Process Director for Accounts Payable
The core concept of Process Director for Accounts Payable is its integration into SAP. It leverages your existing SAP-infrastructure including authority and authorization structures but also the underlying master and transactional data, that are required for invoice validations.
The solution provides the functionality to centrally view and process (change/post) incoming invoices of all types, to handle exceptions directly via workflow, to check the workflow status or workflow history, to recall or restart workflows and to reverse incorrect documents.
Captured invoice data is validated when entering the system using SAP master data and transactional data (e.g. vendor master data and purchase orders).
Information that is required for invoice posting, such as SAP vendor number, tax codes, goods receipt, duplicate check, is automatically determined using advanced search algorithms and logic. Automatic line item matching is also used when needed. Therefore two or three way matching is also done completely automatic.
Once data is complete and error free an automatic posting attempt is performed through the standard SAP-functionality, proving a no-touch flow for these documents. Unprocessed documents need to be corrected by an AP clerk using intuitive and simple interfaces with access to all invoice data.
