Smart-suggestions when coding invoices

Smart and timesaving new feature for everyone doing coding of purchase invoices in Next®.

When you process purchase invoices, you have to code them. You specify the account number, the posting text, additional dimension codes and maybe even a VAT code. 

Many invoices are alike, and some even repetitive. 

With Next® Smart-suggestions it become way easier and more efficient to handle this task.

Next® remembers how you previously coded an invoice from this specific vendor. And show the most recent variants as suggestions. If you agree that one of them is right for you - just click it. This saves time, and reduces errors.


One click to choose the right suggestion - or click the green plus to go manual.

Everything filled in and ready to add. Doesn't get much easier than that.

Smart-suggestions are a real time saver for most, but if you dislike the suggestions all together - simply un-click Show suggestions.

Future enhancements

The Smart-suggestions in invoice coding will be enhanced over time. In a later release you will be able to disable suggestions only for selected vendors. And to pin specifically brilliant suggestions, so that you don't loose them just because you use other variants. 

In a later release of Next® invoices you will be able to define predefined coding templates. These templates can contain multiple accounting entries and allow you to do standard distribution of costs and investments. The coding templates will either be applied automatically based on rules, or presented here as suggestions. 

Smart-suggestions will also soon come to other parts of Next®, starting with Next® Process for Expenses. And also become available in Next® Go.

For the techies

The suggestions you see are based on the most recent 20 invoices. The 5 newest unique accounting entries are presented.

Commercial terms and conditions

This new optional feature is available for a fee to users with an active service plan. Any consultancy assistance will be invoiced separately.


Despite our best efforts, we may be forced to change both content and expected delivery of future product updates without notice.
