Codeless Platforms, based in Poole, England, has become a core integration partner with excelerateds2p, a source-to-pay (S2P) and supply chain transformation specialist, after initially working with the company to develop A2O Connect, a dedicated integration connector for SAP Ariba and Oracle ERP.
The companies’ goal is to help organizations that are already operating these two systems independently, therefore not gaining advantage from an automated single source-to-pay business process as well as open up the SAP Intelligent Spend Management ecosystem to the wider Oracle ERP customer base.
After identifying Codeless Platforms as the integration specialist it wanted to collaborate with, due to the flexibility of BPA Platform and the company’s experience of SAP and Oracle software, excelerateds2p and Codeless Platforms began working together to develop A2O Connect.
“Codeless Platforms is a growing company that offers flexibility and a genuine partnership, creating a "win-win" situation. We reviewed a number of integration platforms and tools, but Codeless Platforms as a package, their technology and their people, came out on top. Codeless Platforms took the time to understand our requirement and vision, then helped us build a commercial model that will be beneficial for all parties involved—Codeless Platforms, us and the end customer,” explained Ramesh Varsani, co-founder of excelerateds2p.
A2O Connect supports both purchasing and accounts payable operations, enabling customers to seamlessly integrate (both batch and real-time) data across purchasing, receiving, invoice, and payment business processes. Two-way integration provides the user with a single version of the truth with transaction and master data, leading to improvement in productivity, efficiency and control, and compliance, the companies say.
“Many companies, either by design or through unavoidable circumstances as their business grows, often end up operating with disparate best-of-breed systems, even across a single business process such as source to pay (S2P). However, they often fall at the final hurdle through a lack of integration,” said Varsani.
