SAP Fiori is a collection of apps for common and frequently used business processes, which are supported by SAP workflow. The applications work seamlessly across the devices that we daily use in our business environment; smartphones, tablets, or desktop.
The applications of SAP Fiori provide functionality for SAP workflow approvals, quickly retrieve information and several self-service tasks for managers and employees.
Because SAP Fiori is simple and easy to use on different devices, employees and managers have access to important business processes and information anywhere and anytime. The total process time of business processes can easily be reduced because approvals in SAP workflows are accessible at any time, regardless on which device the employee has access to on that certain moment.
SAP Fiori provides applications for SAP workflow processes in several areas such as Human Resources (HR/ESS/MSS), Purchase-to-Pay (FI/MM) en Sales & Distribution (SD). Examples amongst other are enter timesheets, approve timesheets, approve shopping carts, approve purchase orders, and create sales orders.
Furthermore, SAP Fiori also provides functionality for handling generic SAP workflow approvals. This provides the possibility to create custom approvals for company specific SAP workflow processes on top of the standard SAP Fiori applications.

AVELON FIORI INVOICE APPROVAL
The Avelon Fiori Invoice Approval app allows you to efficiently approve incoming invoices. Whether you're using a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone, you can always assess the invoices assigned to you. Besides all the invoice information (amount, invoice date, accounting data) of the recorded SAP document, the original document (eg scanned invoice, PDF or electronic invoices) are displayed directly in the app.
The workflow history of the invoice (including the accounts payable clerk, previously approved or rejected the invoice or who redirected the approval flow) and any notes that have been added during the process, are available in the app. You have all the data grouped together to make a solid assessment. Your decision will be processed real-time in the SAP backend system.
Because the Avelon Fiori Invoice Approval app is build on the SAP standard Fiori platform, it has all the benefits of the SAP Fiori application design, for example a responsive design to ensure that the app is available everywhere - on desktop, tablet and smartphone. The app can easily be integrated in the SAP Fiori Launchpad.

- Approve or reject, with the possibility/requirement to specify the reason;
- Forward to another buyer or agent;
- Information request;
- Return to accounts payable;

The Avelon Fiori Invoice Approval app is built for both invoice management solutions based on SAP Invoice Management (SIM) as for customer-specific invoice workflows.
