The Challenge

As organisations look to drive ever-increasing efficiencies and reduce costs, the pressure to maximise existing business systems and automate key processes continues to increase. Many accounts payable processes are still manual and paper-based with inconsistent business communication resulting in lack of control, visibility, and collaboration. How do you eliminate these inherent inefficiencies, optimise core processes, reduce costs, avoid human errors and duplication, improve cash flow predictability, and maximise your investment in JDE with a quantifiable ROI?

 


Our Solution

Bottomline’s document and accounts payable automation solution for JD Edwards automates much of the accounts payable process providing complete document and data capture processes, linking the captured invoice data directly to the desired JD Edwards application for automated matching of PO-based invoices, or workflow exception processing where a match cannot be found.

It has been uniquely designed for use with and within a customer’s existing JD Edwards environment, providing seamless integration and visibility for users. This flexibility supports existing infrastructure investments and helps to maintain a lower cost of ownership by eliminating the need for incremental ERP licenses.
