Oracle AME (Approvals Management) Expert withexperience Implementing it with Procure to Pay (P2P) in a Multi-Currency / Multi-Org Environment.
Client is in the Database Hosting and SaaS space
The Client is focused on the AME piece and how to implement it within a global company – specifically multi-national companies with invoices in different currencies (Multi Org/Multi Currency)and how that interactswith AME.
The Client needs someone who understands how to best design the AME to cover need for financial controls while keeping control and not making life too busy (this is the auto-approvals portion).
They want someone who can tell them how they need to design it and lead the effort. They don’t need someone who is just going to gather requirements, but someone who can come in and say “this is the best practice but let’s review how your company operates and merge the two to come up with a transformative solution thatyou can implement”.
In other words they need a leader who can tell them how to best implement AME on Procure to Pay.
Some Inventoryexperience would also be helpful. They also need experience in Two-Way/Three Way Matching.
This needs to be a Senior resource. Here are the 5 most important skills listed in order of importance.

Two-way / Three-way matching
2-way matching verifies that purchase order and invoice information match within your tolerances as follows:
Quantity billed is less than or equal to Quantity ordered
Invoice price is less than or equal to Purchase order price
3-way matching adds a third criterion to verify that receipt and invoice information match with the quantity tolerances you define:
Quantity billed is less than or equal to Quantity received
