Corus Entertainment Selects Esker to Automate its P2P Cycle
Thursday 4th May, 2023
Esker has announced Canada-based Corus Entertainment a major player in the media and entertainment industry, is automating its entire procure-to-pay (P2P) process with Esker — investing in solutions for accounts payable, procurement, expense and supplier management.
Corus offers a diverse portfolio of brands that entertain and inform audiences in Canada and around the world through daily storytelling and engaging content. As the company’s portfolio evolved and expanded to meet the needs of a rapidly changing media environment, Corus identified an opportunity to more efficiently manage the flow of invoices, purchase orders and communications across internal stakeholders — all of which were processed and handled manually or through an outdated platform. Company leadership pursued a solution that would streamline its back-office processes so the company could be well-positioned to advance its ongoing strategic growth initiatives.
“The integration of key business processes into a single automated system represented a significant opportunity to improve workflows and productivity across the business, supporting our strategic plans and priorities for future growth,” said John Gossling, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Corus Entertainment. “More than any other solution we explored, we discovered Esker would allow us to seamlessly align with these objectives, right from the start. We now have an extremely intuitive platform that is already paving the way for us to be more efficient in managing cash flow and become a better partner for our vast network of suppliers and brands.”
In addition to driving efficiency in back-office operations and streamlining workflows, Corus chose to integrate Esker’s solutions to provide real-time data and metrics that were previously unavailable, increasing reporting accuracy and improving visibility into its financial processes to better manage spend, and make data-driven decisions.
