How Match Excption is it going to transform your business in PeopleSoft 9.2?

PeopleSoft Payables 9.2 delivers Matching Exceptions Analysis to streamline the Invoice-to-Pay process by providing visibility into the invoice matching history. The Matching Exceptions Analysis tool provides three dimensions to analyze the matching history: a supplier view, buyer view and a rules point of view.

This new Accounts Payable functionality provides a better understanding of the supplier, buyer and rules. This understanding leads to better support of the buyer in their daily work and offers them training where they need it. It also provides tools for the buyers to renegotiate contracts with suppliers. Finally, it helps you to adjust your matching rules.

This is the Third in our Series on Electronic Invoicing.

Last week we talked about Big Savings with EIPP. This week, we’ll focus on the Accelerated Returns on Investment (ROI) of Implementing an Electronic Invoicing Presentment and Payment (EIPP) Solution using two models proposed by Ataway.

The flexible nature of Electronic Invoicing allows for a phased approach to move from paper to electronic invoicing, as we noted in the previous post. EIPP provides a way to centralize invoices and increase visibility for buyers and suppliers. Electronic Invoicing also improves cash flow information, allowing it to be retrieved immediately. This will ease business decisions and allow for a more agile trading model. If your organization has PeopleSoft Financials, we encourage you to look at the eSettlements and Financial Gateway parts of Cash Management to leverage the full EIPP Solution. However, some obstacles may still get in the way, such as time, supplier participation and security. Of course, this raises an obvious question: How can Organizations successfully achieve a fast ROI when implementing an EIPP solution?

This is the Second in our Series on Electronic Invoicing.

Last week we talked about how to decide if EIPP was right for your business. This week, we’ll focus on Measuring the Savings and Return on Investment (ROI) of Implementing an EIPP Solution

To calculate ROI, you’ll need to find the cost of implementation and quantify the benefits in term of cash and when they occur. It is critical for your organization that you properly quantify the benefits. “Fewer errors”, “less disputes on the phone”, “less match errors” -- these are benefits that are not quantifiable or useful for ROI calculations. So what are some appropriate elements needed to calculate ROI?
