Arlington, VA (December 9, 2008) Sport and Health Fitness, one of the nation’s largest and most respected fitness chains, signs up with Nexus Systems to implement its best-in-class accounts payable automation application, NexusPayables. Nexus Systems’ complete purchase to payment web-based solution will convert Sport and Health’s current manual and paper-based A/P operations into one efficient centralized automated electronic process.

The NexusPayables product is a fully automated PO and invoice management application which integrates seamlessly with Sport and Health’s accounting ERP system, Sage Software’s Mas200. NexusPayables will satisfy Sport and Health’s key A/P processing objectives:

  • Lower cost and cycle time for processing A/P invoices via automated workflow which eliminates the need to FedEx documents for approval
  • Saving money by providing tighter controls on spending and expenses
  • Electronic archiving and retrieval of all A/P related documents (i.e. invoices, receipt of goods, vendor contracts, insurance certificates)
  • Flexible and custom reporting tools, including audit reports with images
  • Management of accounts payable on a national level through one application
  • The ability to expand without adding additional A/P staff

Additionally, the fitness firm will be taking advantage of Nexus Systems’ application self-hosting option to achieve an even greater return on their investment. To further complement the initiative, the company will facilitate Nexus’ Managed Scanning Services to collect and import all its vendor invoices so they will never have to see a paper invoice again.
