Automate Processes with Touchless Invoice
A “touchless invoice” means that the invoice is received electronically and automatically matched against a purchase order or contract. If the invoice meets all regulatory requirements, it is automatically sent on for payment.
2 and 3 Way Matching
All invoices are automatically matched against the corresponding PO at the header or line level according to predefined business rules and tolerances. Any invoices matching within approved tolerances can be sent directly to the ERP for payment. If any information is missing or incorrect it can be sent to the proper approver to be corrected and matched manually.

Tracking supplier performance, commodity purchases, matching statistics, vendor spend etc. can all be facilitated in the reporting system. All reports provide a summary result set which can be drilled into to see specific details and actual images.
