Project objective

For LPP SA, a dynamically developing company and the largest clothing manufacturer in Central and Eastern Europe, we created a solution integrating existing systems with an application for management and accounting of SAP Concur delegations. The company’s portfolio contains 5 of the most recognizable brands: Reserved, House, Cropp, Mohito and Sinsay, which can currently be found in 20 countries in Europe, Africa and Asia. The network of nearly 1,700 showrooms and online stores serves millions of customers annually.

The challenge

LPP came to us with the need to create a solution integrating the existing infrastructure of SAP HR, SAP FI, Sharepoint, Active Directory and an employee database with a system for handling, planning and accounting for SAP Concur delegations in the fields of:

  • handling business travel orders (Request)
  • travel planning (Travel)
  • Expense settlement (Expense)

An important goal for the client in this project was to improve the flow of employee data, accounting for the costs of delegations, currencies and importing of obtained data through the integration of SAP Concur with the client’s extensive infrastructure.

The company was also interested in easy maintenance and development of the application. This was achieved thanks to the use of integrative design patterns.

Detailed data analysis

The first of all, we had the very important task was to thoroughly analyze the source data used in the business process and create a Canonical Data Model (CDM) from them.

Designing the target architecture

The next step was to design the target architecture using CDM, the Channel Adapter Design pattern, and integrate with the client library used to capture and handle technical and business errors.

Implementation of flows

Next, we had to implement the necessary flows and required business logic. The developed integration flows were comprehensively tested internally and, after passing, the tests, they were implemented in the client’s test environment for verification. After both this and the acceptance of the entire scope, we conducted comprehensive customer acceptance tests.

Benefits

  • Data security and guaranteed system continuity (24/7) thanks to the application's operation in high availability (HA) mode
  • Ongoing access to current data thanks to automated cyclic loading and the ability to manually recover any archive data "on demand"
  • Automatic handling of all business and technical errors
  • Security of documents sent to the cloud owing to the encryption of files created in integration

Business results

  • Secure data transport to and from the SAP Concur system through the use of encrypted communication, as well as the encryption of sent and received files
  • Guarantee of data processing continuity between the client's infrastructure and the SAP Concur system
  • Comprehensive business and technical error handling and integration with a dedicated mechanism
  • Reduction of process handling time, planning and accounting of delegations
