Table Lookup for Invoice Approval and Reconciliation Rules

Summary

The addition of lookup tables for invoice approval and new reconciliation rules offer robust efficiency gains in the invoice approval and reconciliation workflow.  Determination of responsible approvers for invoice approval and reconciliation can be configured to use a lookup table, saving effort in rule configuration by consolidating rules for the same condition but involving different approvers.

Our comprehensive treatment of invoice approval and invoice reconciliation rules functionality offers a host of important benefits to flexibly support your business processes. 

Details

  • Configuration options allow the approver to be explicitly specified or to be determined through use of a lookup table. 
  • For both invoice approval and invoice reconciliation rules, similar lookup values with different approvers are placed in different sets. The applicable set value determines the approvers for the rule.
  • An exception handler role provides a fall back reconciler if the specified reconciler is inactive.
