Architecting an Effective Enterprise Taxonomy is the Key to Cloud Expense Management

Cloud Services Can Provide Much Greater Insights for Expense Management

Telecom carriers offer little ability to customize the data structure of their telecom invoices. For the most part, invoice reports are architected from the carrier’s perspective (i.e., with emphasis on what needs to be paid). This structure is primarily due to regulatory and compliance standards around USOC (Universal Service Ordering Code), tariffs, rates, service types and products and automated Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). As a result, organizations must create workarounds that programmatically correlate the only customer-defined field in the invoice (i.e., the subaccount) with the appropriate cost center owner. They must also augment other information in the invoice feed to ensure the expenses are properly allocated in accordance to the current cost center assignments.

How the Most Successful Companies Use Automated Invoice Processing

By Calero-MDSL on May 31, 2018

The demand for telecom expense management (TEM) systems to leverage automation is increasing. Matching contracts with a high volume of invoices take financial teams too much time to execute and high error rates are inevitable.
