Track the approval status of every invoice

One of the biggest hurdles that every accounts payable department must overcome is the approval stage. Large enterprises often have to process an extraordinarily high number of invoices, making it near-impossible for approvers to examine each one in time. Complicated approval matrices and paper invoices further delay the process. SEMINE’s workflow feature eliminates this problem entirely.

What are the benefits?

Cut down on approval workflow cycle times

After an invoice is fully processed, SEMINE instantly sends the right information to the right people, according to compliance requirements, business rules and policies. In the case of a deviation, all relevant approvers are sent a complete package of information to review.

FAQs

How can SEMINE workflows be set up and are there any restrictions or limitations to the configuration process?

SEMINE's workflow engine provides a wide range of options to set up workflows. Customers can easily configure workflows based on various factors such as buyer, supplier, GL account, departments, projects, and amounts, among others, using over 100 different triggers. It is possible to create different setups for each entity in the organization or have a setup at the organizational level that is inherited down to the different entities. The workflow engine is designed to be user-friendly and requires no coding experience to navigate.

Can workflows be defined using a hierarchical structure in SEMINE?

You can either create a hierarchy or import an existing one into SEMINE to define a workflow setup based on it. The workflow can be configured based on the buyer reference on the invoice or a specific dimension such as department, project, or activity. The hierarchy ensures that invoices are routed to the correct employees for approval. You can also specify whether invoices should be approved by one, two, or more people, and set approval limits to ensure that invoices above a certain amount are approved by higher-level employees.

How does SEMINE enable setting up approval limits for different approvers?

SEMINE offers flexible approval limit features that can be applied either in a hierarchy or a traditional workflow set-up. The system allows for setting unique limits for each employee and specific approval steps. Additionally, the approval limits can be triggered based on certain combinations, such as a specific amount and project, department, or account. This enables our customers to establish tailored approval processes that fit their specific business needs.

How can I modify a workflow configuration in SEMINE?

SEMINE has various roles that determine the level of access a user has. The workflow set-up is accessible through the settings page and can be granted to any user based on their role. The SEMINE administrator can control and specify which users in the organization can access the workflow set-up.
