Accounts Payable Automation SmartStart

Challenge: Improve accessibility of AP documents with a simple scanning and workflow solution thereby increasing accuracy and visibility

Oxygen, a DXC Technologies Company has developed a simple but extremely effective solution delivering accounts payable(AP) invoice scanning and processing within SAP using scanned images provided by a scanning solution. The SmartStart utilises SAP workflow processing to notify and route links for scanned images to the relevant authorised personnel and launch the applicable SAP transaction to process the invoice or credit note

The solution then automatically attaches the image link to the SAP financial document and can also be configured to extend functionality to attach scanned images for late archived invoices and attach scanned documents against vendor records.

Once the incoming AP documents are scanned and linked to the financial documents they can be viewed by authorised SAP personnel. This ability to view the scanned document during financial document posting reduces invoice errors.
