Multinational company intends to transform its accounting processes with Tungsten’s technology
Atlanta, 30 March, 2015 – Morgan Advanced Materials, a world leader in advanced materials technology that operates in more than 50 countries, has signed with Tungsten Corporation plc (LSE:TUNG), the global electronic invoicing, analytics and invoice financing company, to bring greater efficiencies to its North American accounts payable (AP) processes.
Morgan Advanced Materials is implementing a JD Edwards enterprise resource planning (ERP) system and is seeking to concurrently implement an AP automation solution to streamline its invoice process within its North America operations. Tungsten’s All-in-One For JD Edwards AP product integrates with JD Edwards software and enables the processing of all invoices.
Rick Hurwitz, Tungsten Chief Executive Officer (Americas), said: “I’m delighted that Morgan Advanced Materials, a FTSE 250 company, has chosen to work with Tungsten to streamline its payables process. Tungsten acquired Docusphere last summer in order to extend our portfolio of P2P technologies to better help our clients operate more efficiently and effectively. We look forward to achieving just that with the team at Morgan Advanced Materials.”
