The document process automation solution provider and cloud computing firm, Esker, has recently announced the availability of a new solution integration with Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne ERP software being called the Accounts Payable Automation Solution. The integration will provide clients with better process efficiency and productivity across the lifecycle of vendor invoice operation. Esker is already a gold-level member of the Oracle Partner Network and helps customers in ERP integration and business operations.
Esker’s Accounts Payable Automation Solution is a single solution for document processing that automates, streamlines and simplifies accounts payable (AP) processes, including invoice verification, approval and mobile support. According to Esker, AP automation can help businesses receive and enter invoices up to 65 per cent faster, lower processing costs by 60 per cent and be accurate upto 99 per cent.
Customers using JD Edwards EnterpriseOne can leverage the value they have invested in their ERP system while taking advantage of specific features like a Quick solution setup that connects Accounts Payable solution and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, Automatic supplier and invoice data synchronization that helps leverage JD Edwards EnterpriseOne data to support full AP process automation.
The AP solution also features an invoice posting error management that pushes invoices to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne if an error occurs. The solution also automates purchase orders and non-PO invoice postings to make them auditable and enhances in-the-road invoice accessibility through its mobile invoice approval application.
Esker claims that AP workflow outside JD Edwards EnterpriseOne delivers better business continuity with 24/7/365 access, non-JD Edwards EnterpriseOne user approval capability, easier training and greater user acceptance. It enables users to conveniently access the original invoice image and processing data directly from the ERP invoice record and updates invoice payment status information automatically.
“We are helping our customers maximize their JD Edwards EnterpriseOne investment with efficient and seamless solution integration — implementation is quicker, user adoption is enhanced and ROI is rapidly achieved. As we reinforce our presence in the Oracle business ecosystem, we will continue to deliver new integration capabilities to provide customers with even more value as they address AP automation,” says Jean-Michel Bérard, CEO, Esker.
