SAP AP automation: What is it and how does it work?

What is it and how does it work?

One of the most influential platforms in the enterprise resource planning (ERP) space, is the SAP Business One platform – a business management tool that incorporates all functions, from marketing, to supply chain, even human resources.

And one of the most vital of these structures is its accounting capability. As business owners, we know that tracking money in every phase of its movement within an enterprise is crucial to maintaining optimum fiscal control. And within that accounting capability, accounts payable (AP) – the money owed to a business’s suppliers and vendors, requires even more of a focused eye. 

And that’s where DOKKA comes in. 

A pioneering accounting automation tool, DOKKA merges seamlessly with the SAP Business One ERP solution, to enhance the platform’s AP feature. Here’s how it works.

What is SAP AP automation and how does it work

Automation has allowed us to truly embrace our ultra-modern state of being always-on. With automation, we get to travel faster, shop faster, hail a taxi faster. If you think about it, most of what we need to do in a day is achieved more efficiently and much better by businesses that are embracing this directive of automation. It’s a no-brainer then, that your business should adopt automation in every way it can. Because if not, there’s a risk you could be left floundering in the market, as your competition adapts quicker, through more efficient processes.

The benefits of SAP AP automation

The SAP Business One accounts payable function is augmented through DOKKA’s machine learning capability, allowing for the exposure of objects, fields, and operations to connect through a single layer, and mutually import and export vital AP data.

But what exactly, are the benefits of such a merging?

  • Time saved – In AP, processing invoices manually can be extremely time-consuming. DOKKA automatically scans invoices, indexes invoice information, and stores it all in digital filing cabinets for quick and easy retrieval.
  • Error reduction – Where manual data entry is concerned, human error can hinder business processes and even be the cause of money lost. DOKKA’s integration with SAP Business One, validates data to ensure accurate accounting at all times.
  • Money saved – AP automation will give greater control over cash flow, so an organisation can prevent unnecessary costs at month end. 
  • Efficiency for customer satisfaction – more efficient processes will prevent late payments, delays and errors that slow-down a business’s production time. A happy, satisfied customer base means a heightened reputation for you, and perpetual business.

How to get started with SAP AP automation

SAP Business One accounts payable integrates with DOKKA accounting automation as an entirely adaptable digital architecture within the ERP. To allow the import and export of data between the two, the SAP Business One service layer simply needs to be installed and activated within the DOKKA tool. Once completed, the URL from the SAP Business One Integrator is added to the DOKKA integrations connection. Relevant users can then simply log in with their regular SAPS credentials and create additional companies.

DOKKA accounting automation isn’t simply an add-on to your ERP. It’s a tool for efficiency, and efficiency means better business.
