Business value

The availability of good metrics can help your managers identify opportunities for greater efficiency, potentially resulting in cost savings. Power BI metrics can also help raise awareness of invoices that didn't make it through the automated process successfully. That information can help accounts payable clerks find and address issues quickly.

Feature details

The Vendor invoice entry workspace lets you focus on vendor invoices that didn't make it through the automated process. Tiles on the workspace list information about vendor invoices that weren't successfully submitted to workflow, imported, or matched to product receipts. The workspace now lets you switch the view to a different company without having to sign in to a different company. Power BI metrics are also provided to give accounts payable managers insight into the efficiencies of vendor invoice automation. This information includes the number of days to process an invoice, the percentage of invoices in the last 30 days that were successfully processed without being touched, the reasons that an invoice failed automation, and additional workflow analytics.
