Envisioning the future of accounts receivable

Blog: Capgemini CTO Blog

I’m extremely passionate about change. During my 15 years at Capgemini’s Business Services, I’ve been part of several market-leading evolutions, culminating in our realization of true digital transformation. This is particularly relevant in our AI.Receivables offering, where we’ve achieved great synergy between our transformation assets and key enterprise platforms such as BlackLine.

BlackLine is a leader in accounting automation software, with a portfolio that includes BlackLine Cash Apps – an AI-powered cloud-based platform that enables accounts receivable automation and digital transformation.

BlackLine’s products, and the expertise of the people that support them, are a perfect complement to Capgemini’s own strengths in what we term Frictionless Finance, and in our approach to receivables in particular.

What is Frictionless Finance? It’s the name we give at Capgemini to an approach that aims to remove all the obstacles and sources of friction that impede interactions between people and processes in the finance operations of an organization. It connects them seamlessly, intelligently, and as and when needed.

It dynamically adapts to each organization’s requirements within our Digital Global Enterprise Model (D-GEM) platform. This in turn helps organizations transition to – what we call – the Frictionless Enterprise.

Synergy – the benefits for accounts receivable

BlackLine’s solutions and skills not only fit comfortably into this approach – they enhance it. Together, we help organizations achieve simplicity and automation at scale for cost-effectiveness and superior results:

Receivables in practice

The relationship with BlackLine has delivered great results. We’ve implemented the platform in all major regions and it is being serviced across the Capgemini delivery network. We’re supporting a wide variety of different payment types in multiple currencies and multiple languages, accommodating a range of different bank interface formats, and processing many millions of receipt transactions.

Synergy means a form of interaction that gives rise to a whole that is greater than the simple sum of its parts. Working together with BlackLine, Capgemini is helping to building a new future for receivables – a future that is smart, and flexible, and frictionless.
