Most customers are aware of EDI processing of procurement vouchers (Inbound Invoice/Match (Doc ID 625507.1) and Voucher Match Automation (Doc ID 1499920.1). Not every customer is aware that the Evaluated Receipts (R43800) process (Doc ID 625420.1) can also be used to automate AP voucher processing without requiring the invoice be sent from the supplier in the form of a pre-formatted text file.
When run in “proof mode” the Evaluated Receipts (R43800) program will populate the EDI tables without creating the voucher right away. Consider the flexibility this offers:
After all the changes are made to the EDI tables, running the EDI Invoice Match (R470412) will automatically create the Voucher.
Evaluated Receipts (R43800) processing offers simpler implementation and more flexibility than EDI or Voucher Match Automation but it does not receive as much attention and is often overlooked. If you are considering ways to eliminate or reduce the use of manual Voucher Match (P0411/P4314) processing, make sure you look into Evaluated Receipts (R43800) processing.
