  • Patent number: 8498935
    Abstract: A system and method for automated adjustment processing using pre-configured sets of business rules is provided. The seller pre-configures a set of business rules for use in processing an adjustment for a specific buyer. The set of business rules may be variable for each buyer and/or globally set. When a payment is received from a seller and an adjustment is required, an adjustment management application retrieves the buyer's set of business rules from the seller. The set of business rules are then applied to attempt to match the received payment to one of the buyer's outstanding invoices. If the match is successful, the buyer's payment is processed.

  • Publication number: 20050075979
    Abstract: A system and method for seller-assisted automated payment and adjustment processing is provided. A seller receives a payment from a buyer that does not match the seller's invoice and consequently requires an adjustment. An adjustment document creator receives the payment data from the buyer and retrieves buyer-specific order data from said seller to construct an adjustment document. A variety of adjustment documents may be created depending upon the actual adjustment required. The adjustment document may then be automatically routed to a set of one or more buyer-specific human reviewers for approval of the adjustment. The automated payment and adjustment processing system is preferably integrated with the seller's financial institution.

  • Publication number: 20050075960
    Abstract: A system and method for automated incoming payment and invoice reconciliation is provided. A buyer of goods sends a remittance to the seller's financial institution. The buyer's remittances is processed to generate payment data which is supplied to a payment matching application. The payment matching application retrieves buyer information from said payment data and queries the seller for all outstanding invoices of said buyer. The payment matching application then attempts to match the received payment to one or more of the buyer's outstanding invoices. If a match is found, the payment is processed and the seller's financial institution and accounting system are automatically updated. If no match is found, the payment is flagged for further processing.
