How Accounts Payable Process Automation Works
1. Requisition Submitted
The Purchase to Pay process is initiated by the completion of a requisition form, captured through scanning, web forms submittal or email.
2. Email for Approval
After the form is captured, it is automatically routed by email for review, approval and further routing. Once approved, a purchase order is generated for vendor distribution.
3. Invoice Scanned
When the invoice is received from the vendor, it is then scanned into GlobalSearch®, streamlining data processing while eliminating errors in manual entry.
4. Three-Way Match
GlobalSearch will then automatically match your incoming invoices to their respective purchase orders and packing slips.
5. Invoice Approval
After the three-way match is confirmed, the invoice will be automatically routed for final approval and payment.
6. Feeds into Financial System
Purchase to Pay can then feed high value data to QuickBooks®, Microsoft Dynamics® and other leading financial systems to accommodate bookkeeping needs.
