Intercompany Utilities includes the following sub-modules that are sold and activated individually:
The PO-OE Trade Automation sub-module facilitates cross company transactions in purchase and sales processes. Posting a Purchase Order in the purchasing company for a particular entity defined as a vendor, automatically initiates a corresponding Sales Order in the selling company database where the purchasing company is defined as a customer. Similarly, a shipment transaction in the selling company automatically generates a purchase receipt in the purchasing company. Finally, an O/E invoice issued in the selling company results in a P/O invoice issued in the purchasing company.
Intercompany G/L Distributions sub-module enables account balance allocation from an account(s) in the source company to another account in the source and/or destination companies. An example how this sub-module may be implemented is expense distribution from headquarter to branches. It enables profit markups, as well as flexible distribution methods: by number of transactions, by number of employees, by account balances and manual.
