PDF Invoice to SAP Ariba converter launches on SAP App Center

CloudTrade Technologies (UK) has announced that its PDF Invoice to SAP Ariba Capability – Customisations solution is now available for purchase on the SAP App Center, the digital marketplace for SAP partner offerings. PDF Invoice to SAP Ariba Capability integrates with SAP Ariba and delivers end-to-end automaton for supplier application generated PDF invoices to their customers’ finance applications.

CloudTrade and SAP Ariba released their Standard PDF Invoice conversion capability in September 2018 to accommodate the standard Ariba Network data items. “We are now immensely proud and very excited to be releasing an extension of this service to accommodate buyer ERP Customization requirements on the App Center,” said Steve Britton – Client Director at CloudTrade.

The customization service reads and converts machine-generated PDF invoices with 100% data accuracy at header and line level, converts and enriches the acquired data to a format required by both the Ariba Network and the buyer’s finance application.

The service is free to the supplier and reduces their costs, as their invoice is simply emailed or upload to the SAP Ariba Network. The buyer receives a validated data stream together with the original invoice for automated upload to their downstream processes.

David Cocks, CEO CloudTrade, says: “We have been working with SAP Ariba since 2017 building an integrated, cloud-based service to meet the requirements and demands of some of the largest companies in the world. Both the Standard and Customised services provide the next step in P2P automation, relieving the labour-intensive and error-prone re-keying of invoices without sacrificing data completeness or accuracy.” 

The SAP App Center provides realtime access to approximately 1,900 partner solutions that complement and extend their SAP solutions, enabling digital transformation of their business. SAP App Center customers can buy solutions directly from partners and centrally manage purchases, billing and vendor communications.
