JZ Flowers

Automating the mundane as a catalyst for growth.

The Company – JZ Flowers are a leading producer of floral bouquets for retailers in the UK. Based in the North of England, with significant operations in Holland and Ireland, JZ carefully select and pack over 450million stems per year.

Objective –  In order to meet its growth objectives, JZ Flowers wanted to introduce as much automation as possible within their finance function to help manage the many thousand purchase and sales ledger transactions dealt with by the Accounts department.

Challenges

  • Operations were slow and cumbersome
  • Heavily staffed Accounts department with considerable manual input of data
  • Management reporting was slow due to speed of collecting monthly data

JZ Flowers’ business is built around commitment to design, innovation and quality.

The problem JZ faced was the high volume production of documents, including POD’s, sales invoices and purchase invoices. Thecomplimentary business audit looked at purchase ledger as an example and worked out that each purchase invoice was being handled seven times!

The Solution

This project initially focused on the automation of mundane accounting tasks. By introducing intelligent invoice scanning and document management software, JZ Flowers saw immediate time-savings amongst the Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable functions, through clever integrations with the company’s existing Accounts software.

All incoming finance documents are now scanned, securely stored, shredded and easily retrieved at the click of a mouse… no more printing copies, storing in lever arch files and drowning in paper! The introduction of workflows and authorisation procedures that distribute tasks to people around the business also made the accounts function altogether more efficient. Put simply, the way that people create, manage, retrieve and archive information has been transformed.
