170 Systems, a vendor of software that automates the finance function, has announced enhancements to its 170 MarkView Financial Suite. The new 170 MarkView Console incorporates 170 MarkView directly into the SAP workspace. In the process, accounts payable (AP) and purchasing users get a single, integrated environment inside of SAP, where they can perform AP tasks with direct access to the real-time SAP data for all transactions. A single screen consolidates all pertinent details from both SAP and 170 MarkView, including invoice image, workflow history and reasons for blocks. Users have live access to all essential information without any change of context. The new release also includes support for SAP 6.0, NetWeaver Application Server, SAP iViews and BEA WebLogic server. With iViews, 170 MarkView enables access to the line-of-business approvals queue in SAP's portal environment. Users have the option of participating in the process via the SAP interface or a traditional Web browser. The tool also supports invoice rendering, so that AP staff or general business approvers can work with a traditional "paper invoice" metaphor.
