Accounts Payable Automation for a Leading Packaging Company.




Accounts Payable Automation


Global manufacturing sectors are experiencing continued growth. However, the historically tight labor market was a potential constraint on the industry’s momentum. Another often-discussed constraint to continuing manufacturing’s momentum has been the ongoing uncertainty in tariffs and their subsequent impact on trade flows. Costs throughout the manufacturing value chain are seemingly impacted every day.


About The Client

Our client is India’s largest packaging company, specialized in sterilizable flexible packaging materials with high barriers and incredible shelf presence, specifically designed for thermal treatment.


Key Issues

Our client used the SAP BAPI platform for its operations, but they faced a critical issue: they still had to create the customer code manually to maintain the customer data.

  • Bot logging into the required systems.
