Count on People

It’s not just what software can do, it’s what our people can do with it.

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.

70% more recoveries with our approach.

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.

See the unseen.

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.

Blending the inquisitive mind with the power of technology.

Let’s face it—human curiosity will always uncover more than technology alone.

Bright Ideas for a Better AP Recovery Audit

We use the latest technology to discover insights buried in your data.

Built on nearly

30 years of experience.

Meet IQ

After trillions of dollars and hundreds of millions of suppliers analyzed, IQ knows it all.

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.

Knowledge Exchange is how our analysts interact with IQ every day.

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.

Application Platform Experience

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.

Valid and Vetted Claims

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!

The On-Time AP Recovery Audit

Many Fortune 500 companies hear “recovery audit” and brace themselves for a process that runs on and on with no end in sight.


In reality, a thorough accounts payable recovery audit can be completed within 90-100 days if the right team is involved.


An accounts payable recovery audit with a firm end date offers three key benefits:

 1. The need for an on-time recovery
 2. New process changes hinge on the audit results
 3. Newly installed VPs/directors/managers need the landscape

We Do it All Off-Site

Execute the most thorough people-driven accounts payable recovery audit and do so with little to no disruption. Early on, we felt that if we could deliver on operating principles like this we could set ourselves apart. Time and growth have proven that we are still on the right track. Time spent dealing with on-site outsiders is costly, disruptive, inefficient, and it’s time you can’t replace.


From data extraction through completion of the project, we’re there when you need us and gone when you don’t. We will place a seasoned team of analysts on your project that have expertise in your industry and on your ERP platform to provide you with the perfect project setup.


We dig deeper during an accounts payable recovery audit with less intrusion than you can imagine. The net is true efficiency.


“Our clients do business globally and so do we. We have supplier contacts in 175 countries and growing.”
