oAppsNET AP Portal Can Help Maximize Resources
This graphic shows the average number of days between the date an invoice is scanned into WebCenter Capture and the date it is validated by an AP Accountant.
The AP Dashboard allows AP team members to monitor tasks in WebCenter Capture, WebCenter WFR, the AP Portal, and the interface table between the portal and EBS on the same page. In addition, EBS holds are shown on the dashboard. Prior to the AP Portal, AP users would have to log in to each application for task counts and task details in that application.
AP Metrics are now available on a dashboard as well. The metrics included are Discounts at Risk, Past-Due Invoices, a 12-month Invoice Trend line graph, and two bar graphs showing Invoice Count and Invoice Amount for the last 12 months. An AP user with proper security can click on the graphics of these two dashboards to view the data behind the chart. The data can be downloaded plus the user can create charts, group the data or create pivot tables within the portal.
Identify edIata elements that could be completed by both the AP team and AP customers within the new coding form and this change can streamline the review once the invoice arrived in Oracle in EBS.
