About Land O’Lakes, Inc

A member-owned agricultural cooperative based in the Minneapolis-St. Paul suburb of Arden Hills, Minnesota, focusing on the dairy industry.

Their Challenge

The biggest challenge for Land O’Lakes was that their deductions process was spread across separate systems, namely: Oracle JDE ERP, Revitas for Deductions, Stellent for document management. The procedure involved in deductions management was time-consuming and complex. Cash Application analyst applies cash in Oracle JDE ERP. The deduction is auto-created in Revitas. Deduction analyst researches on the deduction in Revitas If invalid, Denial letter is generated in Revitas, Backups are uploaded into Stellent Customer correspondences are sent via Stellent If valid, apply resolution in Revitas, post to JDE (illustrated below).

An Illustration – Multiple Disparate Systems

They had a lot of interconnected systems.

They needed a solution that could seamlessly blend with them. Additionally, it should be deployed easily, have low cost of integration and should be compatible with the latest software, not to mention eliminate low-value manual tasks.

How HighRadius and a Deductions Cloud Helped

Ready-for-Research on a Single Screen: All information for a particular deduction is available in a single place. The first thing a deduction analyst does at the beginning of the day is to check the worklist. The solution generates a worklist which includes the deductions that have been assigned to that person. From there, the analysts can resolve deductions.

Same system for Valid and Invalid Deductions: If a deduction is valid, it is resolved by the system. In case of a dispute, the deduction goes to the correspondence tab in the same window, for sending correspondence to acquire documents necessary for resolution.

In-depth Information Presentment: Basic information about the deduction such as the amount and payment details are captured in the header. Below the header, there are multiple tabs that aid the analyst in closing the deduction. The claim information are automatically captured and linked to the deduction for speedy resolution.
