First RPA vendor to certify automations at the API-level; Enables SAP customers to automate processes with ease
NEW YORK – December 16, 2019 – UiPath, the leading enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software company, today announced that two of its SAP API Automations have achieved SAP-certified integrations with SAP NetWeaver® and SAP S/4HANA®, respectively. The proven integrations enable businesses that use SAP solutions to automate processes via the SAP Business API (SAP BAPI) with simplicity and ease. This allows customers to accelerate their digital transformation, automate critical business operations, and ease migrations.
UiPath’s SAP API Automations allow enterprises to use software robots for the automation of SAP processes through SAP’s own business API in a way that is intuitive for RPA developers. Integrating robots directly with the SAP API helps businesses to make standardized automations especially robust regardless of possible changes to the SAP UI that may result – from enhancements to upgrades. Typical standard use cases for business API automation are sales order entry, invoice verification, update of master data and many more.
Businesses are deploying RPA to automate mundane back office processes in finance, supply chain and HR and moving people to more value-added functions.
With the new SAP BAPI integration for UiPath robots, SAP customers can now combine the flexibility they have already experienced with RPA UI automation with the robustness of robots calling the SAP business API directly.
