Recovery Audit for Finance Professionals

Money gets lost. It’s a cost of doing business. We’re all human. Systems aren’t foolproof, errors get missed and lost money adds up.

Our experts have the tools, tech and know-how to dive into the data, recover any lost money, and help maintain your professional reputation. No money found? No fee.

Having heard of his past tech successes, I've recently been fortunate to work directly with Ian. Not just as a client, but a partner. He took the time to understand the business. Within six months created an action plan to drive £1m of savings and provide solutions for tighter control.

£2.6m in savings and recoveries from AP Recovery Audit

Our client, operating in 16 countries with over 1,300 stores since 1970, faced challenges with their finance department. They moved the function into head office, undertook a system change and had an over-reliance on spreadsheets. The company's CFO wanted to investigate further, but their task was complicated by systems that didn't communicate with each other and data held in silos throughout the organisation.

We have successfully implemented two phases of AP Recovery Audits, dealing with historical transactions and subsequent system migration. Moreover, we have completed two thorough supplier statement reviews across production and non-production suppliers.

Our interventions led to over £2.6m in savings and recovered spend, along with the updating and cleansing of the supplier master file. Furthermore, our analysis provided the leadership team with valuable insights, such as identifying bottlenecks and areas where manual intervention were causing inefficiencies and delays in the company's processes. We continue to provide financial and operational value to this customer.

Let’s talk about how we can help

Friendly, upfront and transparent, Barcanet spotted payment errors which has saved us lots of money. Definitely recommended - they get the job done without fuss.
