Oracle Dispute Management Issues

By automating key accounts payable (AP) processes, companies can maximize their return on investments in Oracle ERP solutions and make the financial supply chain function more efficiently. Direct Insite’s PAYBOX® solution is a secure, enterprise-level solution that integrates seamlessly into existing Oracle ERP software to generate bottom-line business results and optimize Oracle dispute management processes.

Common Issues Faced with Oracle Dispute Management

When companies that use Oracle ERP solutions are over-reliant on unnecessary manual, paper-based invoicing and dispute management processes, it causes several common AP workflow issues. These include:

  • Data and Information Errors: Paper-based invoice management processes are prone to errors resulting from manual data entry. Plus, every time AP staff has to back track to correct inaccurate information on dispute inquiries, it leaves room for additional errors. 
  • Dispute Management Bottlenecks: Bottlenecks in the dispute management processes stem from data and information errors rooted in manual invoicing processes. This creates an unusually large number of inquiries from suppliers, further consuming resources and contributing to dramatic inefficiencies in AP processes.   
  • Compliance Failures: It’s difficult for Oracle users to manage more advanced business rules and compliance requirements without a dispute management automation solution. By automating dispute management processes, businesses can routinely set and enforce advanced rules to ensure they are meeting strict compliance obligations.
  • Increased Labor Costs: Without dispute management automation, AP staff must spend precious time on tedious tasks such as data entry and accuracy checks. By automating Oracle dispute management activities, organizations can significantly reduce time and costs associated with dispute processing.       
  • Lack of Visibility: Lack of visibility into the status of dispute resolutions and overarching organizational efficiency trends can hamper growth and progress within AP departments. Access to real-time monitoring and reporting tools can help organizations streamline AP processes and dispute management resolution.  
  • Damaged Supplier Relations: When suppliers have to submit an unnecessarily high volume of inquiries to your company on a regular basis, it damages relationships and loyalty. In addition to disincentivising suppliers from working with you, your company will also have to deal with high volumes of emails and phone inquiries regarding invoice disputes.
