What is it?
Electronic invoicing, or E-Invoicing, is the electronic exchange of an invoice document between a buyer and a supplier. Compared to traditional invoicing, e-invoicing requires less administrative costs and has a proven record of reduced errors associated with data capture and delivery.
E-invoicing expedites the invoice receipt process. Automating this process via workflow capability enables you to pay your suppliers more quickly and capture early pay discounts. Electronic invoicing reduces costs, optimizes efficiency and maximizes business relationships.
Self-Service Vendor Web Portal
With this service, vendors are able to access a self-service portal which provides answers to their inquiries. Suppliers can verify their invoice and payment status at any time, without calling into the AP department. As supplier invoice and payment information is updated, the portal is updated to show the same information to suppliers. Reduce the number of inbound supplier inquiries and free AP staff to focus on core responsibilities.
Electronic Invoice Processing
The Electronic Invoice Processing service allows you to exchange invoice data directly with your suppliers by automating the invoice preparation and delivery. E-Invoicing allows a PO to be switched to an invoice and consolidated & line items to be adjusted. Image uploads, direct file integration (EDI, XML) and Web entry forms are supported.
Workflow & Exception Management
This service automatically matches supplier invoices against POs and other documents and configures internal invoice compliance validations to ensure supplier invoices flow through an internal workflow approval process prior to review and payment. With this service, notifications can also be sent to suppliers for any dispute handling.
