Open Item Clearing Automation

SAP Open Item Challenges

Over time, open items can build up in SAP, and it is not uncommon for organizations to have millions that are uncleared. These open items create IT, operational, and financial risk as they can slow system performance and lead to unexpected write-offs. It can take years to manually clear a backlog of open items.
