Intake different types of invoices from any channel
Suppliers can also upload invoices through the InSITE’s built in supplier self-service portal
The AP team can receive invoices through different sources such as Email, Scanned copies, EDIs, iDOC, Supplier Self Service Portal, Procurement Platforms etc. InSITE’s built-in supplier self-service portal allows suppliers to upload invoices and track their progress on a single platform.
The Accounts Payable (AP) staff manage their daily activities through personalized interfaces where the invoices are automatically routed. Your AP team can manage the entire journey of an invoice through InSITE as a single, centralized platform.
Invoices are scanned and the data is transferred into the system
Invoice details are automatically extracted and pre-populated, both the header and line level. No need to key in invoice data.
Layers of ML and managed services improve the performance of future invoices.
After manual review, InSITE recognizes your override changes and applies that logic to future invoices
The Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology works with the Applexus Intelligence Data Extraction and Recognition (AIDER) engine to extract data from the invoice without manual intervention. Layers of ML help acquire very high accuracy as the system gets fed with more invoices during the usage years.
Suppose the data isn't extracted while processing a new invoice template; in that case, the AP team can intuitively capture the details into the system by simply pointing out the area where the data resides. This feature eliminates manual errors at the data entry stage and helps the system learn the layout, and ensure better accuracy in future invoices of similar layouts.
Potential duplicate and fraudulent invoices are detected and flagged in this stage. The system follows 2-way matching (GR and Invoice) for all non-PO-based invoices and 3-way matching (PO, GR, and Invoice) for all PO-based invoices to establish whether an invoice ties with the information stored.
InSITE can execute line-item wise checks with the information already available within SAP to flag any mismatch. This helps the AP team eliminate fraud or errors that happen due to human negligence while processing an invoice. The tedious task of matching every element of the invoice with the information available in the system is automated through InSITE.

All payments are made as per the scheduled due date on the invoice. AP executives can also log in to execute final approval post initial clearance. The AP team also has the flexibility to put on hold or separate specific invoices from payment batches for paying them later. Approvers can also manage their activities on the go from any device.

Minimize delays in obtaining approvals through automated alerts and notifications
Requests from suppliers about payment status can become annoying after a while. Additionally, coordinating with suppliers through multiple channels, such as email, phone, instant messenger tools, and other channels, can be time-killing and diminish your productivity levels. Suppliers will not receive notifications and alerts for any action performed on an invoice and cleared payments.
InSITE’s supplier self-service portal lets you communicate and collaborate with suppliers with ease. The Supplier Collaboration Portal serves as a common collaboration workbench, where both suppliers can upload invoices, check the status of invoices, and view updates on PO. Suppliers can also directly chat with the AP team through a user-friendly interface.
Automated communications mean suppliers are informed throughout every step of the invoice and payment process.
Status notifications via email and online self-service access to invoice and payment history cuts time wasted on inquiries and resolution.
All the documents, their changes, and the concerned person who made these changes are recorded in a detailed audit trail. InSITE can save the documents that don’t need immediate attention in a separate DMS, which can be leveraged during an audit. This allows AP teams to pull out data and additional documents on any invoice in the future. These features help to stay compliant-proof and avoid penalties and statutory costs arising from lost or misplaced documents.
InSITE also offers a plethora of reports and dashboards to provide the AP team with a unified view of spend analytics. Organizations have the option to co-innovate reports of their choices within InSITE to avoid recording data and analysis in Excel or hard copies.
Audit trails maintain a deep history of user and supplier activity
No need for your finance team to maintain hard copies or spreadsheets
