Modern-day template management and document creation in SAP
One of the biggest internet service providers in Europe uses SAP for different business areas. In the past, AEPEX, a SAP service consultant firm in the Netherlands, created documents via SAP Smart Forms & Script for that company. This made the management and control of the templates very expensive. Choosing the templates was also very complex. Partially based on good experiences from the past, AEPEX made the choice to choose SmartDocuments for document assembly and document template management.
The result after a few weeks: a huge success according to Emiel Obdeijn from AEPEX. ’’The lead time for using SmartDocuments is very short and the documents are automatically stored on the SAP Content Server’’. The simple integration into SAP is a big and important advantage. SmartDocuments brought a flawless integration to the table. SmartDocuments easily integrated into the current SAP architecture, flexible and without large investment in time and money. This considerably shortened the whole document process.
”It is impossible to imagine document assembly and document template management without SmartDocuments”
Employees can make their own templates. Simply placing the right text block there where you need them. ’’Now we only have to come by and help when they need contextual changes by SAP consultants in SAP”.
‘’The lead time for customer documents only takes a few seconds. Even large invoice documents with more than 4000 individual items can be processes within 30 seconds! In the first year alone we saved hundreds of hours”.

With SAP Smart Forms & Script it would have taken approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Saving a significant amount of time and money.
