Positive business development in 2021 for xSuite Group
Growing trend toward digitalization and the cloud key to driving business – Big international names among Group's new clients
By: xSuite Group
xSuite is a global software manufacturer specializing in the automation of document-based business processes in SAP, in particular the automation of incoming invoice processing. Supplementary to this, the Group also offers solutions for related areas such as procurement processes. Within these areas, xSuite provides companies with expert support and advice to help them implement their digitalization strategies. Around the world, some 200,000 users across more than 1,200 companies and organizations work with xSuite solutions, together processing over 60 million invoices per year.
Despite the global supply bottlenecks that last year affected the manufacturing and automotive sectors (among others), and despite the associated innovative reticence seen in so many companies, xSuite was able to report positive business development for 2021. "Demonstrating a progressive readiness to digitalize commercial business processes is key to remaining viable as a company," explains CEO Matthias Lemenkühler, "We therefore certainly had our work cut out for us last financial year."
With more and more AP processes set to be transferred to the cloud (e.g., the SAP Business Technology Platform), xSuite Group has been following a cloud-first strategy, gearing its product development activities accordingly and incorporating artificial intelligence into its products. Over the medium term, more and more SAP user companies are set to switch to the new SAP S/4HANA product generation and, as a result, to move to the cloud. Offering SAP certifications for all its solutions, xSuite allows its clients to choose their preferred cloud model; it also offers software for SAP's various deployment models, even for clients still working with the on-premises operating model. xSuite is currently working on numerous extensions and enhancements for 2022, which are set to affect not only invoice processing and delivery bills, but also the Business Partner Portal. This portal, which runs on the SAP Business Technology Platform, maps the entire procure-to-pay process with suppliers.
