Organizations introduce document automation into their SAP or hybrid environment to increase productivity & efficiency, to utilize the "Single Version of the Truth" data stored in SAP systems, and, most importantly, to mitigate risks associated with the creation and release of inaccurate documents for both internal and external communication. To achieve the desired outcomes while providing a high return on investment, it is essential that a document automation solution for SAP can be deployed rapidly, can scale easily, has low maintenance cost, allows easy importation of existing templates, and does not require high level IT skills for template design and administration.
ActiveDocs Opus can bring the benefits of document automation into your organization and leverage your investment into SAP.

Rapid deployment is essential for maximization of the benefits provided by any software solution, and it is particularly important in the SAP ecosystem. ActiveDocs Opus is the out-of-the-box document automation product that does not require expert level IT and SAP skills. Your existing templates can be imported and automated in the familiar environment of Microsoft Word.
Scalability is one of the crucial factors for reducing the risk associated with the deployment of any software solution. It makes it possible to use a staged deployment approach with reduced upfront costs and maintenance expenses. ActiveDocs Opus can be scaled-up or scaled-out to allow the organization to deploy it initially as a point solution, and to increase its utilization throughout other business areas without concerns about disruption of the production capability.
Microsoft's Open XML format is a globally accepted open standard for documents and templates. Utilization of this standardized document format protects the organization's existing investment in document automation. ActiveDocs Opus natively supports Open XML and most importantly it utilizes MS Word as the environment for editing and maintenance of automated templates. The familiar yet powerful interface of MS Word makes it easy to modify and maintain templates. It is not necessary to engage programmers or IT experts in template development. The power of ActiveDocs Opus Content Manager & Design Tools means that templates can be designed, edited, and managed, by business users independently of the IT department.
Reduction of the risk associated with creation of documents should be paramount in every document production solution. The template management and compliance auditing capabilities must provide a robust framework for traceability of changes, reporting on template usage, document delivery, and interaction with workflows. ActiveDocs Opus exceeds the compliance requirements for templates and documents in every size of enterprise, providing an unparalleled level of control over document-centric processes.
