Ardent Mills, the largest flour producer in North America, was created as a joint venture from ConAgra and Cargill four years ago and had an aggressive deadline to move all processes to homegrown systems. Given the new ERP with limited functionality, the A/R team had to rely on a large number of contract-hires just to manage day-to-day operations in collections, cash application, and deductions.

• Achieve 90% straight-through processing for checks and EFT line items
• Improve productivity in collections and deductions by leveraging AI and RPA based solutions.
