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.

Unexpected write-offs

Unnecessary reevaluation

Complex requirements

Upgrade complexity

Significant manual effort

Poor system performance

Benefits of Automation

BlackLine’s purpose-built solutions for SAP use business rules and logic to automatically match the open items and post corresponding clearing documents to SAP. Little to no manual effort is needed to clear millions of open items in a very short time.
