Depending on your business scenarios and the Basware systems you have in use, you will be using different Basware integrations to support your business. Here are the API and XML integrations typically used by our clients in some of the common business scenarios. 

It is possible to use API and XML integrations side by side. Generally this requires choosing the API or XML method per interface, i.e. using XML method for importing orders and API method for transferring invoices. 

Business scenarios:
Master data can also be maintained manually in P2P. However, customers usually prefer to import most of the the data using integrations.
