Sonalika, a tractor manufacturer in India, has taken a significant leap towards digital transformation with the implementation of SAP Intelligent Technologies in its inbound logistics operations. The company has bid farewell to traditional manual processes, replacing them with a digital approach that promises enhanced efficiency and productivity.
The adoption of an AP Automation solution marks a significant milestone for Sonalika, streamlining their gate entry and accounts payable processes. By leveraging digital tools and automation, the company aims to eliminate manual and time-consuming tasks, boosting overall operational effectiveness.
The solution automates the invoicing entry process for over 800 vendors through the templatization of invoice formats. Supplier invoices are now scanned and stored in a Document Management System (DMS) folder.
Utilizing Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology and SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) Process Automation, gate entries are automatically posted. Additionally, account payable processes such as invoice posting, credit memos, and workflows are seamlessly managed using SAP Intelligent Robotic Process Automation (iRPA) tools.
Moreover, the digitalization efforts have provided the company with real-time visibility into its inbound logistics processes, enabling better planning, execution, monitoring, and management control. Dashboards with comprehensive insights have empowered Sonalika Tractors to make data-driven decisions and ensure streamlined operations.
Sonalika collaborated with Crave InfoTech, a global fast-growing tech company specializing in SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP), Digital Supply Chain, and Industry 4.0 digital initiatives, as its technology partner.
