invoiceLINE

Release notes version 2.0 service pack 11

Feature highlights

Positionserkennung

More reasons for position recognition

This service pack entails multiple new functions and improvements of the position recognition. For example, the recognition of multi-row table headers and the adjustment to the documents of partners now ensure even better workflow automation.

Korrespondenzfunktion

Easier communication with the new correspondence function

The new correspondence function enables fast and simple communication with suppliers or team members directly in SAP. This function will also be continuously improved and developed in future service packs.

dunningLINE Integration

Double automation with the dunningLINE integration

In addition to your invoice receipt, also map the dunning process in your SAP system. This is now even easier thanks to the link of dunningLINE to your existing scanning and archiving infrastructure.

New functions

Improvements in position recognition

Z

Recognition of multi-row table headers

Whereas previously only one header could be recognised, an unlimited number of headers can now be recognised for each table. A condition for this is that at least two different hints at interpretation concepts can be found in one row.

Z

Definition of parameters and tolerances

Further, it is now possible to define certain parameters and tolerances per business partner within the position recognition matrix. This allows for the recognition to be finely adjusted to the documents of partners and for its further improvement. Currently, parameters for the influencing of the column calculation and running-text identification exist. This function will be expanded with additional options in future updates.

Z

Business partner whitelist

Position recognition can now be activated for individual business partners. If the whitelist has been activated, position recognition is applied only to partners contained on it. The previous recognition logic will be applied to all others. Thus, it is possible to roll out the new recognition step-by-step. The whitelist is independent of the system and can be edited for each system without transport requests.

Z

Additional improvements

  • Columns can now be allocated to several recognition concepts
  • Data contained in a column is allocated to its applicable column heading
  • Improved Regex generator
  • Improved allocation of order positions to the recognised positions in the table

Expansion of the recognition logic of the talkENGINE 

Z

Multi-line Regex entries

Normally, it is assumed that lexicon entries and Regex patterns only appear in one line in the talkENGINE. With the addition of multi-line Regexes, it is now possible to find terms that are split across two lines. This enables, for example, the capturing of column headings exceeding one line.

Implementation of the foundation for the correspondence function

Z

Fast and simple communication with suppliers or team members directly in SAP

Within the correspondence function, e-mails can be captured within a process. The processing of e-mails can be supported by customer-specific text templates and an attachment option. Replies are automatically allocated to the respective process. All e-mails are archived in .EML format and thus remain accessible at all times. The integration of a separate e-mail address in the SCOT in SAP, via which communication can be controlled, is required for this. 

dunningLINE Integration

Z

Implementation of the technical foundation

The dunningLINE can be linked to an existing scanning and archiving infrastructure via SAP® ArchiveLink. Through free-form recognition and the connected mapping of all pertinent information of a dunning notice, the dunningLINE records the values contained in dunning notices, which previously had to be done manually. Moreover, dunning notices and the original invoices are connected in the invoiceLINE, which fosters an homogenous and interactive interplay between dunningLINE and invoiceLINE.

Please note: The dunningLINE offers a solution for the automated processing of inbound dunning notices in the SAP® environment and should be considered an independent extension of the invoiceLINE that must be licenced separately.
