Streamline your invoice approval process!
Automate the process of Invoice Approval for goods or services that have not been goods receipted. For businesses using SAP who have a large sundries and consumables requirement this solution can be particularly beneficial as goods receipts may not be posted.
When invoices are posted in to SAP, under defined circumstances (usually they are non-goods receiptable) they will automatically block. A message will automatically be generated and e-mailed to the person responsible for receiving the goods or service. As these items will typically be charged to a cost centre, the cost centre manager can also be copied.
The approver, who may not be a SAP user, will then be able to click on a link in the e-mail. The link will take the user to a web-application where they can see the details of the invoice and if applicable the purchase order, and they can click on an ‘Approve’, ‘Withhold’ or ‘Reassign’ button.
The benefits of implementing Web Invoice Approval include:
- A component of a fully automated invoice approval process
- Integration with corporate email system
- Use accounts payable resources more effectively
- Faster turnaround of supplier invoices
- Improved supplier relationships
