Williams-Sonoma: Achievements in Productivity Award Runner-up

Williams sonoma ss

Awarded to the company that has posted significant gains in productivity, freeing up treasury’s time to focus on more strategic initiatives. Nominated by 3PO.

Williams-Sonoma - SEA Award


  • Monthly bank-to-book reconciliation process took hours, and sometimes days due to the volume of AP payments.
  • Reporting of aggregated bank transactions without associated detail was an issue.
  • The potential for a small discrepancy to lead to a large and time consuming investigation caused the Treasury and Accounting teams to seek a better solution.

”Williams-Sonoma is an excellent candidate for this award due to the amount of manual reconciliation time eliminated by automation using Kyriba’s GL Reconciliation module”


  • 3PO Consulting worked with Williams-Sonoma to configure advanced GL reconciliation logic to solve this one-to-many reconciliation issue.
  • Bank transactions and journal entries related to AP activity were identified through patterns in the text descriptions to facilitate subtotaling and automated reconciliation in the event of a match.


  • Eliminated the most difficult part of the reconciliation process in addition to the easy reconciliation work, leaving only exceptions for the team to manage.
  • Automation of the most time-consuming part of the process resulted in huge productivity gains across treasury.
