Honda New Zealand transforms spend management with invoice and expense automation


For Honda NZ, the business drivers for moving to an automated spend management solution were two-fold; a company-wide directive to improve sustainability, and a desire to address process inefficiencies. Both drivers supported the move to a paperless, automated spend management platform.

Operating on a legacy accounting system, Honda NZ required a solution that would integrate with its existing system while offering the mobility and flexibility required for a mobile, dispersed workforce. 

“The benefits we get, the staff satisfaction, the efficiency, we have supplier satisfaction because they get paid a lot quicker, these are all important things for having a good working environment going forward. I wouldn’t hesitate to automate.” Joe Hall, chief financial officer, Honda NZ. 

For Honda NZ, the impact of COVID-19 on the business’ spend management processes were mitigated by management’s decision to move to the Cloud and implement SAP Concur solutions prior to the pandemic. The company’s ability to enable their remote workforce has also had a lasting effect on providing a supportive and happy environment for staff.
