With Accounts Receivable, you know who is buying what and who is paying their bills on time. This section of the financial module will allow you to enter invoices into the system and create debit notes, interests invoices, and use multiple payment instruments.
Accounts Payable (AP) allows you to enter supplier invoices for purchases that you make, and then create payments for the invoices you want to pay. The system can generate payments for all invoices due, those for a particular supplier, or only for specific invoices. AP allows you to update both purchase orders in Purchase Management as well as actual job costs. Adjustments are created if the purchase price does not
match the invoiced price. With AP, you will know how much you owe and when it is due.
Epicor ECM captures and automatically processes your AP invoices from multiple inbound sources, including existing document scanners or multifunction copiers. Invoices are automatically routed for two-way and
three-way matching workflows and approvals.
