    Procurement Card - Employee Purchase - Non Travel and Expense

    Procurement Card - Employee Purchase - Non Travel and Expense
    Content:

    Hi,

    I have a requirement to implement procurement card functionality for Employee purchasing items from Supplier.

    1- Is the procurement card to purchase from supplier is same process as Corporate Card for booking travel and expense for employees?

    2-  How is the life cycle of employee P Card to Fusion Payables? Does the transaction from Corporate Card goes through expense module and then Accounts Payable or Data can be directly interfaced to Accounts Payable?

    Thank You

    Binayak

      1- Is the procurement card to purchase from supplier is same process as Corporate Card for booking travel and expense for employees?  Yes.

      2-  How is the life cycle of employee P Card to Fusion Payables? Does the transaction from Corporate Card goes through expense module and then Accounts Payable or Data can be directly interfaced to Accounts Payable?  Yes the employee would expense the P Card transactions through Cloud Expenses which will then pass to AP for payment.  Cloud Expenses will be able to import the transaction from the card so the employee can expense them.

        Becky,

         

        Thank you for your response. Is it possible to create payable transaction through expense module where supplier wll be P Card Company rather than the employee?

      No that is not supported.  Only employees can be reimbursed through the expenses module.  Suppliers can only be paid from AP which currently does not support downloading and reconciliation of corporate card transactions for payment to Suppliers.

        Becky,

         

        We are in R12 Cloud version of Fusion. We are planning to use JPM Mastercard to upload procurement expenses to Fusion.

        1- Usually expense reports are used to upload Hotels,Meals and simillar purchases. How can be interface transaction to purchase items fro Best Buy or Office Depot through expense module? Will the expense module accept such kind of purchases to be reimbursed to the employee through expense module?

        2- Do we need to set up anything to onboard file from JPM to our server or we have to take help of Oracle Support to configure inbound directory for staging data file from JPM to be loaded into Fusion?

        3- Can you share the file format for Mastercard program?

          Hi Binayak,

          Have you been able to figure this out? I am looking for an answer to the above two points that you mentioned. Did you get a chance to talk to Oracle Support and get this clarified? Can you post  the response here

          Appreciate your help

          Thanks

      I am not an expert Cloud Expenses so you would need to either log a Service Request with Oracle Support or address your question to the community in general or maybe with tags to people with more knowledge of Expenses.  My area of expertise is Cloud Payables, sorry.

      No. I never got a response from Oracle nor any solution was identified

Will the expense module accept such kind of purchases to be reimbursed to the employee through expense module? Yes if you configure properly - This is the AP forum so I suggest AGAIN THAT YOU POST ON THE EXPENSE FORUM WHERE YOU MIGHT GET SOME ASSISTANCE.

      2- Do we need to set up anything to on-board file from JPM to our server or we have to take help of Oracle Support to configure inbound directory for staging data file from JPM to be loaded into Fusion?  YOU SHOULD POST THIS ON THE EXPENSE FORUM.  THIS IS THE AP FORUM AND WE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT IMPLEMENTING  OR SETTING UP OF EXPENSES.  THAT IS WHY THERE IS AN EXPENSE FORUM.

      3- Can you share the file format for MasterCard program?  I DON'T WORK WITH EXPENSES SO NO, I HAVE CHECK FORMATS BUT I AM SURE SOMEONE ON THE EXPENSE FORUM COULD PROVIDE ONE TO YOU.  I SUGGEST YOU POST YOUR REQUEST ON THE EXPENSE FORUM.
