Why iBill & SAP Integration

  • Increase transparency for Customer/ Facility & Finance Team
  • Real-time update & Notification to Customer of Payments/ Bills.
  • Delegation & Control to Facility Team with real-time data availability.
  • Increase effectiveness in System as SOA/ Ledger  etc. available to Facility & Customer on their Mobile App
  • Less Error-Prone – Backend updated automatically without any human intervention.

SAP Integration-Strategy

Below Fields of SAP mapped in iBill so that both System can synch: 

    • SAP / Customer Code –Against the Unit in iBill.
    • Charge Head (like – CAM, ELE) and their respective GL Codes –Against the Charges in ISM
    • Tax Code  and their respective GL Codes – Against the Tax at Charge Level in ISM
    • Bill Plan– Against the Bill Type in iBill – like Electricity, Maintenance etc.
    • Site Id – Against the Society in ISM
    • Company CodeUnique Entity Code in SAP

REST Webservices with Security Key decided as Communication Protocol between two Systems with request/response in JSON format.

SAP Integration Approach

So far 2 Approaches:

  1.  Complete Control at iBill( iBill) i.e. Invoice generation and Payment entries in iBill & SAP consuming (Pulling)  the payments, debit & credit notes/ bills generated in iBill.This is most preferred one
  2. Invoice generated in SAP & pulled by iBill. Payment Transaction ( Debit & Credit Notes) generated in iBill and consumed by SAP.

In both cases Unit Master Data is imported from SAP in xls and updated in iBill . No update moves back to SAP in Unit Details automatically.
