This feature will allow suppliers to now submit invoices online using iSupplier Portal.


Suppliers are now able to select approved PO shipments for invoicing in iSupplier Portal. They can enter the quantity to be invoiced, freight charges, tax charges and miscellaneous charges. When submitted, the invoice will be processed by the invoice import program and then created in Accounts Payable. A new sub tab called Create Invoices has been added under the Account tab.
