP) automation within the shared services function in its corporate office, and after recognizing the challenges posed by all-manual processes in the rest of North America, Asia and Europe, leadership sought out a global, scalable tool that could seamlessly integrate with all its global sites.
“With the company expanding and demand for products growing, Teknion further wanted a solution that leverages automation and artificial intelligence by bringing together the information from multiple ERPs to continue our financial systems transformation,” said Yin Wong, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer at Teknion. “After careful evaluation, Teknion found Esker to be the ideal choice, meeting each of our unique needs and objectives effectively.”
“It was clear early on that Esker was the obvious choice to take Teknion to the next level of operational efficiency and growth,” said John Comacchio, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer at Teknion. “The usability of Esker’s solution surpassed all others, offering a night-and-day difference. We’re looking forward to having a more efficient payables process and the capability to better aid our suppliers. The solution will be key in creating strong, trust-filled relationships.”
By embracing Esker’s AI-driven technology solution, Teknion is not only enhancing its AP department’s efficiency and overall partnership value but also ensuring that they stay ahead in the competitive landscape. With traditionally manual tasks becoming increasingly challenging to manage and retain qualified workers, the adoption of Esker’s automation technology offers a significant advantage, lightening the workload for the internal AP team.
“Teknion’s recognition of the transformative power of digital transformation exemplifies a progressive mindset that not only empowers their organization, but also serves as an inspirational model for other industry players, both in and out of Canada,” said Steve Smith, U.S. Chief Operating Officer at Esker. “We’re proud to stand by their side as they embark on their digital journey, confident that Teknion‘s commitment to innovation and digital transformation will propel them toward continued remarkable growth and success.”
