- Suffixtree ERP
OpenText is a leading provider of Enterprise Information Management (EIM) solutions. One of its flagship products is the OpenText Vendor Invoice Management (VIM) solution, which streamlines the accounts payable process by automating the capture, processing, and approval of invoices. SAP S/4HANA Cloud, on the other hand, is an intelligent ERP solution that enables organizations to run their core business processes in the cloud. In this case study, we will look at how Suffixtree helped a manufacturing company integrate OpenText VIM with SAP S/4HANA Cloud to improve their accounts payable process.
The manufacturing company was using OpenText VIM to process their supplier invoices. However, they were facing some challenges with the solution, such as manual data entry errors, slow processing times, and limited visibility into invoice status. They decided to move to SAP S/4HANA Cloud to take advantage of its intelligent automation capabilities, but they needed a solution to integrate OpenText VIM with SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
The main challenge was to integrate OpenText VIM with SAP S/4HANA Cloud while ensuring that the data was accurate and consistent. The manufacturing company had a large volume of invoices that needed to be processed, and any errors in the integration could result in delayed payments and unhappy suppliers. Additionally, the integration needed to be done quickly and efficiently to minimize downtime and avoid disrupting the accounts payable process.
Suffixtree proposed a solution that involved using SAP Cloud Platform Integration (CPI) to integrate OpenText VIM with SAP S/4HANA Cloud. SAP CPI is a cloud-based integration platform that enables seamless integration between different applications and systems. The solution involved the following steps:
Suffixtree also customized the integration flows to meet the specific requirements of the manufacturing company. For example, they added error handling and monitoring capabilities to ensure that any errors or issues were identified and resolved quickly. They also provided training to the accounts payable team to help them understand the new process and ensure a smooth transition.
The integration of OpenText VIM with SAP S/4HANA Cloud was completed in just a few weeks, with minimal disruption to the accounts payable process. The manufacturing company was able to process invoices faster and more accurately, resulting in improved supplier relationships and better cash flow management. The new process also provided greater visibility into the status of invoices, enabling the accounts payable team to identify and resolve issues more quickly. Overall, the solution provided significant time and cost savings, as well as improved operational efficiency.
