Acubiz is a system where an administrator specifies which groups/roles the individual users should have. This article deals with the following groups/roles
All users created in Acubiz are automatically assigned the role of Employee.
It is not a role that can be removed, but the role gives the employee right to make settlements in Acubiz and log into Acubiz One.
Being assigned the approver group (role) basically only means that the user can be added as an approver to other users. To become an approver for a user, you must be added as an approver for a user. How to change approver on a user >>
If you have been added as an approver for one (or more) employees, you will receive all costs from these employees, for approval. An approver who receives the cost of approval may have several checkpoints before approving or rejecting.
- Is it a business related expense?
- Is the expense within the agreed framework - and thus in order?
- Is there correct documentation for the expenses (receipts)?
- Are the costs correctly dimensioned (department, project, etc.)?
Of course, there may be more or fewer checkpoints for an approver than the above, but the principle is that the approver must relate to the costs the employee submits for approval.
It is important that the approver actually checks the points that are expected, as pressing the APPROVE button is explicitly a managerial approval. There is a responsibility!
An approver has the following options:
- Standard Acubiz feature
- Approve expenses
- Reject expenses (back to the employee with a message)
- Acubiz purchasing features
- Move the cost to another approver
- Edit expenses
A financial user works exclusively via the web interface with his financial tasks. If a financial user is to settle expenses, Acubiz One must be used
The Finance group are assigned to those users that will verifi the settlements that are made by employees and approved by an approver, before settling shall be exported to the ERP system for accounting.
The finance group contains the following areas:
- Must approve all approved expenses from employees
- Can make changes to the approved expenses
- Can reject approved settlements - back to the employee or the approver.
- Can check the documentation of all expenses
- Can make a permanent match between credit card transactions and employees when an employee uses his credit card for the first time
