SAP-based solution for legally compliant processing of electronic communications
Heidelberg, September 7th, 2021 – Harman, a global manufacturer of connected car technology, has high-volume invoice demand and requires robust and reliable partners to comply with local legal requirements. It can be multiple awarded products, such as the wireless speaker Harman Kardon Radiance 2400 or all-time classics, each invoice, credit and debit note must be validated by the Indian tax authority within a strict timeframe. 4,500 transactions must be processed every month. Errors are costly and not acceptable as they stop the sale process. In addition, constant legal changes make life difficult for those responsible.
Harman partnered with cbs E-Invoice World Cloud, an SAP-based cloud solution for legally compliant processing of electronic communications with public authorities. Together, cbs and HARMAN managed to tackle the Indian E-Invoicing legal requirements in a flexible and reliable manner despite having a tight legal deadline, constant short-term legal changes and an ongoing global pandemic.
Debby Powers, Senior Director of Digital – Global Functions, states: “The new solution ensures quality, performance and availability in data exchange. Technically and organizationally, we no longer need to reserve resources and can focus on our core processes. The cbs E-Invoice World Cloud is our all-round carefree package for the complex data exchange with the tax authorities.”
René Dokhany, Project Manager at cbs and E-Invoicing Subject Matter Expert, adds: “It was an extremely challenging project, which we mastered together with Harman despite an interim lockdown in India. The early and intensive test phase proved its worth. Shortly after the go-live, about 1,000 invoices were submitted through the implemented solution – and they all were immediately authorized by the tax authority. It was the perfect start! This proves: We are specialists for the end-to-end integration of legal requirements into digital processes from SAP ERP or S/4HANA to tax authorities.”
