How SkipTheDishes Shaved Hours Off Requisitions and Invoicing

Headquartered in Winnipeg, Manitoba, SkipTheDishes is Canada’s leading and largest food delivery network. Skip partners with thousands of restaurants coast-to-coast, powering millions of orders every month to bring hungry Canadians the food they want, delivered to their door.

Skip was experiencing restructuring, hiring, and acquisitions as a result of hypergrowth, and needed a scalable procurement strategy that worked across departments and geographies.


The challenges

During a time of rapid growth, SkipTheDishes was struggling to get spending under control. An opaque, reactive procurement process was costing purchasing and finance teams a lot of time and money.

  • Manual, error-prone processes: Prior to working with Procurify, Skip’s ordering and approval processes happened verbally, and manual invoice review was eating up a lot of admin time.

  • Chasing after documentation and context: After receiving, team members had to chase after individuals from a 2,300-person company to find the context they needed to process invoices.

  • Static, siloed budgets: A reactive, manual procurement strategy meant that team members lacked visibility, and were missing out on the opportunity to identify cost savings and discounts.

The solution

After implementing Procurify, Skip team members were freed up to focus on more value-add work, and unified spend data has brought them the insights they need to implement a more proactive procurement strategy.

  • Spend and budget visibility: Unified procurement processes highlight opportunities for cost savings and discounts, empowering Skip’s leadership team to implement proactive changes that improve the organization’s bottom line.

  • Streamlined processes: Procurify streamlined day-to-day procurement and AP processes, promoting efficiency and shaving hours off weekly requisitions and invoicing admin tasks.

  • Centralized context: An end-to-end procurement platform provides a complete picture of every spend decision, removing bottlenecks and facilitating three-way matching.

  • Minimized spending risk: As purchase volume increased, Skip was able to strengthen controls to minimize financial risk, ultimately helping the organization manage their money more effectively.

  • ERP system integration: Procurify’s industry-leading ERP and accounting system integrations streamlined and automated workflows between procurement and AP, eliminating redundant and error-prone work.
