The Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is often the primary repository that holds key vendor master data, particularly Remittance Information. Due to the complex technical architecture between Coupa and ERP, remittance information is a key element of the vendor information that may not be included on the ERP-to-Coupa interface.
Accenture’s panel app solution allows users to view in Coupa, real-time remittance information stored in the ERP vendor record. This is especially useful in cases where there are multiple vendor records with similar names but different remittance information. Our solution encompasses an ERP program to pass the vendor data to a middleware API that is accessed by the Coupa Panel App on-demand.
End user can validate that the correct supplier record is chosen when raising a purchase request.
Accounts Payable (AP) user can validate that the correct supplier record is chosen with backing.
Remittance information when submitting an invoice.
Prevents need to build out Coupa integration and downstream design for remittance object.
