Clive Jefferies from Runbook will present Robotic automation of your Financial close inside of SAP.

Learn how to automate your SAP financial close - Runbook invites you to take a 30 minute test drive of their SMART Close solution. See for yourself how the most common closing tasks in SAP can be automated, tracked and take days off your close.

SMART Close is a global solution that automates the financial close for many of the largest SAP customers in the world, including Siemens, Novartis, Bayer, Proctor and Gamble, Heineken, Cargill and Philips.

This session will show how SMART Close delivers:

  •  Full control over your record-to-report cycle
  • Intelligent automation of key tasks inside of SAP:   
  • Opening/Closing Periods
  •  Reconciliations
  • Automatic Journal postings
  •  Validation of any SAP account for any output
  • Highlight exceptions based on tolerance, dates or error codes 
  • Management of both your global and local closing tasks with full visibility 
  • Automation levels of more than 70% to not only cut costs but also ensure accurate and auditable data

Because Runbook sits inside of SAP, Runbook can ensure that they work on your live data, leveraging your existing SAP User IDs and security profiles and leaving the output safely inside your own database. No exporting of large batch files or writing lines of code, Runbook delivers automation directly into the hands of your financial users.  

James Willis from SAP will present S/4 HANA Finance in 2016. Find out how S/4 HANA Finance has continued the journey to Run Live to  Run Simple in the Office of CFO.

From the release of sFin1503 the LOB Finance Solutions have continued on from the SAP Simple Finance experience bringing about 

  • Faster processing times
  • Easier access to information at all levels of the business,
  • Reimagined Business Decision Making 

The session will cover the Universal Journal, latest reporting options (including Boardroom experience) and Fiori tiles for the Office of the CFO.

Amanda Byrne from Worcestershire County Council will present their Archiving experience. Worcestershire County Council signed a seven-year contract with Liberata, the business process service provider, to deliver a range of transformational Human Resources and Finance Services to the Council and local schools. This transition meant that historical Finance data and HR & Payroll data for Organisations who no longer purchased these services back from WCC, needed to be removed from the SAP landscape.  Amanda Byrne will share her experience of removing data from the environment prior to the move and discuss how two SAP Partners; Proceed and Epi-Use assisted with this challenge 

At the SIG we will be dialing in to the SAP Customer Connection for ERP Financials 2017 Final Call webinar.

One of our SIG chairs Roger Hanspal will share some information on a recent trip our volunteers took to Walldorf to meet the SAP developers.
