Brussels, Ghent

Area of expertise:

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

Job Description

Microsoft is continuously improving their ERP Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations to facilitate the business processes of their end-users where typically Independent Software Vendors (ISV) had created solutions for.

Internship assignment

In this Finance themed internship, you will look into the automated process of importing and processing invoices as a business process and look into the new feature of Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations that enables this. You will also compare this out of the box functionality with the solution provided by a well-known ISV in this domain.

Organizations often work with third parties to process paper invoices by using an optical character recognition (OCR) service provider. The service provider returns machine-readable invoice metadata. To help with automation, the Accounts payable automation features let you consume these artifacts from Accounts payable.

You can automate Accounts payable vendor invoicing processes. These processes include submitting imported vendor invoices to the workflow system and matching posted product receipt lines to pending vendor invoice lines. The automated process shows information about the progress of a vendor invoice as it moves through each of the processes. This capability can help Accounts payable clerks and managers process vendor invoices more efficiently. It also helps reduce the errors and inefficiencies that can occur when information is manually entered and processed.


We want to invest time to build:

  • A good and clear understanding and documentation of how this feature is working.
  • A good and clear set of guidelines in order to fully benefit from this new feature.
  • Examples on how to use this new feature and how project implementations can benefit from this approach.
  • Comparison of this feature with the solution of a well-known ISV.
  • Present your analysis with a presentation to the Avanade Belgium Business Applications team!
