Executive Summary

Cox Communications, Inc. wanted to contribute to the Cox Enterprises companywide initiative to reduce environmental impact and green the company proactively, solidly establishing a leadership role in the communications industry for sustainability efforts and minimize paper use and increase efficiency throughout the communications provider's high volume business by migrating processes - at both the corporate and cable-system levels - to "One-touch," electronic processes. Cox Communications, Inc. implemented Oracle iProcurement to automate the entire procure-to-pay process, ultimately increasing efficiency and reducing paper-use company-wide by a total of 3.3 tons (or the equivalent of 19,740 pounds) of CO2 emissions in the first eight months and reduced the number of accounts payable transactions by 26% in the first eight months due to increased purchase card (p-card) use.
