Unimarket 5.3 introduces functionality that makes our invoicing solutions even better! Invoice-matching exceptions will be routed for approval, and we've updated invoice integration to include supplier-provided accounting information. Communities can also now customize supplier invite text and we've updated the supplier profile.
Release 5.3 has been released to Demo for review and will be in Production on Monday the 23rd of January.
Route Invoice Matching Exceptions for Approval
Accounts Payable teams often have to do a good bit of running around to seek approval for invoice exceptions. We're making this process easier on you and AP by ensuring that all approval tasks go to the correct people. To do this, we've built an invoice approval workflow for all those invoices that fail matching. If an invoice fails matching due to price, we place it into a new On Hold status and then allow it to be routed for approval to the buyer and the correct delegated approvers. Once the variance is approved, it will match and get paid.
Allow Communities to Customize the Supplier Invite Email
It's now possible to craft your own email to suppliers when inviting them to register on Unimarket. Include a personalized message, add your logo, and more - the supplier invite email can be a reflection of your organization! We’ve also added the ability for you to upload the suppliers you want to invite with Tags, Search Terms and Buyer Groups so these do not need to be added after the supplier has registered.
Allow Suppliers to Send Accounting Within Invoices
When blanket orders are used, the supplier who is invoicing you may know more about where a product or service is charged than you do. For example, your telecoms supplier will have all the phone usage information. When processing invoices against a blanket order, we have now made it possible for a supplier to send the accounting information within the electronic invoice so the task of coding invoices is made easier.
Supplier Profile Changes
Gathering good supplier information is becoming more important than ever. We have some important changes in the works pertaining to the information we gather about suppliers during the registration process and, starting with this release, we're allowing for a better distinction between individuals and companies.
We continue to work on the email inbox for invoices and integration of the invoice scanning tool.
