Pivot Payables | Maximizing Value for Commercial Cards, Client Billing and ERP Integration
CFO Tech Outlook
December 2023

Automating financial operations tasks is the central theme across all Pivot applications. Here are the business processes supported by Pivot Payables applications:

  • Arguably the largest AP challenge faced by most companies today is credit card accounting and reconciliation – Pivot automates the process.
  • A correspondingly large business challenge on the AR side is companies that bill back expenses or require project cost tracking with images – Pivot assembles project expense statements in seconds including images.
  • Rounding out requirements related to AP is integrating Concur Expense and Concur Invoice with the target ERP – To date, PivotNexus has successfully integrated with nearly 100 ERP systems, including Microsoft Dynamics 365 products, Oracle NetSuite, as well as QuickBooks.

In all cases, it’s about navigating complex manual procedures to collect, reconcile, synchronize, and report accounting details accurately in a constantly deadline-driven environment.

CIO Review
June 2023

Efficient finance management is essential. Business leaders must track their expenses to understand their profitability picture – an integral part of good business decision making. While tracking and reporting expenses may seem easy, there are often complex manual procedures involved to complete the financial operations requirements to account  properly for the expense data collected. Automating these inefficient processes can result in businesses retaining and recovering significant bottom line profits. The key to resolving these inefficiencies is understanding financial operations workflow and data sharing, and that’s where Pivot Payables can help — with PivotEQ.

Pivot Payables | Announces PivotEQ
Maximizing Commercial Card Program Value for SAP Concur Customers
Automated ‘Statement-to-Expense Report’ Reconciliation & Smart Accounting

 

Pivot Payables, Inc. announces PivotEQ, its newest product, helping financial executives maximize the value of their commercial card programs in conjunction with SAP Concur expense reporting.

PivotEQ utilizes credit card statements and SAP Concur expense reports to manage the credit card reconciliation and accounting preparation processes.

The credit card statement is imported into PivotEQ and used to match transactions to expense reports. Pivot automatically imports Concur expense reports throughout the month once the final approval is made in SAP Concur. Once imported, the comparison begins – and continues automatically. Transactions remain in the Unmatched group until found on an expense report. Cardholders with Unmatched transactions receive reminder emails.

When it’s time to create the accounting, PivotEQ uses Smart Accounting to accurately predict the segments in the GL string based on the previous data in the expense reports. For example, Smart Accounting calculates the Natural Account based on past assignments for Natural Accounts to merchants. It gains insight with every expense assignment – so the more expense reports – the better PivotEQ can accurately determine the correct Natural Account for a given merchant.

All of this makes PivotEQ the go-to credit card reconciliation solution for businesses – a mere beginning of how Pivot Payables will help get more from card programs.

Pivot Payables | Top Accounting Solution Providers
CFO Tech Outlook
March 2022

The digital transformation of accounting processes has been driven to a critical point. Many business leaders say the COVID-19 pandemic caused their organizations to embrace digitalization sooner than planned. The need to work from home put enormous pressure on organizations to reinvent operations, or risk serious bottom line impact. Even though they realized digitalization of the accounting process was an absolute necessity, achieving success is not easy. Why? It’s complicated.

Typically, accounting functions involve individuals across the organization – e.g., ordering supplies, making sales calls, filing expense reports, approving purchases. The accounting department also has its own cross-functional roles – e.g., accounts receivables (AR), accounts payables (AP), payroll, and financial reporting. These “front-end” and “back-end” accounting processes are interwoven and dependent upon each other to collect, record, validate, and maintain business transaction data in a systematic way. Streamlining and automating these touchpoints is a significant task that considers technology, data, processes, and organizational change to achieve its objectives.

Cardno Project Manager Tracie Williams Presents
Business Case for PivotPrime at Fusion 2016
March  2016

Tracie Williams, Finance Systems Project Manager for Cardno highlights the challenges related to invoicing clients for billable expenses and talks about the business case to automate the process with PivotPrime from Pivot Payables. The top challenges were directly associated with the company’s existing manual processes. Creating accurate and timely billing statements required a large number of people and the manual methods increased the potential for missed expenses or errors. Cash flow was impacted because of the lengthy time between expense approval and reimbursement – and missed expenses compromised project profitability. Tracie is leading the implementation of PivotPrime at Cardno and estimates that automating the client billing process will save 500 hours per month and eliminate missing expenses entirely.

Cardno is an ASX-listed professional infrastructure and environmental services company, with expertise in the development and improvement of physical and social infrastructure for communities around the world.    www.cardno.com

Does PivotEQ work?

The Finance Manager at Vantage Partners, a global consulting company, says “PivotEQ has had a tremendous impact!”. The statement period prior to PivotEQ, the company reported spending about one hour per cardholder and still had 540 unmatched transactions that each needed accrual entries at period end. At the end of their first month using PivotEQ, they had only 20 outstanding transactions; then 10, then 2, and by the fourth month, they had one outstanding transaction! All done automatically by PivotEQ.
