Colorado-based aggregate producer and Viewpoint customer, Summit Materials, was looking for a better way to address spending challenges and control expense issues. Similar to many contractors, Summit works with a large and varied group of vendors to serve their customers and needed a simpler, streamlined approach when paying these third parties.
When searching for a solution, one of the top priorities for Summit was to find an automated payment process that integrated with their Viewpoint V6 software, helping to fully streamline the procure-to-pay process while completing payment transactions quickly.
