Easyinvoice @ Pearl is Pearl's standard template for inbound invoice processing. Processing starts with the invoices being received by customers in many different formats (for example EDI, EHF, scanned), and are then transformed in to iDocs to fit into SAP. All iDocs are then sent to the Monitor. The monitor is a superstructure of a table that retrieves all relevant information needed to start the workflow. How the monitor should be used must be decided by the customer. Some want to use it only for settlement management, while others want to use it to start the workflow manually to gain control. All invoices are divided into two main categories: Material invoices (MM) and finance invoices (FI). MM invoices are all invoices that can be matched against a purchase order, while FI invoices are all invoices that cannot be matched against a purchase order. The different invoices will then have different flows based on their attributes. Common for both of the categories is that it is sent from the monitor and in to My Inbox. The invoice will be put in the correct task type based on how the customer wants it. Invoices need to follow a certain process based on the laws of accounting before it can be posted. When the invoice has been through all steps it will end up to a final person which posts the invoice, which is the final step of the process.
