For businesses in Australia and New Zealand who take advantage of electronic invoicing (eInvoicing), they can nor automate the approval and payment processes to save a significant amount of time, money and resources.

Automating approvals of eInvoices for payment

Traditional invoicing processes often involve manual approval workflows, which can be time-consuming and prone to delays. With eInvoicing data, businesses can automate the approval process by setting predefined rules and workflows. For example, invoices can be automatically crossed check with predetermined criteria for approval such as invoice amount, purchase order number, quantities on the order, quantities received and prices on invoice match those on the order. This streamlines the approval process, reduces bottlenecks, and ensures invoices are processed in a timely manner.

Streamlining payments with payment gateways

MessageXchange allows you to set criteria to automate the payment of an eInvoice through our Payment Gateways. Once the approval criteria is deemed to be met, your Gateway can then create the payment and send it onto your bank. MessageXchange is even smart enough to look at things like your company’s cash position, to determine the best payment method. This saves teams time from having to check how payment should be completed.

Conversely, if the approval criteria is not met, an escalation workflow can be invoked for further review. This saves teams time and reduces the risk of paying fraudulent invoices, or even overpaying legitimate invoices.
