AP Automation for SAP

Are you a SAP user that is still managing vendor invoices using email? Did you think an enterprise grade AP automation solution that integrates with SAP was out of your reach? What if there was an option to leverage what you already own to automate accounts payable workflow, namely Office 365? That is exactly what DynamicPoint has accomplished.  We have brought together SAP, Office 365, and lastly, our EasyAP365 accounts payable invoice processing application to cost effectively receive, route for approval, and create the appropriate accounts payable transaction in SAP for vendor invoices.

Why Do I need Invoice Automation with SAP?

EasyAP365 automate the otherwise manual receipt, processing, approval and SAP integration of accounts payable vendor invoices. Purchase Order (PO) invoices are matched direct to the POs that exist within SAP. Non-PO invoices are coded to SAP general ledger accounts.

Why Use Office 365 for AP Invoice Automation?

Microsoft Office 365 provides all the major building blocks for AP Automation including AI Builder OCR capabilities, Power Automate workflows and SharePoint document storage. As many SAP customers also have Office 365, you get to leverage what you already own without buying and maintaining additional products. In addition, these tools provide greater flexibility in handling AP Invoice exceptions than other solutions.

How does DynamicPoint’s EasyAP365 work with SAP?

DynamicPoint’s approach is to continue to fully support SAP as the accounting system of record. We query vendors directly from the application, validate GL accounts, verify invoices are not duplicates and ultimately create the accounts payable or purchasing transaction directly in SAP.  There are no syncs or data being moved from one system to the other.  We instead use live integration to deliver seamless SAP compatibility. Any transaction that is created in SAP will contain a link to drill back to the EasyAP365 app to view the originating invoice. This gives you full visibility to access all of the Office 365 stored documentation directly from the SAP interface.
