3. SAP Discovery Center Mission - Process and approve your invoices with SAP Build Process Automation
Processing of invoices is often still distributed across different people, tools, and platforms. Since invoices are often received via PDFs or images, data needs to be extracted from those which is tedious work: a person needs to retrieve the data from the document and manually enter it into the target system. When it comes to processing many documents it becomes a huge challenge and requires a lot of time dedicated to this task. Also, manual matching is repetitive and error-prone.
The use case is to:
Scan for invoice attachments received in Microsoft Outlook
Apply AI capability to extract information from invoice documents using SAP Build Process Automation.
Based on the document extraction accuracy score for each field of invoice manage SAP S/4HANA posting mode (Automatic or Manual) using Decisions.
SAP Build Process Automation automatically posts extracted invoice info to SAP S/4HANA and also adds the invoice as an attachment
Less accurate invoices (based on extraction accuracy score) are sent for manual processing by triggering an SAP Build Process Automation Approval flow with extracted information, where the human processor can approve and post invoice or Reject
