Purchase order matching

Module: Accounts Payables >> Area: Invoice automation >> Deliverable: PO Matching

  • Use case: Accounts Payable teams utilize Purchase Orders (POs) as a means to regulate expenditures and oversee inventory management.

  • Summary of update: Centime takes the pain out of PO-based invoice processing, by automatically linking incoming and comparing invoices with purchase orders and receipts, flagging any mismatches, and enabling AP managers to easily connect with other stakeholders to resolve these mismatches. This significantly reduces the time taken to process each PO-Invoice while enforcing proper controls and reducing risk.
