User guide for Duplicate Invoice Checker
User Profile

The Action View for the Duplicate Invoice Checker is configured to be used by Accounts Payable (A/P) specialists responsible for reviewing and resolving duplicate invoices.

Purpose of the Action View
  • Presents potential duplicate invoice groups detected using Celonis fuzzy matching algorithms.

  • Notifies AP specialists and enables them to take action on potential duplicates in time.

  • Gathers feedback on duplicate groups based on user actions and tracks value realization.

User Interface and Functionalities

The Action View gives the responsible A/P specialist an overview of duplicates currently detected by Celonis and KPIs reflecting value realization. At a glance, the following figures are presented:

  • Duplicate Value (open): Indicates the total value of potential duplicates discovered by the algorithm

  • # Duplicates (open): Indicates the number of duplicate groups discovered by the algorithm

  • Duplicate Value (valid): Indicates the value of confirmed duplicates by the user

  • # Duplicates (valid): Indicates the number of duplicate groups confirmed by the user


Using filters, the A/P specialist can narrow down the duplicate backlog to specific company codes, vendors, or other fields, customizable by the user.


In the Action View, the A/P specialist can switch between the ‘Open Duplicates’-tab which lists potential duplicates identified by the ML-sensor, and the ‘Resolved Duplicates’-tab which contains past verified cases.


The Action View displays potential duplicates grouped and summarizes the most important information about a duplicate group, such as its total value and the detection patterns used.


Each duplicate group can be displayed in a detailed view, showing the details of the potential duplicate invoices.


After reviewing the duplicate case, the A/P specialist can manually assign a status to the whole duplicate group by either marking it as a real 'Duplicate' case or a 'No Duplicate' case.


In the ‘Resolved Duplicates' tab, the user can evaluate past duplicate patterns and algorithm classification quality.
