What we do

Frictionless order-to-cash, delivered via an AI-augmented workforce.

Capgemini’s AI.Receivables solution integrates with corporate systems, infusing AI into cash and collections processes to deliver next-generation, frictionless order-to-cash (O2C). This enhances efficiency, and brings top-line growth to your business.

Underpinned by a digital framework of enablers, an AI-augmented workforce, AI-driven operating models, and a partnership philosophy, our solution helps you streamline your operations and reduces exceptions to improve billing, collection, and account strategies.

Measurable potential benefits include up to 40% increases in days sales outstanding, up to 35% increases in efficiency, up to 90% increases in automatching for cash apps, and up to 60% increases in frictionless processing.

Frictionless purchase-to-pay, delivered through an AI-augmented workforce.

Capgemini’s AI.Payables solution infuses AI into accounts payable processes to deliver next-generation, frictionless purchase-to-pay.

Our solution uses a digital framework of enablers, an AI-augmented workforce, AI-driven operating models, and a partnership philosophy to eliminate repetitive, non-value-adding tasks such as exception handling and intelligent insight dashboard creation.

This delivers insight into sourcing strategies, efficient buying execution via the right channels, and optimized payment strategies.

Measurable potential benefits include up to 90% increases in automated invoicing, up to 25% increases in early payment discounting, and up to 50% reductions in manual vendors master data management.

The solution’s digital framework of enablers, together with an AI-augmented workforce, AI-driven operating models, and a partnership philosophy, ensures continuous accounting, a faster close, improved financial controls at reduced cost, real-time access to data, and actionable insights for faster, well-informed decision-making.
