In 2020 Shelor Motor Mile made the decision to expand their quest to go paperless into their Account Payable Department.
With multiple companies and over 400 employees, many of which are mobile or do not work in the office most of the time, the task of tracking down invoices and getting them approved was very frustrating and time consuming. Molly Boothe (Controller) thought there had to be a solution out there that would allow their mobile employees to create a purchase request, approve an invoice or send an invoice from their mobile device. As a CDK user, Boothe reached out to CDK for recommendations for a solution, and that’s how she found Yooz.
Boothe knew that getting her Payables team onboard wouldn’t be an issue, as it was very apparent the benefits to them in making this change, she was unsure how eager the rest of employees would be to making such a drastic change. She was pleasantly surprised that what could have been a huge undertaking to change the company’s culture from paper to primarily paperless, was actually an easy transition once everyone could see all the benefits Yooz could provide to all departments not just Payables.
During Shelor’s implementation the project manager at Yooz was very thorough in learning how the Shelor organization operates in order to suggest the most efficient workflows to get the most out of the application.
Shelor Motor Mile is using Yooz for more than just processing invoices electronically. Here are some of the other ways that are utilizing Yooz:
- Mobile Purchase Request/Orders
- Automated Reminders/Follow-up on invoices awaiting action
- Electronic Document Storage
- Automated GL Account Coding
“Don’t be afraid to change! I would venture to say if you asked anyone here at Shelor who has been using Yooz they would say the same. It is actually a running joke that whenever there is a process that needs to be improved my first answer is, I bet we can use Yooz for that.”
