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 client 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:
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 client was also interested in easy maintenance and development of the application. This was achieved thanks to the use of integrative design patterns.
The first very important task was to thoroughly analyze the source data used in the business process and create a Canonical Data Model (CDM) from them.
The next step was to design the target architecture using CDM, the Channel Adapter design pattern, and integration with the client library used to capture and handle technical and business errors.
The subsequent stage of work was related to the implementation of necessary flows implementing the 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 implementation and acceptance of the entire scope, we conducted comprehensive customer acceptance tests.
