Automation of purchasing processes with the help of Machine-Learning

Artificial intelligence in the form of machine learning can also be used in purchasing processes. In the following example case, which is operated 24/7 by SANDY, we show how exactly this can unfold its effect with a live connection to the SAP system.

The procurement department of a large company processes approx. 10,000 purchases per month via an SAP text input mask. The correct categorization of each order in one of approx. 700 material groups and one of approx. 100 G/L accounts is required for business management and tax recording. Since these two steps of categorization are currently performed manually,  the time-consuming process is to be supported.

Target group
 Companies with high data throughput in the purchasing department
Added values for your company
  Fast, simple and cost-effective integration into existing systems

  all advantages of “Software as a Service”, e.g. high availability, automatic updates, no maintenance effort

  no use of personal data

  flexible scaling with growing corporate structure

  high degree of security due to secured and encrypted interfaces

SANDY AI Solution
  Provision of an interface from the SAP system into the SANDY cloud solution

  During processing in SAP, the purchase order information is sent to the interface. Material group and G/L account are determined automatically and the result is returned, stored in SAP fields, and considered in the further ordering process

 Learning system: Feedback from the employees is automatically played back and used for continuous improvement of the forecast quality

 Multi-label classification with little data, but many possible words

 To achieve fast response times, pre-trained models are stored in RAM, which can be replaced by new models without service interruption


  Extension of a rigid SAP process with modern machine learning features.
