Atlas has electronically processed almost a quarter of a million invoices in the past 12 months for NFT, Culina Logistics, Yearsley Logistics and Grocontinental, dramatically improving operational efficiency while reducing the costs of administration, paper and other office expenses. 

All four businesses have benefited from the migration of time consuming paper invoicing systems to the Atlas electronic solution. This has allowed them to trade electronically with their customers, make processing savings and also boost their corporate social responsibility credentials by reducing spend on resources and cutting their carbon footprint.

Michael Latimer, VP Group Sales at Atlas Products International explained “We are very pleased to be providing e-invoicing solutions to logistics companies in the UK, large and small, helping them to develop closer ties with their customers, save money and streamline their operations for competitive advantage.”

Every day there are thousands of temperature-controlled vehicle movements around the UK keeping supermarket shelves filled, as well as making deliveries to pharmaceutical companies and other specialist businesses and manufacturers.

Atlas’ award-winning e-business solutions enable the management of transactions. For example EDI or web-EDI, synchronisation of data, such as supplier, product and price information and streamline business processes, across corporate and geographic boundaries, like the purchase to pay process.

In 2012 Atlas won the IT Europa Software Excellence award in the Supply Chain Management category, sponsored by Oracle. The award was given for the automation of BWG Foods' procurement to pay process which achieved substantial cost savings and delivered significant operational benefits.
