Yes, we did it again: for the benefit of our customers SAP Best Practices for Intelligent Automation for SAP Business ByDesign provides now full access to Document Information Extraction service at no extra costs. In release 21.09 of SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation, the Cloud Studio is integrating the Document Information Extraction from SAP AI Business Service in its automations to extract data from documents. You can find more information Additional Licensing Implication here.

As such we have redesigned bots that are using the Document Information Extraction service to use the IRPA incorporated version of the service, and we recommend updating the bot to the newest version to make full use of these feature advantages:

Don’t forget that Document Information Extraction from SAP AI Business Service is supporting the following languages and countries.

As you know Managing inventory levels across different sites and efficient purchase order creation are key tasks for any business. Although SAP Business ByDesign already supports the automatic creation of stock transfer proposals based on a demand situation or target inventory levels, this might not be sufficient to reflect all aspects of the supply chain.

What about stock transfer requirements that are determined outside of the SAP Business ByDesign system? They need to be entered manually!

To reduce the manual and time-consuming task, users can now easily store their stock transfer demand in an Excel and use the new Automated Stock Transfer Order bot.

Likewise, as customers also need to manually create purchase orders. So, instead of a manual upload, users can now use the new Automated Purchase Order Upload bot that automatically picks the excel file and creates purchase orders in SAP Business ByDesign.
