The balancing of supplier invoice against the agreed buying discounts is an essential part of the commercial task.

The invoice checking function enables the user to see all buying discounts granted by the supplier (at the level supplier/discount group/product) and can balance these in an automated way with the invoices received.

By linking to the actually received goods a check of the received volumes is made.

Using invoice data the net-net BP can be calculated and checked and if applicable a correction of volumes and price differences can be made.

Differences found will be passed on to the accounting department for further processing. Also automated credit or debit situations are part of invoice checking, with a few mouse clicks a formalised letter is sent to the claims department.

For the retailer this is a very powerful and time reducing tool that also documents occurring differences audit-proof.
This function is available in DEWAS III, MSS and sigma//MC.
