IntelliChief ECM 4.2 Expands AP Automation Invoice Matching Capabilities

IntelliChief, a provider of automated document management and workflow enterprise content management (ECM) solutions, announces IntelliChief ECM 4.2 expands AP automation invoice matching capabilities, from both document capture and workflow phases.

IntelliChief provides Accounts Payable professionals an easy-to-use updated interface, while expanding automated capabilities supporting 2-way matching (Invoice to PO) and 3-way matching (Invoice to PO to Receiver). This processing occurs in both initial document capture (IntelliChief’s front-end Capture Enterprise) and in workflow, providing expansive safeguards and validations accompanying automation’s speed and accuracy.

In-tandem with IntelliChief, information from the user’s ERP is utilized to perform matching. IntelliChief keeps track of the PO quantity open and the Receiving quantity available by saving needed information when an Invoice line item is matched to a PO/Receiver. This can be set to identify by PO Number, Item Number/ID, Unit Price, Line Total, PO Quantity Ordered, Receiving Quantity, or two Miscellaneous fields of the user’s choice.

This setup includes multiple Match Methods, where receiving quantity qualifies exact match, based on first in, first used, or a combination of both. It includes options for a Variance percent, amount and type for the Invoice to PO fields (Unit Price, Line Total, Quantity).

Notably, new matching features of Unit of Measure conversion capability simplify processing of standardized orders, and Part Number cross-referencing increases accuracy when obsolete numbers are referenced in the Invoice. Both enhance straight-through processing volume.

Manual matching capabilities are also enabled from both Capture Enterprise’s Verify window and subsequently from IntelliChief’s system Workbench. Manual matching provides users with more PO and Receiver information and options. Users can select one or more Receivers to match to an invoice line item. As a failsafe, if the IntelliChief automatic matching determines the manual matching is possibly incorrect, a warning message is displayed prompting the user to confirm the match. The Manual Matching window also includes the ability for the user to complete GL coding.

IntelliChief ECM provides a smooth, robotic process automation (RPA) transition from costly manual document management and workflow functions. Its industry-awarded AI-powered document capture enables users imaging capability of any paper or electronic format, indexing contents and validating with data in their ERP and line of business applications. It lifecycle-manages all related documentation and facilitates optimized interdepartmental process workflow, with real-time analytic visibility. The system provides desktop and mobile access, and integrates with all enterprise resource planning and business systems
