Environmental Firm ESA Walks the Sustainability Talk with Help from EleVia Payables Software

January 30, 2016

If you’re an architecture, engineering or energy consulting firm that promotes sustainability, you know it isn’t enough to be an environmental steward for your clients. You also need to practice what you preach.

Top-ranked firm Environmental Science Associates (ESA) is a good example. They look for ways to incorporate ecological practices into all levels of business operations — from purchasing to their own facility site selection.

So, when we talked to ESA about a way they could reduce 1,000 interoffice shipments a year, they were very receptive. They did it by implementing our EleVia Payables Approval & Tracking software, which integrates seamlessly with the Deltek Vision for accounting. EleVia Payables Approval & Tracking automates the payables review process, making it easy for approvers to review and mark-up subcontractor invoices and other accounts payable.

“Our accounting staff was making paper copies of vendor invoices and shipping them to approvers at our 15 offices,” said ESA’s Senior Accounts Payable and Payroll Specialist. “With EleVia Payables software, we eliminated one to two shipped packages of invoices a week at each of our 15 offices — and reduced our paper usage.”

In addition to helping ESA fulfill its commitment to operate as a sustainable business, our Payables product also helped the firm:

  • Reduce vendor invoice processing time by 50%
  • Eliminate the cost to store old invoices offsite
  • Improve project manager access to invoices, with details like job-to-date billed for each vendor
  • Improve client service by answering client billing questions faster
  • Extend financial functionality of the core Deltek Vision ERP system
