Live, off-site, online, and on-time. We power our services with the human element. Beyond technology, it’s people that make the difference. Our analysts go further, find more, and deliver exceptional service for every client, every day with our accounts payable recovery audits.
Our team is skilled in reaching the right person and asking the right questions to uncover the correct information. They know the lingo, business practices, divisions, and locations of each supplier. All the while, speaking the supplier’s language.
That’s why we proudly Count on People.
There are no shortcuts for an effective accounts payable recovery audit; you must combine technology with the human mind. That’s why our people pick up the phone and talk.
If automation alone were the answer, don’t you think SAP, Oracle, Peoplesoft, Microsoft, and others would have created a solution.
Duplicates get all the attention when in fact they account for only 20-30% of recoveries in a traditional audit. Illumis Global uses the human element to go above and beyond to locate the other 70% of AP recovery audit potential.
Human capital, curiosity, and discovery can’t be replaced.
Let’s face it—human curiosity will always uncover more than technology alone.
Built on nearly
30 years of experience.
IQ is our tool to more efficiently complete an accounts payable recovery audit. It analyzes details about every vendor, supplier, contact, transaction, query, and even phone calls using business intelligence to determine where our analysts should focus their attention.
Information is constantly being analyzed and delivered to our analysts, so they can be armed with valuable information that identifies potential risks, anomalies, and suspect supplier behaviors when performing your accounts payable recovery audits.
Our analysts have the experience and global access to millions of supplier contacts including direct phone lines, extensions, and emails. IQ arms them with known supplier behaviors, payments application practices, and recovery patterns to deliver more dollars back to your bottom line.
Built into its core is flexibility. Our analysts can create custom views and segments of your supplier base and related transactions allowing them to dig deeper and find more within your accounts payable recovery audit.
Our application platform capabilities are limitless. Our highly skilled IT team and analysts have worked with SAP, Oracle, Peoplesoft, Workday, JDE, and dozens more. Often, configurations range from multiple instances of a single accounting platform to multiple systems including “homegrown” applications. We have the ability to blend all your ERP data, which helps spot the same payments made from, for example, corporate and some made at different business units.
Our analysts untangle the source of funds due back to our clients.
No AP recovery audit is submitted to our client without first meeting our rigorous quality assurance standards. To meet this goal our quality control team reviews each and every recovery prior to posting to the client portal.
In short, claims you can count on!
