During the keynote, Kraft Heinz, a food company with more than 37,000 employees and $24 billion in annual sales, outlined its Accounts Receivable processes in EMEA. Kraft Heinz’s approach was to notch process wins, deliver value and then scale accordingly.

Fernanda Laura Rocha de Sa Freire, Associate Director of Global Business Services and Process Mining at Kraft Heinz, said the company set up proactive alerts via Celonis' Execution Management System (EMS) to optimize cash discounts.

The company said it realized $1 million in profit and loss and cash flow value within 9 months. Now the company plans to expand the use of Celonis EMS to Accounts Payable, Order-to-Cash and Procure-to-Pay across EMEA and North America.

Delphi Technologies, a brand of global automotive supplier BorgWarner, also outlined its Accounts Payable process gains. Delphi Technologies has 44,000 SKUs, 10,000 B2B customers and 1 million end customers.

The company started using Celonis to optimize Accounts Payable and then moved to Accounts Receivable and Procure-to-Pay processes, said Chris Martin, Head of Process Analytics at Delphi Technologies.

Delphi Technologies now plans to use Celonis EMS for its manufacturing, supply chain and inventory management processes.

According to Delphi Technologies, the company has realized $1 million in value a year by cutting duplicate and erroneous payments. The company has also seen a $4 million cash impact by optimizing its Accounts Receivable processes.
