Based in Philadelphia, today Arbill provides more than 200,000 safety products (including nearly 1,000 items manufactured under Arbill’s highly-respected Truline brand), over 50 Environmental Health and Safety Training Courses, and Safety technologies.
In need of an automated solution for their accounts payable (AP) department, Arbill originally selected a competitor’s Purchase to Pay solution in 2012. After 18 months of subpar results that saw them miss supplier discounts and continuing to manually process many invoices, they went back to the drawing board. Their research led them to DataServ. Their advanced matching capabilities, flexible tailoring options, and enhanced visibility gave Arbill the peace of mind they needed to make the switch.
