Combined with the power and utility of VISUAL, SourceDay's automated PO exception management software brings key departments together. If you’re still using manual, outdated entry processes for PO changes, then PO collaboration might just be what you need to transform your procurement team.
But why stop at PO collaboration? Manufacturing companies know how difficult it is to match and voucher invoices in VISUAL. One invoice may include parts from several POs and each PO could be dozens of lines long. But, with SourceDay’s AP Automation solution, you can process your direct-spend invoices automatically, from PO matching to receipts. Automated 3-Way Matching by PO Lines improves operational success and continuous improvement in an area that is often overlooked, but is an immediate win for profitability.
