Accounts Payable Automation

On Monday 29th April 2019, the University will go live with Kofax, a tool which enables the University to automate the processing of supplier invoices and facilitate online Reimbursement and Other Payments requests.

How does it work?

Reimbursements & Other Payments
  • Reimbursement and Other Payment forms will be online through Kofax
  • Forms can be accessed directly from Kofax (there will be a button on the Finance homepage) or under Forms > Accounts Payable
  • Forms will be workflowed to an Approver through Kofax replacing the signature on the old paper form
  • Compliance checks will be completed by Procurement Services prior to being authorised.
  • The status and payment date of requests can be tracked in the system.
Automating supplier invoices

Kofax workflows supplier invoices that don't have a Purchase Order (PO), or where there is a variance between the PO and the invoice.  It does not replace the University's Finance System.

  • Invoices must be sent to invoices@adelaide.edu.au
  • Kofax automatically reads and captures information from the invoice
  • Any coding or wording in the body of the email will not be captured 
  • Invoices relating to a PO will be matched in Kofax, fully matched invoices will be scheduled for payment in the Finance System  
  • Invoices with no PO, or where there is a PO variance, will be workflowed in Kofax to a Business Reviewer to be reviewed and coded
  • Once coded, it will be workflowed to a financial Approver
  • Once approved, it will be scheduled for payment in the Finance System.

Next Steps and transition plan

  • Suppliers have been contacted and instructed to email invoices directly to invoices@adelaide.edu.au - see supplier email
  • Requests for visits / demonstrations - please contact the Support Team
  • Training Resources are now available 
  • Go live onsite support schedule - see below (anyone needing hands on support during the go live week can drop in at any location).
