Proposal run

Proposal run is executed to check if there is any error. If there is any error then proposal log is analyzed to find out the root cause of the issue. Delete the proposal run→ fix the issue→ execute the proposal run again→ check of error. In case of error, analyze the proposal log, delete proposal run, fix error and again execute the proposal run.  

 

 Payment run

Once proposal run is free from any error, payment run is executed.

Payment document gets posted with posting date mentioned in parameter. Status of vendor invoices which are paid changes from open to cleared.

A mail is triggered to vendor’s mail id which has soft copy of payment advice attached.

Output payment medium file is generated and stored in a specific location on company’s server. This file is picked up by automated batch job program and sent to bank’s server for vendor payment. Once bank receives the payment file, bank pays to vendor as per data in payment file.
