Executive Summary


A/R and IT Landscape is Changing Rapidly

Scaling business within SAP ecosystem

For most enterprises, implementing a top-of-the-line ERP like SAP is a mammoth investment. But still, it may fall short of delivering certain capabilities in order-to-cash due to the following complexities in ERP and A/R landscape.

Order to Cash Landscape & Complex SAP landscape

As per a Hackett survey, 85% of respondents indicated that the top consideration when choosing automation technology is the ease of integrating A/R processes with their ERPs.

For addressing the growing challenges, A/R teams have the option of either continuing to invest in SAP enhancements and add-ons or adopting best-of-breed cloud solutions to plug in the gaps.

Major Concern for Automation

Build vs Buy

When evaluating A/R automation technology that integrates tightly with SAP, these are the reasons why buying a technology off the shelf triumphs over building it in-house.

Paying for Results vs Paying for Technology

On ‘building’ a solution in-house, you are actually paying for the nuts and bolts and the man-hours behind the project. In contrast, when you are ‘buying’ a solution, you have the flexibility of negotiating the pricing with your vendor and make a compelling business impact.

Faster ROI

With getting a solution built in-house, the project tends to have an extended timeline and exceed the budget. ‘Buying’ a technology, on the other hand, helps you achieve a positive ROI faster with speedy implementation.

Future proof

When you opt for the ‘build’ approach, you are stuck with the technology. In contrast, ‘buying’ a solution positions you to change your decision depending on evolving technology and trends.

This e-book outlines the must-have feature checklist and how A/R specific cloud software could seamlessly integrate to SAP ECC and S/4HANA to help A/R teams unlock productivity without disrupting the existing IT landscape.
