Common Challenges

  • Incompatible invoice data formats and transmission methods require manual data input
  • Invoice processing can be a tedious, time-consuming and inefficient process for both Accounts Receivable (AR) and Accounts Payable (AP) organizations
  • Manual reconciliation of invoices to POs is error-prone, resulting in longer supplier wait times for payment, increasing days sales outstanding (DSO)

What is Invoice Automation?

A supplier’s system will generate an invoice once a transaction is shipped or completed. Invoice Automation pulls invoice data from the supplier’s eCommerce, ERP or other order management systems, translates the data into a format compatible with the buyer’s preferred invoice delivery requirements.

This version of the invoice is then seamlessly delivered directly to the buyer’s eProcurement or ERP system to be approved and routed for payment.

PunchOut

Buyer selects a supplier within the eProcurement system, is routed to the supplier’s eCommerce site to shop, then transfers the cart data back to their purchasing system. Order details are then routed by eProcurement for the appropriate approvals.

Purchase Order (PO) Automation

A PO is generated in the eProcurement system, then the buyer sends the PO from the eProcurement system to the supplier in a data format that can be ingested by suppliers’ systems.

Purchase Order Acknowledgment (POA)

Once the request is received by the supplier, a POA is generated with order details confirming that the PO was received and is sent back to the Buyer’s systems.

Advanced Shipping Notice (ASN)

The supplier’s eCommerce system will send the buyer an ASN containing additional shipment and tracking information in a format that can be automatically accepted into the Buyer’s systems.
