With no fewer than 91 locations across the United States, Alliant Insurance Services was dealing with a challenge faced by many widespread businesses. Each location had its own unique shipping spend, which meant that the company’s central accounting department had to process 91 different weekly invoices from FedEx. Needless to say, this translated into long, ultimately unnecessary staff hours of processing and payment. It was not an efficient way of doing business.
After assessing the situation, Reveel implemented our Invoice Auditing services and was able to consolidate all of Alliant’s weekly invoices into one weekly payment report for its accountants to use in making remittance to Fedex. Now instead of cutting 91 weekly checks per week, the company only needed to cut one. Reveel also provided GL coding so that Alliant could assign FedEx costs to each cost center in the company, saving hundreds of staff hours monthly.
Free money. Unless you have the time to hire a full-time employee to audit your carrier invoices, Reveel is a must for your business. They have saved us thousands of staff hours consolidating carrier invoices to make payment to FedEx.Nathan Harrison

The effect of Reveel’s Invoice Auditing services on Alliant’s shipping spend has been impressive. The staffing hours they’ve saved alone represent significant savings at no cost. In addition to eliminating inefficiencies and streamlining accounting practices, though, we’ve been able to save the company 3% off their annual spend due to late shipments and billing errors on FedEx invoices. Extremely pleased with the results, Alliant has gone on to rely on Reveel’s shipping intelligence to increase visibility with regards to shipping spends across more than 90 offices nationwide.
