Automation of new ledger accounts
in Sage Business Cloud Accounting
With ElectroNeek Sage built an RPA bot that helped quickly and effectively transfer data from clients’ charts of accounts into Sage Business Cloud Accounting, accelerating the customer onboarding process from several hours to minutes.
Sage is a multinational enterprise software company and the market leader for integrated accounting, payroll, and payment systems.
Sage has 13,000 employees and serves over three million customers in 23 countries across mainland Europe, Africa, Australia, Asia, and Latin America. In 2018, Sage launched Sage Business Cloud.
Sage offers a corporate system called Sage Business Cloud Accounting (SBCA). Onboarding new users into the SBCA system may require accountants to manually enter data siloed in spreadsheets, scans, and multiple accounting software, such as uploading ledger accounts stored in an Excel file. The task was time-consuming and often caused operational inefficiencies, increasing the cost of onboarding or switching to SBCA from other, less robust accounting systems.
Customer onboarding process accelerated up to 25 times within the ledger of accounts data processing automation
ElectroNeek and Sage built an RPA bot that helped quickly and effectively onboard the clients’ charts of accounts. The bot cleaned up the default charts of accounts that usually come with the new companies’ systems and output the ledger account data from a template Excel file to the individual ledger account fields in SBCA increasing the cost of onboarding or switching to SBCA from other, less robust accounting systems.
Typically, it can take quite a long time if you do that manually, like several hours. With bots, it takes several minutes.
01 A user launches a bot
02 The bot opens the browser window and logins into the system
03 The bot goes to the Settings section
04 The bot opens Chart of Accounts
05 The bot will deactivate/cleans up the standard default Chart of Accounts
06 The bot starts processing the relevant new Ledger Account data from a template Excel file to the individual ledger account fields in SBCA
07 The bot confirms that all entries are trasferred and finishes the task
An employee only launches the bot and verifies the relevance of data entries upon completion of automated tasks.
15-25x decrease in the data processing time from ledger accounts into SBCA
Customer onboarding cycle reduced by 50%
Error rate reduced to 0
