VENDOR | Information about vendors

Regardless of a company’s size and industry, companies need to store information about each of their vendors. Uniconta stores all master vendor information in the vendor list, so users can have clear overview of all vendor data.

Uniconta provides full currency management for foreign vendors. Exchange rates can either be updated automatically or users can select a fixed rate.

Sending via e-mail

Instead of sending out documents by letter, documents can be send via e-mail directly from Uniconta. This saves both time and money for printing and envelopes as well as postage.

All Bank formats

Payment information can be set up for each vendor. Payment proposals can then be created in Uniconta and sent to the bank. All types of bank formats can be handled including bank transfers, foreign payments and the following Danish payment types: 71, 73, 75 and 04.

Payment ID

Payment ID functionality is built into Uniconta, so that users only need to enter the purchase invoice numbers instead of spending time entering long payment IDs.

Mass Updates

Uniconta provides unique mass update functionality for purchases, saving time and optimizing workflow.

National company number lookup [Europe]

When a national company number is entered for a new vendor, Uniconta automatically looks up the vendor in the national company register and completes the other fields for the user, such as name and address.

UBL [Europe]

Uniconta can import electronic UBL files received from vendors. The UBL file information is uploaded to the purchase invoice and processed from there.
