Payables Module

Credit Memo Reconciliation Workflow, Grid, and Details 

The Payables workflow benefits from a robust Credit Memo Reconciliation workflow, enabled by a Grid to view status and access Credit Memo Reconciliation Details through the signature BuyerQuest search and filter on key Credit Memo fields.  

The Reconcile Credit Memos Grid and Details is available to properly permissioned users to enable quick and easy Credit Memo Reconciliation based on shipping locations. Header and Line-level Exceptions and Status are prominently displayed, along with a listing of related documents: Purchase Orders, Receipts, Invoices, and Credit Memos. Actions such as Reject result in status and history updates and email notifications being sent. 

Automatic Clearance of Invoice Reconciliation Exceptions 

The BuyerQuest system enables a configuration to auto-clear Invoice Reconciliation exceptions when a triggering event occurs. Examples of conditions that may be configured to trigger auto clearance are Purchase Order update, Invoice moving to Denied Status, and Creation of a Credit Memo or Receipt.

Email notifications alert users to an exception being auto cleared, and the Invoice History reflects the auto clearance. 

Email Notification to Requestor for Supplier Comments on Invoice

Email Notifications are sent to Requestors when a Supplier makes a comment on an Invoice, providing timely communication between buyers and suppliers.
