Hicron, a subcontractor working for the company PKP Informatyka, has built an interface to handle invoices for electricity issued by PKP Energetyka for PKP SA. Until now, some tasks in the process were performed manually. After a detailed analysis and issuing a proposal for optimization of pre-implementation, with the support of SAP NetWeaver Process Integration (SAP PI), the company was able to automate the process of accounting invoices for electricity.
The IT infrastructure existing in PKP SA has been extended with a new component of the integration platform enabling significantly shorter processes without compromising the customers’ costs. The 7-month project was completed in May of this year.
The implementation analysis showed that the greatest potential for changes occurred in the area of introduction of invoices into SAP RE-FX and their further processing. Thus, solution architects from Hicron offered a possibility to optimize e.g. binding and renewal of contracts for each invoice processed in the module SAP RE-FX, input of electricity meter readings into SAP, the transmission of accounting results for the financial and accounting document workflow system.
Hicron reports that PKP SA has already noted significant time savings by automating part of the process.
