Manual processing of purchase invoices is a time-consuming and error-prone process in which it is easy to lose oversight.
The solution is simple with the Spend Cloud’s digital invoice processing, which enables you to automate this labour-intensive process and gain insight, oversight and control of your invoice processing.
The advantages of digital invoice processing
Never lose your invoices again
digitisation of invoice processing means you never have to spend time finding an invoice that needs to be approved. The Spend Cloud captures every step, so the audit trail is also fully trackable.
You minimise the number of manual actions required
by automating the approval process, you minimise the number of manual actions required and you maximise oversight.
The lead time is shortened considerably
invoices automatically go to the appropriate budget holder who can simply approve invoices with a single click via app or desktop, and who also receives a reminder if approval does not take place in good time.
Integration with virtually all financial packages
thanks to integration with over 50 ERP systems, invoices can be processed directly after approval.
Digital invoice processing, how does it work?
Automation and digitisation starts with receipt of the invoices. Paper invoices can be scanned, digital (PDF) and electronic invoices (UBL, XML, PEPPOL) can be processed immediately. This way, you will never lose incoming invoices again because they are now registered in the system.
The Spend Cloud recognises and codes the invoices automatically, it is therefore no longer necessary to do this manually and it greatly reduces the likelihood of errors.
After the invoice has been checked, it automatically goes to the appropriate budget holder by means of the predetermined workflow. This is where the strength of the Spend Cloud comes into its own, because the software is designed in such a way that it needs to be used as little as possible. Thanks to the different options, automatic invoice processing can easily be customised to align it perfectly with the way in which invoices are processed in your company.
Digital invoice processing also makes approval of invoices simple and clear. All those involved can see who needs to approve the invoice, and the budget holder receives a reminder if approval does not take place in good time.
Combining the Invoicing module with the Procurement and Contract Management modules enables approval at the time of procurement, so after step 2 the invoice goes through to payment (step 5) automatically.
After final approval, the invoice is ready for payment in the financial package. It is important that information exchange between systems takes place one-on-one for accurate processing. ProActive can therefore be integrated with a large number of financial packages as standard.
