The challenge

As part of your daily approval processes there are quite a few ‘superfluous’ manual steps to be taken within your JD Edwards software. If you have to deal with recording, confirming and approving invoices and orders on a daily basis, you are probably familiar with printed documents which stay at people’s desks for unknown reasons, missing paperwork, delayed processes causing business risks (i.e. deliveries not on time) and many other duplicate steps in these processes. Getting a headache by only reading this intro? Then please read why JD Edwards’ Approval Automation is the solution for you!

How it works

Every time a transaction is created within JD Edwards, an email is generated from within the system and directed to the appropriate approver or group of approvers. The email content will include a detailed description of the transaction (down to line item level and also in the form of an amalgamated group of line level requisitions, where appropriate).
Detail will include; (e.g. for a purchase order) supplier, item(s), order location, currency and price.

The approver can either accept or reject (in the case of a purchase order this can be at an individual line item level) from within the received email. The approver either approves or rejects by replying to the email. The reply email is then translated into a structured command that’s returned and recorded automatically within JD Edwards.


JD Edwards Integration

A generic approval engine that’s integrated with various JD Edwards processes to provide approval functionality via any remote device with an email client.
The software comes as an add-on to JD Edwards and has been designed to speed up and enhance standard JD Edwards approval processes. The solution works with all standard email protocols to facilitate remote approvals seamlessly i.e. without the need to sign in to JD Edwards.
