BDEx BPEM Closure Control

Control and automate BPEM closure in SAP

In a SAP Utilities system it's a common mistake to close a BPEM exception when the problem isn't fully resolved, this can leave hidden errors in your SAP system, that become a risk to both revenue and customer satisfaction.

With BPEM Closure Control you can positively adjust your agents’ working practices and begin to improve your exception management performance, reduce complaints and reduce trapped cash.

It provides an easy way to configure rules so that BPEM exception cases are only closed when the relevant underlying issues are resolved, requiring no code just simple configuration.

BPEM Closure Control understands the link between BPEM cases and their underlying root cause, and makes it possible to automatically close cases where the root cause has already been rectified. Without BPEM Closure Control this is a laborious manual job. With BPEM Closure Control, it becomes a push-over.

  • BPEM Closure Control offers an easy way to configure rules, with configurable pop-ups when an agent tries to close a case, so BPEM cases are only closed when relevant underlying issues are resolved
