For many years Avelon has been involved in improving business processes using SAP workflow and BPM. SAP offers standard solutions. However, tuning of complex software is a time consuming challenge. Therefore Avelon has developed a number of implementation tools. These "packaged solutions" are based on best practices and have proven themselves well in practice.
Our solutions ensure that an implementation can be carried out quickly. Our experience and tools ensure that we can perform many of the services at a fixed price. Our implementation solutions can also serve as a starting point to improve a process rapidly and thoroughly. Hereafter we can implement your specific requirements.
Avelon offers solutions in the following areas:
The procurement process for companies often unstructured and does nog run on proper checks. This can lead to undesirable situations.
To solve this kind of problem Avelon has two products to its portfolio: Avelon PR & PO Approval. Both products help to structure and automate the purchase process: from the creation of a PO to releasing and communicating to a supplier of an order. They can be deployed together or independently depending on the wishes and needs of the organization.
Based on years of experience, a pre- configured based solution has been developed to support the processing of incoming invoices.
The Avelon template based solution 'digital invoice processing' covers the entire cycle of processing invoices. This means that the activities from the digitization of the documents until the payment and booking of the invoice are optimized.
Next to the optimization of the invoice processing we also paid attention to, i.e. an operational status reporting cockpit which can monitor the progress and possibly re-route tasks.
SAP Invoice Management (SIM), also known as Vendor Invoice Management (VIM), is recommended by SAP as the add-on for processing incoming invoices.
SIM has been developed by OpenText and is sold and supported by SAP. SIM helps to streamline invoice processing and minimize risks. It helps Accounts Payable departments to support the complete process from receipt, transformation, routing and auditing.
Based on our knowledge and experience in SIM implementations, a preconfigured SIM solution has been developed.
For the processing of SAP workflow tasks via mobile devices and web browsers, we recommend SAP Fiori.
SAP Fiori is a collection of applications for common and frequently used business processes. Many of these approval processes are supported by SAP workflow. The applications seamlessly work with the devices we use every day: smartphones, tablets and desktop.
Avelon has developed a SAP Fiori app that enables you to approve incoming invoices.
Are you already using SAP Workflow? Do you want to be sure that this is used in the most optimal way? Avelon has extensive experience with the optimizing of an already in-use SAP Workflow environment. As specialists, we can best judge whether or not optimization is needed. In case of a potential improvement, we are able to quickly realize the improvement and thus the benefits.
Do you need a clearly readable workflow report? Is cost- saving and performance-enhancing data archiving postponed because you're afraid of losing important information?
In its years of operation, Avelon has developed a variety of best practices and useful tools to improve existing Workflow implementations. Want to know more? Please contact us via the details on the contact page.
Avelon is founded in 2000 with a clear focus: improving processes by deploying SAP Workflow and BPM- and SAP-related technologies.
Our consultants have years of experience with SAP Workflow and SAP NetWeaver BPM. They have a thorough knowledge of the technical architecture. They have also built up the necessary process knowledge and are experienced in change management.
Avelon also provides training in the areas of process optimization and SAP Workflow management.
SAP Workflow is the most successful tool in optimizing business processes. Deploying SAP Workflow allows you to easily model complex business processes within your SAP environment. Avelon is the market leader in the Benelux in the field of SAP workflow consultancy. For a wide circle of renowned clients, we provide:
SAP Workflow is part of the SAP NetWeaver platform - it is therefore available as standard in every SAP environment and can be used for the process optimization of virtually any process.
SAP Workflow is particularly suitable for process modelling within applications where user interaction plays an important role. SAP Workflow has the following characteristics:
SAP Workflow is often used to automate the stable core processes of a company.
These processes create workflow tasks that must be handled by employees. Such tasks can be handled via the SAP GUI or, if you want to handle this through a Web application, via the SAP Portal Universal Worklist (UWL). Through the UWL, users have central access to several underlying SAP systems. Handling tasks is, of course, also possible via the SAP GUI. Click here for a demo of the possibilities of the UWL.

For many organizations, the handling of incoming invoices is a costly manual process. Manual entry, time-consuming research, comprehensive communication with the supplier, requests for additional communication from multiple parties, manual routing and follow-up on unpaid invoices are all aspects that consume a lot of time.
To resolve these types of problems, SAP has included a standard solution in its product portfolio called SAP Invoice Management (SIM). SIM helps to streamline invoice processing and minimize risks. It helps Accounts Payable (AP) to better structure the processes involved in the creating, managing, monitoring and routing of invoices within the organization. Further benefits include achieving payment terms, improving productivity and optimizing cash flows.
SAP Invoice Management, also known as OpenText Vendor Invoice Management (VIM), consists of the following components:
The scan client and content server are not covered by SAP Invoice Management, but are necessary for the process.
A = Invoice entry
B = Storage scanned invoice archive system (e.g., SAP Content Server)
C = SAP ICC document recognition
D = SAP SIM for document processing and approval
For the implementation of SIM Avelon has a partnership with SAP and Open Text. Avelon has already done several successful implementations of SIM. The success of these implementations is largely attributable to the consultants of Avelon who, working in the field of SAP invoice processing and workflow, have successfully completed many projects. Avelon can rightfully be called a specialist in this area! Avelon knows like no other the problems, opportunities and challenges you may face.
Based on this knowledge and experience, Avelon configured a solution called SIM READY TO RUN. By using this solution, the implementation time significantly shortens and you are also assured of a proven solution with which many users are already happily working. So, you don’t need to reinvent the wheel and you can take full advantage of all the possibilities that SAP Invoice Management provides!
Click here to watch the demo (NL) for an overview of SIM's functionality. More information can be found in the documents listed under 'SAP Invoice Management ' for the component SAP knowledge and on the SAP website.

Also, we would like to provide a demonstration or presentation so you can see what advantages this standard SAP solution can offer you!
Avelon guides its clients in successfully implementing and managing ongoing workflow processes.
The training of managers and users is crucial in achieving a successful implementation and - subsequently - process optimization.
SAP AG provides several standard training courses. These are aimed at increasing generic SAP Workflow knowledge and skills for process modelling. Avelon knows the content of the training well and can therefore advise on good matches to our users' specific needs.
The early recognition and proper prioritization of problems is of great importance. This is especially so if it is about those procedures that are a part of core business processes.
To give administrators the right skills to do their work, over its years of experience Avelon has developed two courses:
WFM100 - SAP Business Workflow Administration (2 days)
WFM200 - SAP Business Workflow Administration Advanced (2 days)
The following topics are covered in the course:
WFM100 - introduction to WFM, organizational structures, workflow structures and techniques, administration and troubleshooting
WFM200 - introducing management techniques, common problems, troubleshooting, case scenarios and advanced workflow techniques
In both courses theory is combined with examples and applications from common practice cases. Over the years, we have worked out various complete and useful tutorials. With the tutorials, a good variance between theory and concrete practical issues within the SAP Workflow system is achieved.
Special arrangements can also be made for a course with more of a focus on the processes in your organization.
