I specialise in bespoke solutions for companies planning and producing with SAP®: Solutions to help them work better and innovate.
My solutions combine a good understanding of business’ functional needs with a low-risk approach to enhancing the standard functionality.
Each company has particular ways to operate, to measure and see the situation as well as their unique language to communicate.
SAP can adapt to any requirement with a wide range of tools – from system configuration to an enhancement platform to change the core functionality.
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) – based on operational reports – is an example of how the standard system can be extended to work more efficiently and made the user happier.
Bots in the Background
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is letting the system do the work.
If decision rules are clear, the system can take action. This saves time spent by users in routine work so they can use it in value-added activities.
There is no point for the users to waste time collecting information and doing tasks that the system can do in a fraction of a second.
Achieve Process Automation in SAP with custom reports that act as Bots, responding to events or constantly checking for inconsistencies and taking corrective action.
User Assistants with One-Click Action
In cases when no automatic rule can be applied, or the decision depends on information outside SAP, the user need to decide.
RPA assistants collect and combine information from different sources and present it to the user in the best way to support a decision.
With One-Click Action, the user tells the system how to proceed to correct the situation. Alternatively, it can take the user to the transaction screen where a manual correction is needed.
Process Automation can substantially improve productivity and user satisfaction.
Tailored reports that bring you collected and pre-processed information to decide and take action. If the solution is predefined by business rules, the system can take automatic action by itself, running transactions and changing fields values, running background jobs, etc.
Operational reports can run periodically in the background, solving problems and adapting the system to changing conditions.
Event Driven Checks
When the situation changes the system reacts to the new conditions, making required corrections based on predefined business rules.
When the user is saving a change, the system can do business specific checks and ask for confirmation to do the automatic corrections.
The system can also prevent the user from introducing data inconsistent with the business specific rules.
