Pre-Blue Onion Experience

Supergoop's Corporate Controller, Cristina Ceballos, recounts their prior struggles with manual invoice creation for direct-to-consumer orders. According to Cristina, "Prior to using Blue Onion, our team manually created invoices for our direct-to-consumer orders. With a high volume of orders ranging from 40,000 to 200,000 per month, importing each order into our general ledger system was impractical. This resulted in accuracy issues and a tedious and inefficient process."

Discovering Blue Onion

Upon joining Supergoop, Cristina was introduced to Blue Onion's capabilities through a demo. She explains, "When I joined in August, I was introduced to Blue Onion's capabilities through a demo. I quickly realized the potential benefits and how it could provide a more efficient and accurate solution for our revenue recording and reconciliation."

The platform significantly reduced the time required for revenue reconciliation and provided a more accurate and transparent view of our financial transactions."

The cash-in-transit feature helps us reconcile accounts receivable at month-end and track cash expected and received. The ability to export payout data by processor further assists in reconciling bank activity."
