The Background

Amphenol LTD is a manufacturing site within the family of companies that forms the Amphenol Corporation, a global interconnect specialist generating in excess of $8 billion yearly revenue with over 80,000 employees.

Employing around 260 people at the site in Whitstable, Kent, Amphenol LTD offers a full design and manufacturing service for a large range of connectors and interconnect solutions, including cable assembly, over-moulding and electronic packaging. In the age of globalisation, Amphenol LTD is proud to have retained a full end-to-end manufacturing capability for its products in the UK, whilst having opened access to low cost manufacturing sites around the world to complement its offering to customers globally.

The Challenge

Amphenol identified the need to modernise and automate their AP function. Michael Polley, IT Applications Manager explained “We were printing invoices and manually entering the data into XA. Physical copies of the invoices were being stored on site which made them difficult to retrieve and file. With the increased demand for remote working, the need for greater transparency and faster reconciliation was essential.” A decision was made to replace existing manual processes with document capture and workflow technologies.
