  • Save initial capital investment
  • Save on staff training (finance and IT)
  • Save on on-going system support contract

  • Supplier invoice number
  • Purchase order number
  • Invoice date
  • Invoice net value
  • Invoice tax value
  • Invoice gross value

  • Basic invoice variable data
  • Basic invoice variable data and line items


  • Different nominal codes can also be added and correctly recorded against each line item
