Basware’s invoice automation receives SAP Certification

3rd November 2008

Basware, a provider of financial process automation software, says that it has received dual SAP certification for its Basware anyERP Adapter interface solution. The adapter, awarded with the "Certified Integration for SAP® NetWeaver™" endorsement, integrates Basware’s invoice automation and procurement solutions with more than 200 different ERP systems.  This includes the latest 6.0 version of SAP as well as all previous SAP versions.

Basware’s invoice automation and procurement solutions are designed to add value to companies’ existing ERP and other business systems.  “Four years ago we took a bold decision to move to a fully Service Oriented Architecture (“SOA”) model in ERP integration.  Since then, we have been able to demonstrate better business agility, change resilience and best-in-class version support.  This shortens deployment time and delivers better Total Cost of Ownership (“TCO”) compared with traditional or ‘built-into’ integration models used by many other vendors,” says Jari Tavi, CTO at Basware.

SAP represents the largest installed ERP base for Basware with over 250 organisations using Basware solutions in conjunction with their SAP application.  Combined with the Basware Enterprise Purchase to Pay portfolio, it provides a high level of automation for procurement and invoice workflows.

“Basware anyERP Adapter enabled a smooth upgrade to the most recent SAP 6.0 version, truly delivering the promise of Service Oriented Architecture and lower TCO.  Using the SAP NetWeaver™ certified interface was the right choice for us,” says Kurt de Smet, Accounting Manager, Panasonic Batteries.

Basware has been an SAP Software Partner since 2002 and has obtained the highest level of SAP product certifications. Basware offers full support for all SAP versions starting from SAP 4.5. The Basware anyERP Adapter is based on Microsoft .NET technology and has certified integration to SAP R/3 4.5B, 4.6C and Enterprise 4.7 as well as SAP ECC 5.0.
