Business value

Submitting imported invoices to workflow automatically saves accounts payable professionals time that they would otherwise have spent manually editing each vendor invoice.

Feature details

As part of a touchless accounts payable invoicing process, you can choose to have the system automatically submit an imported invoice to workflow. The submit-to-workflow process will run as a background process, using a frequency that you can specify, either hourly or daily. You can also require the system to match product receipts to invoice lines automatically, before submitting the invoice to workflow. To ensure that the invoice can be processed straight through, without manual intervention, an automated posting task must be included in the workflow configuration. Invoices that are related to purchase orders and invoices that contain a non-PO procurement category, and non-stocked lines, can be submitted to workflow automatically.
