Challenges in Processing High Day-to-Day Sales Volumes

With rapid growth in subscribers and sales, the accounting function of Idea Cellular was challenged in processing the data in a timely manner. Sales entries were generated via outlets spread across the length and breadth of the country, and these needed to be updated in the Oracle ERP system on a daily basis. There was a mismatch between the volume of sales entries and the capabilities of the accounting function, leading to backlogs and delays in updates of sales receipts. Furthermore, there was pressure from the company’s board to achieve real-time updates of data to enable meaningful evaluations of the company’s financial health and cash flow requirements.

Revamping the AR Function

We were appointed to review the accounting function, and to establish new streamlined processes with higher efficiency. We discovered that the inputs were largely manual in nature and that the high volume of transactions translated to highly labor-intensive work. The CPA firm has been our customer for more than five years now. Outsourcing bookkeeping helped them to leverage their in-house resources for value-added services including accounting and tax advisory. The firm could channel its energy towards adding more clients, while we serve as their backend to effectively deliver bookkeeping services.

We were able to leverage our technology expertise to deploy automation solutions that accelerated the processes. We also deployed a team of ten members who were able to implement the necessary changes to achieve daily updates on Oracle of prepaid and postpaid connections across Maharashtra and Goa, in spite of the staggering volumes involved.

Business Benefits

  • We established processes that brought them to the speed of getting the daily sales updated on the Oracle platform
  • Real-time updates ensured accurate visibility of data and enabled forecasting and evaluation by senior management
  • Efficiency in AR operations was improved by 80%
  • Improved accuracy resulted in a decline of customer complaints by 50%
