We are excited to announce we have launched enhanced invoicing functionality within Current SCM! The system now supports tracking and cost allocations at the line-level (of the Purchase Order, Service Order). In addition, we have launched an approval workflow to support the invoice attestation process.
Current SCM supports both a simple, and detailed process for tracking invoices:
While the additional data provided by tracking detailed invoices is extremely valuable, we wanted to ensure we wanted to minimize the data-entry burden on our users. With that in mind we have add a number of helpers to automate the allocation of the invoice value against the lines:
This action will apply a specified percentage across all lines. This is useful for milestone payments, or deposits.
Full Payment Invoicing
Automatically pay only the unpaid value against the committed value of the order.
The total invoice value will be applied sequentially to lines items (against their commitments) until their balance reaches zero or the remaining amount reaches zero.
Invoicing attestation refers to the process of verifying and approving invoices before they can be paid. It is an important step in the procurement process to ensure that vendors are paid accurately for the goods or services they have provided, and that the payment is approved by the appropriate personnel within the organization.
The attestation process involves a review of the invoice to ensure that the goods or services have been received and meet the specifications of the purchase order. Once the review is complete, the invoice is forwarded to the appropriate approver, who verifies that the invoice is accurate and approves it for payment.
The invoicing attestation process helps to prevent errors and fraud, and ensures that vendors are paid in a timely and accurate manner. It also provides an important record of transactions that can be used for auditing and reporting purposes.
Our new Order Items Invoicing Report provides a project-wide look at the invoice status at the line level to help your team keep on top of its commitments and ensure control, and accurate cost projections.
The Current SCM team is really excited to get this functionality into the hands of our users. We feel the ability to support in application invoice attestation will further enhance Current SCM as the best procurement system for project based organizations.
