AP automation allowed NET Centers to focus resources on mission-critical activities

Welcome to The River!

Northeast Treatment (NET) Centers is a Philadelphia-based non-profit that provides trauma-informed health and social services to more than 10,000 clients a year across 15 locations. After nearly 50 years in operation, the organization realized that as it was growing, its unsustainable workflows around expense reporting and vendor invoices were severely limiting operational agility. Robert Ferrandino, NET Centers' Controller, gives an example: “We had employees from field offices that would drive to the main office to submit physical paper expense reports, then expense the mileage from that trip. But also, they were spending time that could’ve been used for more programmatic services."

In this panel-based webinar with CFO.com, learn how Chrome River's suite of automated solutions allowed NET Centers to eliminate bottlenecks, improve financial visibility, and reduce waste across the organization. Hear about the benefits they experienced:

  • mobile expense submission through an intuitive user interface for more productive business travelers 
  • automation of manual tasks in expense/invoice processing, resulting in prompt reimbursement and vendor payment
  • transparency due to centralization of data, enabling visibility into payment reimbursement status, better financial reporting,  and improved donor/investor relations
  • real-time insights to inform proactive decision-making and negotiation of discounts or more favorable payment terms
  • the ability to configure policy rules, approval processes, and user notifications into a solution that will adapt to the organization's future needs

Every unnecessary dollar and every minute spent on tedious, manual back-office processes represents resources that could be channeled into accomplishing your core mission. NET Centers realized it could minimize administrative work and create a leaner operation with modern expense and invoice management. Use the form on the right to download the recording.
