In my previous blog post I’ve described how to Finalise Decision (Introduction to SAP Social Services Solution – Part V)
In this last blog, I would explain the functionality around the last basic step “Execute Payment”.
5- Execute Payment:
This is a technical process which transfers the Planned Payments to Accounting and is a mass-process which can be triggered at any defined time interval:
- SAP delivers a pre-defined integration to SAP Public Sector Collection & Disbursement (PS-CD which is based on FI-CA).
- Another Accounting / Payment system can be integrated.
After transfer “Net Payment” information to accounting, system create accounting document and execute payments. SAP Collection & Disbursement uses Billing and Invoicing to process the Planned Payments from Social Service Management and create the Accounting Documents. An Accounting Documents represent any type of financial posting that is required to the Client Account.
Finally SAP Collection & Disbursement execute the payment instructions using mass-processing (Payment runs). These can be defined to select open items fitting different criteria:
- Payment Methods
- Due Dates
Finally, the system sends the due planned payment using the payment methods stored on the client.
As we have seen, SAP supports all basic steps involved in processing “Social Benefits” for public agencies. Solution is supported with the following software SAP CRM, SAP BRF+ and SAP PSCD.
