Procter & Gamble is enabling Integrated PO Validation from Tungsten Network for all integrated suppliers.
What is PO Validation?
PO Validation is a data matching process to ensure adherence to buyer rules. It is designed to improve the invoice matching process between POs and invoices. Tungsten will validate invoices against POs to ensure:
- The company on an invoice matches the company related to the PO
- The PO number quoted is correct
- That line item numbers match the PO
- That only one PO number is quoted per invoice
PO Validations are automatically applied. If your invoice fails because of PO validation you will be notified with the reason and how to correct it.
What does this mean?
If you’d like to receive all your P&G purchase orders directly into your sales order entry process contact Tungsten, and they’ll discuss set-up and mapping requirements for you to receive electronic POs from us.
The PO Service automatically connects to your ERP and transfers POs using your preferred data transfer mechanism and file format. Tungsten’s standard file formats include CXML, Tungsten XML, ANSI and EDIFACT.1
Why utilize Integrated PO Delivery?
When you receive purchase orders in multiple formats; phone, email, faxes, and even mail, you typically then have to manually enter those POs into your systems with varying and often missing information. Manual entry of the data can also lead to mistakes. Documents and updates getting lost and orders going unfulfilled. Manual PO processing wastes time, money and ultimately can delay your invoice being paid.
If you integrate for PO Delivery, you’ll receive electronic POs from P&G directly into your ERP in a standardized format, resulting in a more streamlined sales order entry and invoicing process.
You can also take advantage of the network effect and receive electronic POs from any of your other customers on Tungsten Network who’ve enabled PO Delivery too. Let Tungsten know your top 10 and they’ll connect you.
How much will it cost me?
Integrated PO Delivery consists of a one-off set-up fee and an annual fee. The annual fee is based on the number of purchase orders you anticipate receiving in a year (this can cover multiple buyers), see tiers below2.
