|We're excited to announce that Unimarket 5.4 is rolling out the new Invoice Inbox, which allows suppliers to email their invoices directly into your Unimarket community so your AP team can quickly match the emailed invoices to orders. We've also added the ability to quickly view documents on screen without the need to download them, as well as a few other enhancements to continue to improve your user experience.|
Release 5.4 has been released to Demo for review and will be in Production on Monday the 6th of February.
Using Unimarket's invoice integration is the best way to streamline your invoicing function and remove all the paper processing. However, we recognize that you deal with thousands of suppliers, many of which don't have the capability or volume to justify integration. For this reason, we have added new functionality that provides a dedicated email address and inbox for each customer so your non-integrated suppliers can email their invoices to you directly and easily. The new invoice functionality also does some clever things (if we do say so ourselves) such as automatically finding the matching order if the supplier puts that in the email subject line and detecting the supplier from their email address. AP can then quickly process emailed invoices against the correct order and submit them for matching. The Invoice Inbox also lays the framework for the highly anticipated invoice scanning solution that is currently in the works, and that will read data from invoices in your Invoice Inbox. Stay tuned for more on the invoice scanning solution coming soon.
View Attachments Without Downloading Them
Small eye, big time saver! While this new functionality looks like just a small icon on your screen, it's actually a big thing save you time! You can now click the "eye" icon next to attachments to view a preview online in your browser rather than downloading the whole attachment first. This is hugely helpful if you're simply trying to review the original invoice sent by a supplier, view contract documents, look at attached justification documents, and more, and just want a quick preview. The attachments open in a separate browser tab so you can easily switch between the attachment and the Unimarket system.
Supplier Bank Account Details (Australia and New Zealand)
Suppliers in Australia and New Zealand can now add their bank account details to their supplier profile and have this information passed to their customers. We've also added a notification to customers and supplier admin users for when these details are changed.
Search within Account Codes
To make it easier to find account codes, we have changed the account code search (in the pop-up only) to look within the description and the code. You no longer need to know the exact description or code, so it's easier to find what you're looking for, even if you don't have the exact description. For example, if you are looking for "Fleet Fuel" but all you know is "fuel," then our new search will find anything with the word "fuel" or "fleet" included (or even a partial word - such as "build" in "building").
Other Small Changes
- We have added the Lite supplier created date on the supplier summary.
- We have removed the justification section in checkout for Release Orders because they are part of a pre-approved Blanket Order.
Big things are on the horizon: We are introducing an invoice scanning tool for use with the Invoice Inbox, as well as the ability to compare search result items within a shortlist before adding them to the cart. Keep an eye out for exciting things to come soon!
