Identifying opportunities for improvement is relatively easy but embracing them has been harder. Until now, the majority of account payable automation solutions on the market have been designed with large enterprises in mind. These are too expensive and slow to implement and are often unsuitable for their specific needs.

The process of Pearl AP
Pearl AP is an accounts payable solution that manages documents that drive AP processes and maximise the benefits of fast, efficient and precise document invoice processing. Regardless of how documents are received (fax, email, post, EDI etc), our solution captures, organises and delivers them, along with supporting content, to the appropriate individuals for review, approval and automated processing.
Electronic invoices such as emails, PDF, Word, XML can be captured automatically when they are received. Paper based documents via the post can be scanned directly into the system, invoice scanning is a key function of our accounts payable automation solution. Read more...
Documents are stored within a central, secure, fully audited electronic filing cabinet. Whether the document is electronic or scanned, we will capture and validate, extracting all the key information, (As well as if required capture and extract transactional line items).
Matching the captured invoice data either by downloading the PO file or by linking with the client’s GRN/PO system and where available, automatically adding the GL codes.
Through customised workflow documents will be automatically routed around the organisation to the relevant individuals, departments by a variety of methods including supplier, contact and transaction value for approval/authorisation.
Employees can authorise a document from their desk or while on the move from any location where they can connect to the internet via a smartphone or mobile tablet.
Once approved, a transaction file will be created, which can be automatically imported into the organisations ERP/finance application. This removes the need for manual input, resulting in the transaction being inputted correctly first time, without error. The document will remain stored securely and easily accessed via the organisations ERP/Finance solution.

Invoices are now automatically checked against Purchase Orders (POs), Goods Received Notes and the Purchase Order Requisitions. If everything matches, the invoice is seamlessly uploaded into the financial system, ready for payment.
