Multichannel/OCR

 

Comarch provides a comprehensive invoice management solution to optimize both the accounts payable and accounts receivable processes.

In the case of accounts receivable, the platform guarantees conversion from the original format into several formats required by customers, and distribution via various channels, e.g. integration, Web-EDI, web portal or e-mail.

For accounts payable, the solution ensures the receipt and registration of invoices in various formats and with the use of multiple input sources, such as EDI, e-mail, web portal and mail (scanning). Automatic indexing, based on OCR engines and automatic data import, ensures a noticeable reduction of time spent on invoice registration. Thanks to sophisticated and self-learning algorithms, you do not need to bother about many invoice layouts.

Multichannel/OCR

Three-Way Match

 

The purpose of the three-way match is to avoid paying incorrect and perhaps fraudulent invoices. “Match” refers to the comparison of quantities, price per unit, terms, etc. appearing on the vendor's invoice, with the information on the purchase order, and quantities actually received.

Automatic validation of these three related documents allows not only faster processing, but also – more importantly – the possibility to capture potential incompatibilities and handle them efficiently through a well-defined workflow.

 

3-Way Match

Capturing and secure archiving of documents in any form (including structured documents such as ERP printouts), rapid search facilities and access from anywhere are just some functionalities of this solution.

Internal Workflows

 

The solution allows the user to design and manage document-related aspects of business processes such as billing invoices, purchase processes, contract management and master data management. It facilitates and automates processes based on the circulation of documents, while maintaining compliance with legal requirements.

Moreover, the solution ensures efficient management of business processes in every area of company's operations. Processes are defined with the graphical process designer, and tasks are performed by participants according to their business roles. The system can automatically initiate processes based on a variety of business events.

Internal Workflows

Multi-ERP Integration

 

One of the main challenges, especially in global companies, is the number of different ERP systems or versions. In this case, Comarch Multi-ERP Integration ensures data integrity and avoids data entry duplication, while at the same time enhancing employee convenience and accelerating their work. 

Multi-ERP Integration

Dynamic Discounting

 

The solution enables suppliers to be offered a discount in return for early payment of an invoice. This leads to:

  • Saving of money, as invoices are paid earlier
  • Fast access to cash for your suppliers
  • Strengthening of relationships with suppliers
  • Improved control over cash

Dynamic Discounting

Invoice management based on Enterprise Content Management system

 

Comarch AP/AR Automation enables effective invoice management, facilitating fast access to electronic documents and reports presenting the current status of invoice-related data. Invoices may be uploaded by a vendor themselves, thanks to a dedicated web portal. Vendors can also use the portal to offer products or update reference data. Documents are stored securely in a central repository, so they can be searched, preserved, archived and delivered for audits. Invoice processing is based on a workflow engine that enables the correct approval mechanisms to be set, and reflects the structure of document verification and acceptance or issue management.

Thanks to automated invoice processing, your organization can both avoid penalty fees related to delayed payments, and gain financial incentives due to dynamic discounting. The effect will strengthen relationships with suppliers while lowering invoice costs. Automated Invoice Processing is your company’s route to full invoice automation.
