Increasing Speed, Accuracy and Control in AP Processes
Most corporate AP functions have at their core the need to maintain and regularly interface with an ERP or other host accounting system for general ledger and budget management. For too many organizations, AP remains challenged by inefficient processes and a blizzard of paper-based invoices that limit the speed, accuracy and controls critical to successful management of outgoing payables.
Transform AP, Bottomline’s integrated invoice processing solution for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne delivers against all of these requirements and more. Transform AP provides complete document and data capture processes, linking the captured invoice data directly to the desired ERP application for automated matching of PO-based invoices, or workflow exception processing where a match cannot be found.
Transform AP has been uniquely designed for use with both with and within a customer’s existing ERP environment, providing seamless integration and visibility for everyday (AP) users, while providing the same view of relevant invoice data to non-AP approvers with a convenient Web interface. This flexibility supports existing infrastructure investments and helps to maintain a lower cost of ownership by eliminating the need for incremental ERP licenses.
With Transform AP, organizations realize improved invoice visibility and accelerated processing cycles. They also benefit from tighter enforcement of financial and legal compliance regulations with a fully auditable record of each invoice and payment transaction, both inside and outside of the host ERP.
