Document Scanner App for IOS and Android


Just want to ask if SAP has it's own document scanning app ( pdf format) or is there an app available in itunes or play that SAP is allowing us to use to scan SAP documents? I belong to the GCO sales org and every quarter end one of the problems we encounter is having to wait for the physical document to get here in the office before we can scan it and only then will we be able to move on to the next process. This is time consuming considering the traffic situation here in the Philippines.

Don't know if I'm on the right community page/discussion, if not, appreciate any input where I can post this question.

Thank you.

    You may want to ask on the Fiori space. In the SAP Mobile Platform SDK, Kapsel provides access to the mobile device hardware (such as the camera) through Cordova, but in itself does not contain a prebuilt application. You can see that feature here

    Hi Nina,

    Please explain the business process.

    I see it is a business process design issue rather than just a tool issue.


    Who is the document owner? (supplier, ...)

    What is the document? (Invoice, ...)


    Who is the receiver? ( FI cleark, ..)

    What is a task after receiving it ? (Data input, ...)

    What is the transaction ?

    • Hi Nina,

      A simple and quick solution is using free scanning app or mobile camera.

      There are many free apps in the market.

      For the next step, you may want to have transaction integration. There are several options.

      + Image archive and workflow

      + BPM workflow

      + Using collaboration tool like Jam Integration

      + SAP Mobile documents integration

      and more..
