Additional Accounts Payable Features
Following are brief descriptions of Fund Accounting's additional features, which are based on the appropriate profile settings and reference table setup:
Electronic Funds Transfer
Allows you to process vendor payments without printing actual AP checks. This feature enables you to generate a special file containing payment data as a part of the vendor check run for EFT vendors. You send the file to your bank which then distributes funds electronically to the vendors' banks. The system also can send e-mail notification to the vendors.
Accounts Payable Approval
Allows you to apply an approval process for your accounts payable records. By assigning an Approval record to a payable, you apply pre-defined approval rules to the record. This includes the number of levels required, personnel authorized to perform approval, and dollar amount ranges for determining the payable distribution line items that need approval. Payables are stored in batch files during the approval process.
