Tackle Other AP Tasks in the App, like Creating e-POs
Some invoice approval apps provide additional functionality beyond approving invoices. They also let authorized users create and send electronic purchase orders to suppliers.
Requesting what one needs on the spot (say, when a maintenance tech is doing a repair) is far easier than scribbling down notes or trying to remember what was needed later on in the day. If the invoice approval app lets the employee attach photos to add clarity and detail to the e-PO, even better.
With NexusOnTheGo, authorized users can create e-POs from scratch, from a template, or from a previous order.
Some invoice approval apps, like Nexus OnTheGo, let users create electronic purchase orders on the fly and send them directly to suppliers. No need to be in front of a computer.
Create Lists with Your App
Invoice approval apps sometimes also let Property Managers, Leasing Specialists, and others create custom item lists with favorites or frequently ordered items. So, the app might include a list for a Two-Bedroom Unit Turn and another list for VIP Welcome Kit, including quantity and unit prices for each item.
With a few clicks, the employee can create e-POs from these lists, and get the ball rolling on their needed items ASAP. They can also quickly re-order the same items any time without re-entering everything again.
With the Nexus OnTheGo app, you can even generate separate e-POs for each distinct vendor from one central list.
Invoice Approval App: Productivity in the Bag (And in Your Pocket)
It’s true that what you can do in an invoice approval app is typically the same as what you can do in the desktop version of the AP automation software. But the app gives you and your employees more options and flexibility for keeping invoices on track and suppliers satisfied. And, since you can count on always having some employees “on-the-road”, “in-the-field” or “working-from-elsewhere”, options are a great thing to have.
