Business value

This feature saves time and labor costs by using the system to automatically match quantities on vendor invoice lines to product receipts. Your employees no longer have to monitor the arrival of goods and then complete the matching process manually.

Feature details

Invoices frequently arrive before the goods do. When the invoice line has a three-way matching policy, someone must match the invoice lines to the posted product receipts after the goods arrive. Now, the system can automatically match posted product receipts to invoice lines for which a three-way matching policy has been defined. The process will run until the matched product receipt quantity is equal to the invoice quantity. As part of this process, you can indicate the maximum number of times the system should try to match product receipts to an invoice line before concluding that the process failed. The match-product-receipt-to-invoice-lines process will run in the background, using a frequency of either hourly or daily. You can run the automated matching process as part of the process for submitting invoices to workflow, or as a standalone process.
