Ohio Valley OAUG Presentation Abstracts October 24, 2014 Indianapolis, IN Oracle eBusiness Track Title Presenter Abstract How One Order Impacts Five Corporate Stakeholders – Procurement, IT, Customer Service, Finance and Sales Neil Gorman, Canon Information & Imaging Solutions While numerous business processes can be automated using sophisticated enterprise systems to bring increased efficiency to companies across industries, the automation has not reached a key area of information: the wealth of data found in paper or electronic documents. Companies and their IT departments have traditionally limited the automation to various enterprise applications. Valuable document-related information has been neglected. This can lead to delays in many crucial business processes, and unnecessary cost increases. Our presentation will review the efficiencies and business intelligence that can be gained by a number of stakeholders in an organization – in Procurement, Customer Service, Finance, and Sales, as a result of fully automating document-intensive business processes. As a case study, we will look at an organization that needed help with improving their accounting workflows. The company was generating about 2,000 invoices every day, and used multiple enterprise applications in connection with the accounting process. The organization experienced challenges with the scalability of the existing system, error handling, and was trying to find an effective way to automatically distribute invoices based on the profile of each recipient. Invoices from different vendors can have multiple formats and unstructured data, which makes their processing manual and difficult to automate. We will show an effective way to automatically extract information, match it with corresponding documents (such as purchase order), generate a voucher within the company’s ERP system, and provide exception routing and tracking as required. You can eliminate the need to archive paper invoices –with the ability to archive the electronic image of the invoice, and then easily access it with just a click from within JDE or another database. Automating accounting processes can help save time and costs, increase accuracy, take advantage of vendor discounts, improve customer satisfaction and aid in sales efforts. Canon Information & Imaging Solutions provides solutions to automate Procure to Pay, Order to Cash among other document-intensive business processes. Leveraging Canon’s Enterprise Imaging Platform, a value-added middleware, we can design and deliver solutions that provide two fundamental capabilities: a full range of robust tools needed to capture, create and process documents; and the ability to easily integrate document technologies with enterprise applications. The single platform allows us to easily bring documents into automated, end-to-end business processes.

Title Presenter Abstract A Paperless Approach to Payment Batch Approvals Cynthia Mohr, MISO Energy We have created a process in Oracle Financials that will take a batch of Invoices and combine them into one group and copy them to a folder that Finance uses. It also takes an output report and copies it out the same directory. Lastly this process sends out email based on what approval is needed with links to the reports needed – It may be to an initial approval so Accounts Payable gets the email. Other levels would include sending the email to the Finance Managers or lastly the Directors, Executive Directors and/or VP. The approval is for payment of invoices. Previously an Accts Payable person would make copies of all the invoices, sort them by dollar amount and put the stack of invoices on the various desks for approval. The new process has eliminated paper, utilizes technology and allows the approvals and documentation to be placed in ECMS easily for Audits and general record keeping.
