The Ariba eInvoicing network is fast becoming an industry standard when it comes to electronic invoicing. The efficiency with which you can validate and automate your invoices before entry into an ERP system is unmatched in the industry. However, the Ariba network does not capture invoices that come from certain connection points, including paper and email attachments.
Unless your business is completely digital and your customers function in a totally homogeneous manner, you need a viable supplement to the network. That network is the All Star Software Systems specialty invoice capture to the Ariba Network.
What Does the All Star Software Systems Do for Ariba Network Users?
All Star’s solution will allow you to easily capture paper invoices, email attachment invoices and other invoice transactions (XML, DB, EDI, Excel) that are not originating in the Ariba network. Once captured, the system allows you to automatically extract relevant header and line item data and to validate that data based on; extraction confidence, calculations or ERP validations. Once validated, the PO invoices can be matched against your ERP system and the Non-PO invoices can be coded manually or automated with vendor defaults. At that point, the invoices can be injected into your Ariba workflow solution and follow the Ariba workflows already in place.
The Power of Automation
All Star’s ability to automate functions that would normally require a full-scale manual effort leaves your employees available for the creative and strategic work that expands companies. This level of automation eliminates as much of the effort from invoices that may never be a part of the Ariba network.
