ACCOUNTS PAYABLE INITIATIVE TO INCREASE INVOICE AUTOMATION
UC Berkeley, as part of a UC system-wide contract, has partnered with the Transcepta Electronic Procure-to-Pay Network to provide our suppliers with enhanced invoice submission capability. Transcepta has been working with many of our suppliers to convert invoices into an electronic format that can be sent directly to Bear Buy. Suppliers are offered multiple channels to submit their invoices to Transcepta, including e-mail, web upload and EDI. Transcepta then sends the invoice data to Bear Buy, where regular processing is completed. Benefits of directing invoices through a single standard electronic process include:
Increased visibility to invoice images and payment status in BearBuy
Reduced potential for lost invoices
Reduced time spent and delays in multiple hand-offs of paper invoices
Improved opportunity to take advantage of available early payment discounts
UC Berkeley is now live on the Transcepta Electronic Procure-to-Pay Network for supplier electronic invoice transmission, but we continue to enroll new suppliers as they are identified.
Invoices that are submitted via Transcepta have a Voucher Source of Invoice Import as highlighted in the visual below. To view a digital image of these invoices, click on the Invoice link also highlighted below.
