Vendor Invoice Portal
Empower vendors and suppliers with a self-service portal for purchase order/non-purchase order invoice entry. Increase communications and collaboration with your Vendor and Supplier Network and eliminate data entry for your Payables team, and reduce internal cost.
An effective way to further automate the payables process is to enable vendors to submit their invoices electronically through what’s often called vendor self-service, or a vendor portal. This eliminates the need to rekey the invoice into the procurement software, jump-starting the entire approval and payment process. Vendor self-service portals have other benefits as well, including the ability for vendors to maintain their own contact information and respond to Requests-for-Quote (RFQ).
