Increasing invoice volume, greater process complexity, and ongoing pressure to do more with less – this is the new normal for modern Accounts Payable (AP) departments. Your JD Edwards system manages transactional data, but what about the information and documents received from outside your organization? What about the manual processes resulting in countless hours spent matching invoices to POs and receipts, manually entering invoices into JD Edwards, trying to resolve invoice discrepancies, routing invoices for coding and approval, filing, and more?
You’re not alone. Many organizations struggle with invoice tracking, making on time payments, and even capturing all their early pay discounts, let alone avoiding making duplicate payments. This amounts to extremely high operational costs, process inefficiencies, and missed opportunities that prevent companies from realizing the benefits of having a Best-in-Class AP organization.
How it Works
Accounts Payable Automation will transform your department with an Accounts Payable Automation solution, driven by our industry-leading Enterprise Content Management platform. With intelligent data capture and OCR, workflow automation, and seamless integration with your JD Edwards system, you’ll increase efficiency, gain control, and improve visibility across each stage of your AP processes.
The solution will validate invoice data, perform two-way and three-way matches for your PO based invoices, and route invoice exceptions as well as non-PO invoices for review and approval automatically with its powerful rules-based workflow engine. The results include drastically reducing invoice processing costs, eliminating late fees and duplicate payments, as well as capturing more of your early pay discounts available. Which in turn will allow your AP team to be more efficient, leveraging their skills to more value-added tasks.
JD Edwards Integration
Accounts Payable Automation features a deep and robust real-time integration with JD Edwards. It passes AP Invoice data to a documented JD Edwards interface following the requirements for vouchering AP Invoices.
The integration handles adding the AP invoice into the JD Edwards system and updating the PO items/quantities invoiced as well as the receipts/receiving.
Additionally, Accounts Payable Automation is designed to validate the supplier and invoicing data before submitting requests, therefore minimizing the transaction processing errors.
Additional integration points include the ability to retrieve/view invoices and related documents directly from JD Edwards screens such as Supplier Ledger Inquiry, as well as capturing JD Edwards created documents such as Purchase Orders and AP Checks.
