The client is a global manufacturer of physical infrastructure equipment that supports power, communications, computing, control, and security systems. They assist customers in solving business challenges related to data center, enterprise, and industrial environments Its services cater to end-customers directly and OEM's.

Having support operations in more than 120 countries, the client needed a more efficient invoicing approval system to curtail overall time-to-payment, while ensuring that accurate invoices are raised on clients as quickly as possible.

ennVee was tasked with implementing and integrating the Oracle AME (Approval Management Engine) AP Invoice approval process with the client's back-office Oracle EBS R12.

Solution Approach

ennVee provided a comprehensive solution for the invoice process, from generating custom approvals, to enabling users to develop the approved invoice through a customized workflow.

We implemented AME (Invoice Approval Process based on Job hierarchy and approval limits) to Oracle EBS Payables within the client's application architecture framework. This would generate AME capabilities to streamline the entire Invoice process and approval workflows. The integration would allow the client to utilize a single set of invoice data between both applications, and automatically generate approvals and send out notification messages to the appropriate party.
