What are the functionalities of LA?

Using the LA, you will be able to view the last 50 transactions (PO and Invoices) with NTU at the Ariba supplier portal.   From the portal, you may trigger the PO to your email to process the order and later perform PO-Flip[1] to generate an e-invoice to your buyer.  It supports submission of basic documents through Ariba network such as Order Confirmation (OC), Advance Ship notice (ASN) and Invoice.  ​

[1] PO-Flip is a simple process enabled by Ariba Network that allows a supplier to easily convert a Purchase Order into an Invoice, and transmit that Invoice to the customer that placed the Purchase Order.
