What is coming to Accounts Payable Processes as part of the S2P Transformation?
The Kyndryl S2P team works to build new services for Accounts Payable, independent from IBM, delivered by Kyndryls to Kyndryls.
Our mission is to design an Accounts Payable Process that is built for the future:
- Industry Standard
Invoice Processing Strategy
Our strategy is not only to allow, but to encourage electronic invoicing!
- Where SAP Business Network (formerly called Ariba Network) is compliant for invoice issuance, we'd expect suppliers to use it for both their and Kyndryl's benefits. It offers immediate, automated invoice validation and processing, advanced status and remittance information. Suppliers have the opportunity to integrate their billing systems with the Network through EDI connection, CSV upload. If POs were created via Contractor Portal the electronic invoice process must go via Contractor Portal as well.
- Where SAP Business Network is not compliant for invoicing, but other electronic invoice formats are legally accepted, Accounts Payable is going to utilize Opentext Optical Character Recognition Software (OCR) to automate reception, validation and compliant archiving. We offer OCR PDF invoicing received through e-mail.
For OCR PDF invoicing please find the information you require here: Download ->
- Kyndryl operates in a few countries, where only paper invoices are acknowledged. For those countries, Accounts Payable offers centralized invoice reception and scanning locations in each time zones. Our operations team then funnels the scanned invoices into Opentext OCR.
- Check out the comprehensive table below that contains all the Kyndryl Legal Entity details so that you can issue your invoices correctly and send them to the right place for scanning and processing.
