Robobai launches new SAP Data Extractor capability
The first step in setting up an enhanced and enriched Spend Analytics platform starts with the extraction of the existing ERP data.
This process however can be challenging, time consuming and puts a heavy burden on client resources. Implementation can often be delayed while the Client’s Procurement and IT functions work together to extract, compile and arrange the data.
Robobai is committed to a quick and frictionless implementation for our customers and so has released its SAP Extractor capability – slashing the time and effort required to get up and running fast.
Robobai has created its extractor capability with code developed by SAP Gold Partner SoftwareOne. Robobai also adheres to Microsoft Gold Partner accreditation standards.

How the SAP Data Extraction Works
Routes are provided as source code, which are installed/compiled on the client-side environment and are delivered via an SFTP or file gateway.
Technical and install documents are included to enable IT/SAP support teams to effectively evaluate the modules.
Routines will work “out of the box” and can also be customized where required to address specific client environment customization or other automation.
When installed, the routines are easily accessible as SAP “Reports” with data selection screens that can be used to define the selection criteria and to produce the file outputs.
Each routine can be run independently and produces a flat file output aligned to the Robobai Spend Template and data requirements.
The routines are aligned with SAP version 6 and above.
Amid a backgrop of global uncertainty, and a mounting focus on ESG, one corporate commandment has become increasingly indisputable: investing in ethical procurement is not only a feel-good opportunity, but it can also mitigate critical business risk.
With increased transparency and obligations around payment times and practices of large businesses, it is critical that eligible entities have a thorough understanding of the requirements of the Payment Times Reporting Scheme (PTRS) to ensure they are meeting the reporting requirements on time!
