Invoice Portal

Contact Kofax support to enable this integration.

Invoice Portal is a single connection point to send and receive electronic invoices. It automatically converts invoices to the format required by buyers, transfers them to the correct receiver in the correct way and eliminates manual work and errors. Invoice Portal simplifies invoice processing by connecting you to hundreds of thousands of companies that are already connected and exchanging e-invoices.

ReadSoft Online accepts invoices from Invoice Portal via Email input services. Invoice Portal can be a beneficial input method because it accepts more XML invoice formats than ReadSoft Online. By default, communication between ReadSoft Online and Invoice Portal is one way: Invoice Portal sends invoices to ReadSoft Online, and ReadSoft Online processes them without communicating the results back to Invoice Portal. However, you can enable notifications in the Invoice Portal service in ReadSoft Online to send invoice status information back to Invoice Portal. This is helpful because it provides feedback to suppliers that have submitted invoices to Invoice Portal. Two-way communication between ReadSoft Online and Invoice Portal is not required and not enabled by default.

This integration is enabled via the Invoice Portal service. Administrators need these privileges to configure and utilize the Invoice Portal service:

  • Manage Invoice Portal settings - Grants permission to edit Invoice Portal service settings.

  • Access Invoice Portal - Lets admin users on the customer level open Invoice Portal from a link that appears on the landing page in Admin Center.
