SAP Credit Management Software – Credit Decision
HighRadius Credit Decision Accelerator automates the credit management process, enabling credit quicker and more accurate decisions. The solution’s three primary components are automated credit data aggregation, a configurable scoring engine, and a configurable workflow engine. Data inputs are automatically collected from sources like credit bureaus, trade group and financial websites, seamlessly integrated into SAP and merged with relevant ERP data like payment and order history for a full picture of credit worthiness. End users can define and maintain risk models that automate evaluation and configure workflows that support hierarchical credit limit approval and automatically monitor and notify on profile changes. The result is a streamlined process that better manages risk, reduces bad-debt, and maximizes sales by accelerating credit approvals.
The accelerator is certified by SAP and built on top of the SAP Netweaver platform in ABAP code. This provides real-time data integration and lower total cost of ownership than point solutions that are not native to SAP.
