The UiPath Accelerators for SAP ECC for Procurement offer a wide variety of pre-built activities for typical automations that UiPath customers use on top of SAP ECC to automate their Procurement processes.
Predefined workflows can be used for both SAP Robotic Process Automation and as an SAP Test Case, thus creating synergies in your automation journey.
They are built for both SAP WinGUI automation as well as native integration via SAP BAPI to ensure that automations are robust, stable and performant.
Use them out of the box to accelerate implementation time of your SAP automation projects.
Sample use case: Purchase Order Creation
One of our automotive clients had a manual process that required employees to use SAP ECC, email, spreadsheets, and a desktop web portal. The workflow was frustrating as it took an average of three hours to handle one purchase request. On top of the tedious process, a lot of errors occurred. The solution was to implement a robot that picks purchase requisitions from the web portal. The robot enters the information from the purchase requests in SAP, using the activity “Create a new purchase requisition”, checks for approvals via email, and finally creates the purchase orders with the activity “Create a new purchase order”. This improved employee experience by reducing the processing time by 78% compared to the original process, eliminated errors and accelerated the benefits from digital transformation.
