If you currently use SAP and are performing manual or excel reconciliations, then it’s time to learn how to do it directly in SAP.
SAP, as initially delivered, doesn’t have the functionality to process vendor statements. In business, vendor statements are processed nonetheless, and SAP clients are forced to process statements manually outside of SAP. BEST SAP is a fully integrated SAP add-on module that allows moving from manual, non-system statement processing to a more efficient, auditable, reportable system in SAP. Simply, the benefits are all of those associated with system processing rather than manual processing.

If your vendors send statements to you electronically, it can also be sent directly to SAP. Depending on your business and situation, you might also have vendors that send you paper statements, which can also be loaded into SAP in a fast way. If you have a vendor portal, statements can be loaded via this portal. You can also set up an email address that doesn’t have to be monitored by a human, as BEST SAP will monitor this inbox and upload any vendor statements that it receives.
As soon as a statement is loaded into SAP, it will automatically be matched to the items within SAP. If the product can’t be matched to an item, it will go further up the procurement chain to find a match. The reconciliation report can then be processed with the click of a button.
