Although we know perfectly well what an invoice is its technical definition is "a document that reflects the delivery of a product or the provision of services along with the due date and the amount to be paid in consideration."

Duplicate Invoices With so many invoices being sent to the AP department you are guaranteed to have a few duplicate invoices. Sometimes this could be someone trying to commit fraud but sometimes this could be a genuine mistake. A few common mistakes that can cause duplicate payments include typographical errors such as:

Numbers and Numbers and Records and Books - must be trackable Referring to "invoice #9048" rather than "That invoice I sent you last month I think on a Tuesday" is much easier to track for both you and your client. Assign numbers to your invoices systematically consistently and chronologically. Some people number their invoices by year (for example 2009043 would be the 43rd invoice of 2009). You could also specify a code for the project. For example ABC06 would be the 6th invoice for the ABC project that youre currently working on. Having an invoice and project numbering system keeps everything in line.

Itemized List of Services - must be specific People want to know what theyve paid for. Most people will not pay for something described merely as "Design." Tell them exactly what they have received: e.g. "Design of three-page static website for Sporting Goods Department." Be as specific as possible. In five years would both you and the client know what you meant by your description? Also specify whether the charge is project-based or hourly.

Once the data has been captured from an invoice it has been successfully matched to a PO or it has been approved by the business it is posted automatically to the finance system for payment. Invoices can be retrieved from IMS at any stage the full audit trail and a history of the workflow determines exactly where in the process each invoice is. It is also possible to retrieve invoices directly from their ERP system due to the integration with IMS. The full audit trail is vital as they have to comply with Sarbanes Oxley legislation. The IMS solution is used to assist in this compliance with the audit trail providing a complete history of the lifecycle of each document.

No PO number Invoices that arrive in AP without a PO number can be very problematic which can take the team a lot of man-hours to manually process them. AP may receive non-PO invoices when a supplier has provided products or services to the buyer without receiving a purchase order. Many different challenges can arise when processing non-PO invoices which may include difficulty identifying the purchaser and original authoriser - making the approval process lengthy and a higher risk for errors.

Paper invoices entering the AP department are now scanned into the IMS (Invoice Management Solution) system. Using Automated Data Capture technologies the header information such as invoice total supplier name etc is automatically read from the invoice. The integration between IMS and the ERP then enables this data to be populated directly to register the invoice in the financial system with minimal manual data entry required. If IMS does not recognise the vendor workflow automatically sends this as a query to the business user who can then select whether this is a new vendor to be set up in the ERP or is just a one-off vendor. The integration between IMS and the ERP triggers the creation of the appropriate vendor. This ensures that delays are not created with unknown vendors and speeds up the process of adding new vendors to the finance system.
