Vendor logs in to the BEST Statement Web Portal and loads their own Excel statement in the required format along with the PDF statement version. The BEST Statement Portal validates the Excel statement.
Statement files are imported into SAP and the BEST Vendor Recons module for automated matching and reconciliation activities.
When the vendor sends the statement, the original files are stored for later viewing from SAP.
All statements loaded can be tracked in SAP in the BEST Statement Reader Cockpit. Statements in error can be re-processed directly from the cockpit if required. All errors and successes can be tracked.
As a Master Data transaction in SAP, vendors can be activated to be allowed to use the website portal at company code / vendor account group and vendor level and their email addresses used to restrict access to the BEST Statement Portal.
If a statement fails validation, the errors will be emailed to the vendor.
