Supervisory approval - in addition to 4-eyes principle - for your supplier invoices

When you setup Next® Invoices, you get to choose from a number of approval principles. One of the most popular principles is the 4-eyes principle, when Next® makes sure that two relevant individuals with the required authorization get to OK the invoice before it's released for payment (and maybe also posting) to the finance application.


Sometimes 4 eyes are simply not enough. Either for a period of time - or permanently - you may wish add a supervisory processing or approval before releasing the invoices for further processing. 

For the relevant group of invoices all you need to do is enable Approved by supervisor - and select who is in the supervisor group. 

As simple as that. Bullet proof and fully documented. No invoice gets release, before the supervisor has OK'ed the release. 

Future enhancements

In a soon to come release, we will introduce Automatic action policies, that will allow the supervisor to let Next® OK selected invoices automatically. Still bullet proof and fully documented.
