BDEx BPEM Closure ControlControl and automate BPEM closure in SAP
In an SAP Utilities system it’s a common mistake to close a BPEM exception when the problem isn’t fully resolved. This can leave hidden errors in your SAP system, that become a risk to both revenue and customer satisfaction.
With BPEM Closure Control you can positively adjust your agents’ working practices and begin to improve your exception management performance, reduce complaints and reduce trapped cash.
It provides an easy way to configure rules so that BPEM exception cases are only closed when the relevant underlying issues are resolved, requiring no code just simple configuration.
BPEM Closure Control understands the link between BPEM cases and their underlying root cause, and makes it possible to automatically close cases where the root cause has already been rectified. Without BPEM Closure Control this is a laborious manual job. With BPEM Closure Control, it becomes a push-over.
Key Product Features
Improve exception management, reduce complaints and release trapped cash.
- Enforces a link to the underlying problem ensuring that the correct cases stay open and obsolete ones are closed automatically
- Can cleanse BPEM cases that are no longer relevant and close them automatically with zero human intervention
- BPEM Closure Control offers an easy way to configure rules so cases are only closed when relevant underlying issues are resolved
- Can be scheduled to run as frequently as required or on an ad hoc basis
- Save valuable time enabling priority cases to be focused upon instead of searching through exceptions unnecessarily
BDEx ConnectSimple integration of SAP IS-U with external systems
BDEx Connect provides a library of preconfigured web services that can be used to fetch a variety of data from your SAP IS-U billing system, into any web enabled system of your choice. This enables the simple integration of SAP IS-U with external systems through an easy to consume OData service.

With BDEx Connect, common questions such as:
- ‘What open work needs to be resolved for this Customer?’

- ‘What was the last bill sent to the Customer?’
become simple HTTP requests instead, and can be resolved instantly.
