Esker’s New Mobile Application Accelerates the P2P Cycle by Enabling Purchase Requisition and Invoice Approval On-the-Go

MADISON, Wis.--()--Esker, a worldwide leader in document process automation solutions and pioneer in cloud computing, today announced the release of Esker Anywhere, a new mobile application that gives managers the ability to review, approve, and reject purchase requisitions and supplier invoices while out of the office. The application, available 24/7 for free on Apple® or Android devices, helps businesses further speed up the review and approval cycles of invoice and requisition processing, as well as improve efficiency in the purchase-to-pay (P2P) cycle.

“Employees are becoming increasingly mobile and require anywhere accessibility to business processes and data in order to maximize productivity”

Esker Anywhere, an enhancement to Esker’s original mobile invoice approval application launched in March 2013, enables purchase requisition approval capabilities in addition to supplier invoice approvals. This new feature is a natural extension of Esker’s Purchasing automation solution, which optimizes indirect spend requests and goods or services by delivering the mobile convenience to approve such requisitions.

Esker Anywhere provides on-the-road accessibility for managers who approve invoices and purchase requisitions before payment, enabling them to quickly resolve exceptions and approvals, resulting in excellent supplier relationships and increased efficiency in the P2P cycle. Coupled with a fresh new interface design and enhanced usability, Esker Anywhere delivers a more engaging user experience.

The new application allows Esker customers to:

  • View the list of invoices and purchase requisitions awaiting approval or on hold
  • Review invoice images and original supplier quotes as they were received by accounting
  • Access invoice or purchase requisition key data (e.g., supplier name, total amount, etc.), as well as comments from requesters and previous approvers
  • Review coding and budget information before approving
  • Approve, hold or send an invoice back to the previous approver
  • Leave a comment for the next person in the workflow or the requester

“Employees are becoming increasingly mobile and require anywhere accessibility to business processes and data in order to maximize productivity,” said Jean-Michel Bérard, CEO at Esker. “Our new mobile app is a result of our ongoing commitment to bring value to companies looking for faster and more efficient ways to do daily business activities, including processing invoices and spend requests on the move. As we continue to enrich our mobile offer, Esker will soon include new business processes like sales orders and expand to Windows® operating systems.”
