Reverse & Reconcile: The Frustrations of EDI and Post-ERP Entry Adjustments


Have you ever experienced that sinking feeling when you realize an entry mistakenly made its way into your ERP via EDI, and you're now tasked with the daunting process of reversing it? The frustration of post-ERP entry adjustments is a shared sentiment among finance teams dealing with manual data reconciliation and error rectification.

The Pain of Post-ERP Entry Reversals

In the realm of Accounts Payable, erroneous entries post-EDI integration are a thorn in the side of efficient financial operations. The time-consuming and error-prone process of reversing entries, often due to incorrect data input or overlooked details, can disrupt workflows and erode operational efficiency.

The ERP EDI Conundrum

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) integration, while a pivotal tool in streamlining data exchange, presents its own set of challenges. Mistakes made during the data transmission process or errors in interpreting the received data often result in inaccurate entries slipping through to your ERP system.

Nimbello's AP Automation: The EDI Solution

Enter Nimbello's AP Automation software, designed to tackle these very challenges plaguing traditional AP processes. Here’s how it can alleviate the pains of post-ERP entry adjustments:

Real-time Validation and Error Mitigation

Nimbello's AP Automation acts as a vigilant gatekeeper, employing real-time data validation protocols. Before any erroneous data can find its way into your ERP, the system scrutinizes and cross-references information, minimizing the chances of flawed entries from EDI sources.

Automated Error Detection and Alert Systems

The software’s advanced algorithms detect anomalies in incoming data streams. Should any discrepancies arise, automated alerts promptly notify your team, preventing faulty entries from being processed into the ERP system. Many of the CFOs we speak with in the manufacturing, healthcare, and higher education space note prior to an automated system their teams spent time finding an EDI solution to eliminate manual entry. However, they realize the files are only as good as the data and if there is dirty data in the file it ends up in their ERP and then causes their teams to spend even more time backing out data and re-doing the entries.


Streamlined Reversal and Rectification Workflows

In the event that an erroneous entry does slip through, Nimbello offers streamlined reversal workflows. The software allows for efficient and structured processes for identifying, reversing, and rectifying entries, reducing the time and effort spent on manual interventions.
