To manually process a single invoice cost from €15 to €50, depending your type of business and the technology involved. By automating your AP workflow with Exflow, that cost can be cut by up to 50% per invoice. For an enterprise, the potential saving is substantial.
Cost control is critical for any profitable business. A manual process won’t provide full visibility until the invoice is posted. When transitioning to an electronic process you will immediately know when each invoice is received by the company and what its current status is.
Increasing regulation of corporate data communication makes compliance a growing priority for companies and organizations. Often the law is complex, and penalties for noncompliance can be significant. ExFlow ensures that your company will meet all compliance regulations, at all times.
Eliminating unnecessary manual handling and human error in invoice management guarantees a faster, more accurate and secure process. With ExFlow you achieve full transparency as a complete log of all accounting transactions provide a failsafe audit trail.
From matching supplier invoices with purchase orders to creating approval workflows, managing users and roles, and automating email notifications, every aspect of the AP and invoice process is improved with ExFlow.
ExFlow supports all type of invoices, from paper to file based electronic formats and webservice based streamed invoices.
Invoice information such as item number, unit price, etc. is identified and used to match invoices with available purchase orders down to line level.
Approval workflows may be based on supplier, account, item, miscellaneous charges, project, fixed asset, reference person, dimensions, line and total amounts.
By combining position hierarchies with approval workflows, it is easy to set rules that are suited to your organisation and ensure compliance.
ExFlow manages both users and roles. A user can be assigned to multiple roles and all users belonging to a role receive notifications of invoices pending approval.
General expense invoices can be coded against accounts, projects and fixed assets. Invoices involving regular contracts (e.g., phone or leasing) can be managed automatically.
Approvers automatically receive an email with a link to the approval interface and a list of all the invoices pending approval. Overdue invoices are clearly highlighted.
The accounting department maintains full control. They can see all pending invoices, approval status, the account entry, who approved it, and the current and next approver in the workflow.
Approvers can access and add invoice attachments (e.g., spreadsheets, agreements, etc.) and comments for the next approver and accounting department, with a full history readily accessible.
Accounting departments will appreciate the option to accrue all non-posted invoices via an automatically created journal. This function is used at the end of a month or when compiling annual accounts.
The approver can search among invoices and produce a variety of reports, such as all invoices from a specific supplier, department, or project. Reports can be filtered by status, approval, date, etc.
A colleague can be appointed to approve the original approver’s invoices for a period of time. Delegation can be enabled either by the approver in the event of a planned absence or by the accounting department.
ExFlow offers full support for mobile devices, witth all ExFlow functionality as in the standard approval workflow. Easily access and view the invoice as well as approve, reject, and add comments.
