SAP Accounts Payable Reporting and Analysis

Convenient visibility to AP information is a hallmark of successful financial supply chain management. But when CFOs, treasurers and other stakeholders are forced to contend with paper-based AP processes, their ability to make informed financial decisions is extremely limited. SAP accounts payable reporting and analysis solutions dramatically improve AP visibility and equip enterprise executives with the insights they need to compete in today's markets.

The Need for SAP AP Reporting and Analysis Tools

Across all industries, SAP users are recognizing the value of integrating SAP accounts payable reporting and analysis tools with their existing ERP systems. More than ever before, decision-makers operate in a dynamic business environment that requires real-time reporting mechanisms for cash flow forecasting and other financial functions.

But far too often, enterprises are held captive by a series of limitations and shortcomings that characterize their SAP AP reporting and analysis ecosystem:

  • Inability to capture critical data
  • Stale information and data
  • Inaccessible or poorly organized data
  • Lack of system integration
  • Limited access to key variables
