BrandMuscle, Inc. powers local, channel, and partner marketing for over 300 of the world’s largest brands. With 700 full-time employees, BrandMuscle has the industry’s largest client service, product development, and marketing execution support team. While leading the way in marketing and innovation, their accounts payable (AP) process needed enhancements.
Historically, BrandMuscle managed their AP process in NetSuite, disbursing payments to their suppliers by ACH or paper checks. Each month, over 1,000 checks were printed in-house, approved, stuffed by hand into envelopes, and mailed. The time required by staff to manually manage this process quickly became an impeding pain point.
BrandMuscle was searching for a payments automation solution that integrated into their ERP. Learning that Corporate Spending Innovations (CSI) was a “Built for NetSuite” AP automation and payments platform that could automate ACH and positive pay files to their bank while significantly reducing payments fraud, made the decision easy.
