Dynamic PO Building

The Kefron AP PO Creation module is an interactive add-on that allows efficient order creation. It can be used to raise Purchase Orders and build the document dynamically on the Kefron AP system screen while entering the data.

Automated Matching

The Kefron AP System can automate the matching of Purchase Orders & GRNs to Supplier Invoices. A full 2 or 3 way matching service allows faster more concise reconciliation of your AP records.

Corresponding GRN

POs can be easily converted into a separate GRN with the click of a button to receive the goods that have been delivered. In addition to saving time on manual data entry, the PO and GRN are then automatically matched against the invoice

Converting PO

The Kefron AP PO flipping functionality enables suppliers to convert a PO into an invoice with one click. Each line level of the purchase order is electronically captured, and the information is then utilised to produce an invoice. Kefron matches the PO data to the invoice in real time and sends the transaction to your ERP for payment.

AP Dashboards


What is PO invoice in accounts payable?

A PO Invoice is a bill sent by a supplier that matches a specific Purchase Order issued by the buyer. It details the goods or services provided, quantities, prices, and total amount due, and is used in accounts payable to verify and process payment for received orders.

What is PO Matching?

PO Matching, or Purchase Order Matching, is the process of comparing the details of a purchase order (PO) against the corresponding invoice and goods receipt note (GRN) to ensure accuracy before processing a payment. In AP Automation, this process is streamlined through digital systems, enhancing efficiency and reducing manual errors.

What is 2 way PO matching?

2-Way PO Matching involves comparing the purchase order (PO) against the supplier’s invoice. It verifies that the quantities, prices, and items on the invoice match those on the PO.

What is 3 way PO matching?

3-Way PO Matching adds another layer by comparing the PO, the invoice, and the goods receipt note (GRN) or delivery note. It ensures that what was ordered, billed, and received are all in agreement.

What types of documents are involved in the PO Matching process?

The primary documents involved are the Purchase Order (PO), the Invoice from the supplier, and the Goods Receipt Note (GRN) or service receipt confirming delivery of goods or completion of services.

Is it possible to integrate PO Matching with my existing ERP system?

Most AP Automation solutions are designed to integrate seamlessly with a wide range of ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems, allowing for real-time data exchange and streamlined workflows.
