Requisitions and Approvals
SpendMap supports a self-service environment where your staff can easily order the products and services that they need while maintaining full control over who buys what.
Requisitions are routed for online approval based on your business rules (workflow) before anything is ordered. Approvers are notified by email and can approve or reject Requisitions right from the body of the email notification itself, or they can log in to SpendMap on their PCs, tablets or phones to complete the approval process.
If you’re using paper, Excel or email for your approval process, this efficient online system will significantly reduce costs and accelerate the requisitioning process by days.
And if you’re currently waiting for your suppliers’ invoices to show up before the approval process begins, SpendMap can help you make the shift to pre-purchase approval to control spending at the source and gain visibility into your spending much earlier in the procurement process.
Easy-to-use Shopping Cart (store front) simplifies Requisition creation with little or no training for casual/occasional users.
Staff can select pre-approved items from your internal Item Catalogs or they can PunchOut to leading supplier websites like Staples and Amazon to pick their items.
Requisitions update budgets immediately, before orders are placed with suppliers, rather than weeks later when the invoice shows up.
Instantly route new orders to the right managers for online approval based on business rules in the system (automatic workflow).
In far too many organizations, the invoice approval process and reconciliation within the Accounts Payable department is the most laborious, time-consuming and error-prone step of the procurement cycle.
SpendMap complements your current Accounting or ERP system by replacing a cumbersome, paper-based invoice approval process with an efficient online system.
You can quickly and easily approve your suppliers’ invoices for payment, both Purchase Order related invoices as well as non-PO invoices. Once approved, invoices can be exported to your Accounts Payable system using the built-in A/P Interface.
With SpendMap’s invoice approval module, you will immediately increase control over payments, reduce data entry and document management costs and accelerate the invoice approval process by days.
Two and three-way invoice matching for easy approval of PO-related invoices.
Support for non-PO invoices (e.g. rent, utilities, etc.).
Export approved invoices to your Accounts Payable system using built-in AP Interface.
Add freight and other charges at invoice approval stage, without having to modify the PO.
Route invoice discrepancies for additional approvals, if necessary.
