Features of our Freight Audit & Payment Solution

Pre Audit

By utilizing the latest technology, nVision Global excels in providing the most accurate, hassle free audit in the industry. Through our proprietary technology, our programmatic rate audits, at the shipment level provide our customers average annual savings of 10-15% of their annual transportation spend, ensuring the most prompt, accurate and complete audit of their negotiated pricing contracts, rates, accessorials and taxes. This whole process is possible by our expanded data capture allowing us to provide our customers with immediate, enhanced, actionable business intelligence second to none in our industry.

Custom Business Logic

nVision Global understands the importance of providing customers specific edits, validations and business rules that govern the processing of their transportation invoices. As such, our staff will review and incorporate your business rules into our automated rules engine.

Custom Cost Allocation

Critical to a single-source solution is the ability to provide accurate and efficient cost allocation. One of the primary strengths of our system is the ability to provide automated, accurate and efficient cost allocations. While the process to apply cost allocations is customer driven, our system excels at analyzing the ambiguity presented on invoices, which then integrates that information with client-provided reference data to provide automated, accurate and efficient cost allocations.

Additionally, our system is adept at:

  • Generating split allocations across multiple accounts based on a number of variables including weight, pieces and SKU number among others
  • Providing custom file feeds to customer specific accounting systems

One of the many reasons customers select nVision Global is our ability to automate cost allocations and produce dramatic productivity gains, as well as improved cost allocation results compared to existing methods.

Match Pay

One of the most important aspects of a freight audit payment system is the degree to which it can integrate valid data into your larger information environment. Customer system interfaces are a routine request to share shipping records for match-pay, cost allocation updates for GL coding, invoice information for exception management and payment information for funding requests. nVision Global currently interfaces with all major ERP and AP systems including JD Edwards, PeopleSoft, Oracle, SAP, as well as proprietary customer system formats to ensure the match is performed accurately, effectively and all in an automated environment.

Exception Management

nVision Global has designed our online exception management tools for the benefit of both our Customers and their Transportation Providers that provide a user-friendly, interactive process to address invoices that require more information and/or approval prior to payment. Any invoice that does not meet their specific business rules will be placed through an extensive three-step audit by our staff. This audit process includes a number of tools within our application to prompt nVision Global to determine the correct application of the customers’ business rules and requirements. At the conclusion of this audit invoices that still require input from either the customer or their Logistics Service Provider for processing will be posted to our web-based exception management resolution site, called Resolution™.

In regions of the world where invoices cannot be short paid, nVision Global has introduced a Collaboration tool. The dictionary defines the word Collaboration as the act of “working jointly with others in an intellectual endeavor.” This phrasing serves as an excellent introduction to describe nVision Global’s latest technology development: The Collaboration Site.

Disputes are a natural component of the invoice lifecycle: transportation providers issue invoices for their services, customers or third-party audit firms then review the details of the invoices based on existing contracts, and inevitably discrepancies are discovered in this process. Collaboration works by bringing trading partners together in a streamlined process to review invoice disputes, communicate on invoice-related issues, and issue any appropriate credit notes as needed for compliance purposes. Each party in the invoicing lifecycle is provided with an interactive and vital role in the Collaboration process: Customers and their respective transportation providers are provided direct online access to work with nVision Global staff to resolve any invoicing disputes in a timely manner. This system provides transparency and visibility to all parties, and ensures that payments are being issued to transportation providers as expeditiously as possible. Managing invoice disputes no longer requires endless phone calls and e-mail exchanges or unnecessary delays in invoice processing and payment.
