A solution from Arvato Systems offers companies optimized invoice verification

  • The Arvato Systems product "S.I.M.S. Workflow Accounts Payable" in version 7 receives once again the certification as "Powered by SAP NetWeaver®"
  • New versioning enables optimized dialogs, automatic booking, and the integration of ZUGFeRD 2.0

Gütersloh – The "Workflow Accounts Payable" (Version 7) solution developed by Arvato Systems from its own product family "Smart Information Management Solutions" (S.I.M.S. WAP) has repeatedly received the certification "SAP Certified - Powered by SAP NetWeaver" from SAP SE. The Arvato Systems solution ensures optimized highly functional, and reliable invoice verification. Additionally, this certification ensures that the new version can be integrated with the SAP NetWeaver technology platform 7.50 as well as meeting the technology and quality requirements of the SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC). 

Thanks to consistent automation, S.I.M.S. WAP reduces the user's workload by accelerating processes from invoice receipt via e-mail, web service, or scan to data capture, invoice verification, posting, and archiving. The solution allows full flexibility to change the company code and document type before a final posting is made, whether you know the purchase order reference, dunning notices, down payment request, or third-party transaction. It is even possible to post debit-like processes such as credit memo procedures to customer accounts. The solution can be extensively adapted to the individual needs within departments. Flexible monitoring supports the control of the day-to-day business and the creation of reserves for period-end closing. Also, users can provide information at any time, have an overview of due dates, and support liquidity management. Compliance requirements are met through automated controls and logging, rights management, proxy verification, and complete electronic archiving. In case the help of the purchasing department is needed, the customer can integrate that help with only one click. During the Web release, the department can request specific information, such as serial numbers of tangible assets, or details for subsequent recharges via specially designed dialogs. 

Solutions that are certified as "SAP Certified - Powered by SAP NetWeaver" can be integrated more easily and quickly into SAP's solution environments. Customers benefit from improved interoperability with SAP applications and a large overall system of solutions running on SAP NetWeaver. Choosing an SAP-certified solution can also help reduce the total cost of IT investments and risks. 

"We are very pleased about the renewed certification of 'S.I.M.S. WAP'", explains Jan Schroeder, Product Manager Workflow and Process Optimization at Arvato Systems. "The new version offers a number of improvements. In addition to invoices, other document types were provided with specific functions - from serial postings to debit-side payments to credit memo procedures. In addition, there is a new 'Document Capture' module for the automatic recognition and completion of exactly these document types - without time-consuming setting up and waiting. Enhanced automatic booking functions directly after approval steps even without order reference. If there is no goods receipt, the goods are forwarded directly to the requester. The ZUGFeRD 2.0 integration - the new, extended version of the specification for the format of electronic invoices developed by the 'Forum elektronische Rechnung Deutschland' - is also an important innovation of 'S. I. M. S. WAP'. Last but not least, the extensive selection of various modules for depositing drawing authorizations takes away the worry from our customers that they will not be able to reproduce their special features. “
