Specialists of the Department of Information Technologies (DIT) of PJSC “Nizhnekamskneftekhim” have developed and implemented a software robot for the EP-600 complex under construction.
The software robot creates the necessary entries in the material directory and purchase orders in the corporate SAP ERP accounting system based on electronic packing lists and invoices received from partner companies for materials and equipment supplied for the construction of a new industrial facility. Data processing is fully automatic. In addition, the system generates a number of reports on relationships with contractors, registration of invoices and VAT invoices, on the status of customs procedures, on stocks of materials and equipment and their movement, etc.
To date, the share of purchase orders created by the software robot is 12%, and order items – 41% of the total number of all purchases made at PJSC “Nizhnekamskneftekhim”. According to DIT specialists, the share of orders created and processed by the software robot will increase. Thus, the implementation of the system made it possible to avoid a significant increase in the staff of the procurement service.
