Stop #5: Northwest RUG

Elire team members presented on two groundbreaking industry topics – AP Automation with Canon Imaging Solutions and PeopleSoft 9.2 Lease Administration at the PeopleSoft Northwest RUG in Redmond, WA. Sessions and abstracts are below. 

  • Enhance your Financial Ops & Meet the New IASB/FASB Requirements with PeopleSoft 9.2 Lease Administration
    • Formerly known as Real Estate Management, PeopleSoft’s 9.2 Lease Administration module is a re-vamped, fully-integrated leasing solution. It can help firms comply with the new IASB/FASB lease accounting guidelines, providing automation of Billing and AP for leasing, and can straight line accounting needs. Elire Expert, John Wallace, provided an overview of the Lease Administration Module and discussed the benefits, system changes, implementation tips and tricks, and an overall understanding of how this module can change an organization’s financial system dynamic.
  • Reinventing AP Automation with Open Imaging Integration in PeopleSoft
    • Elire Strategic Advisory Services Expert, Patrick Gahagan, presented a recent case study around the integration of Canon’s Accounts Payable Automation Solution to PeopleSoft 9.2, leveraging the new Open Imaging Integration (OII). Upon implementation, the Canon solution will increase productivity, speed, visibility, and control delivered to our current client. This client previously manually imaged & keyed over 60,000 invoices per year, and through this implementation will be able to transform their fragmented, manual, paper-intensive process.

    • Elire’s experts provided a brief overview of the solution, and took a deep dive into the Strategic Advisory Services methodology used to define requirements for the end-to-end invoice management process, including invoice intake, coding, workflow approval, reporting and dashboards. 

Look out for Elire at Southwest Regional Users Group (SWHEUG) July 11th-12th in Costa Mesa, CA and at Quest RECONNECT 2017 in Rosemount, IL, July 18th-20th!
