Cooperation with SAP

Infrastructure for delivering applications

More than 215,000 companies around the world use solutions from Citrix Systems, and the company’s invoice receipt processing system has to manage thousands of transactions. Consequently, Citrix wanted a solution to make the invoice receipt process faster, more controlled, and more transparent. Furthermore, the company wanted a solution to increase the value of its existing SAP investments, with which Citrix wants to significantly improve the quality of its relationships with its suppliers.

“No other solution providers were better positioned than the Open Text and SAP teams to support Citrix Systems with our accounts payable (AP) project,” said Ahern. “They brought the right combination of technology and expertise.”

“AP is about getting the bills paid, yet, generating invoices and collecting payments has traditionally been a labor-intensive process. Paper invoices and related documents result in money and time wasted on filing, retrieving, copying, mailing or searching for misplaced, misfiled paper,” said Patrick Barnert, vice president, SAP Solutions Group at Open Text. “Without an effective process solution, it is virtually impossible to generate metrics that reduce costs and improve compliance. Our AP solutions offer powerful capabilities that streamline and automate the invoice handling process, and thus eliminate issues that drive up costs linked to each AP transaction.”

As a provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions in cooperation with SAP, Open Text has experience with more than 2,700 SAP implementations. Open Text is an SAP software solution partner with products that have certified integrations with SAP applications.
