Simply put, the business rules engine is the air traffic control for your expense report and invoice workflows. We build into our powerful business rules engine all of your business rules and approval routing processes. It enforces expense policies and routes expense reports and invoices for approval according to the way your business works. This is the opposite of some vendors that ask you to change your behavior to fit the way their software works.
We give your business the flexibility to create virtually any kind of business rule; you are not dependent on a fixed set of pre-built rule types. For example, you might have a compliance rule that prohibits future dated transactions. Then you decide to modify this rule to allow for certain expenses that have future dates, but not other types of expenses. You might want to change the rule to say that this expense exception is only permitted in your North American offices or for individuals with certain titles. The rule options are limitless and flexible so they can be changed as your organization’s business rules change. Regardless of how your business policies evolve, the business rules engine evolves with you.
Leveraging our robust business rules engine, we offer the Emburse Enterprise Autobot within the Expense routing function. The Autobot streamlines your expense reporting process by automating the manual verification and approval steps in the expense process. This innovative technology empowers your AP Team to focus on more strategic initiatives instead of manual and repetitive tasks.
In the past there was the program and the data; now there is the application, the business rules and the data. The separation of business rules allows your business analyst to make changes to the application logic without having to turn to the developers for help. It enables solutions to change dynamically, without the delays and frustrations of waiting for software release cycles. This is the heart of modern AP automation.
We often hear from companies, “Our approval process is very complex – there’s no way you can automate it.”
We love to hear that challenge because it means one thing: the ROI and time savings will be dramatic.
