The accounts payable department performs a critical business process that is supposed to be a simple one to manage – receiving supplier invoices, comparing them against purchase orders and when approved posting invoices into SAP system. But easier said than done. Errors in supplier invoices are common and diverse. Corrections are made manually which delays the invoice handling process, increases cost, and takes up employee time – also outside the AP department.

Our job is to make supplier invoice processing easier and more efficient for our customers.

We built an easy-to-use supplier invoice processing tool for accounts payable department that enables self-service user interface to detect and to correct inaccurate data of incoming invoices. It provides a foundation to manage the entire purchase order invoicing process. The modern user interface was developed together with actual users from accounts payable department, i.e. AP clerks, and we constantly develop the tool e.g. by adding more automated functionality.

Process Flow, Features

We implemented SAP S/4HANA with the wide range of business processes. In the procure to pay process we faced significant slowness and issues as supplier invoices that were received from the invoice operator were inaccurate. Due to an incorrect data many corrections were needed before the actual invoice posting and that caused plenty of extra work and delays in invoice processing.
