SAP S/4HANA Sourcing & Procurement

Procurement in a modern app layout

SAP S/4HANA Procurement provides all important functions that are necessary for handling all internal purchasing processes. The well-known and still existing functions of the ERP Material Management Module (SAP MM) have been supplemented by a modern user interface with numerous SAP Fiori apps. As a result, the user can process a constantly growing number of documents relevant to purchasing with intuitive apps. This includes, for example, the entire request process. Furthermore, catalogues can be used and free text requests can be addressed to the purchasing department. Of course, an approval process rounds off the solution package.

In addition to the transactional apps, the work of purchasers is supplemented by a variety of analytic apps in S/4HANA, so that the most important KPIs always remain in the processor's view and critical issues can be processed with high priority.

The next releases will also further improve centralized purchasing across multiple ERP backend systems. The Central Procurement feature enables central contracts and processing of decentralized purchasing documents.

Varied sourcing solutions

apsolut offers various approaches for efficient supplier management with S/4:

  • The functions contained within SAP S/4HANA Sourcing & Procurement are particularly attractive for medium-sized companies.
  • For those companies that want to access the world's largest marketplace, the Ariba Network, an Ariba integration makes sense, for example via the SAP Ariba Supplier Lifecycle and Performance module.
  • Companies that want to use the familiar functions from SAP SLC & SAP SUS directly in SAP S/4HANA are advised to use the apsolut Supplier Cockpit

Strategic contract management with flexible design

Utilising SAP S/4HANA Sourcing & Procurement, companies can also align their contract management in a future-oriented, flexible and strategic manner. Both PC and mobile can control simple and complex processes. The intuitive and individually configurable SAP Fiori user interface in combination with the extensive search function leads to simple operability and short onboarding processes.

The ability to provide your own contract types and templates and to set up company-specific approval workflows creates the basis for reducing process runtimes in contract creation and maintenance. Automatic notifications for expiring contracts help to optimize costs.

Due to the high degree of integration into existing ERP or third party systems, complete contract lifecycles can be mapped transparently and contracts can be used as sources of supply for purchase requisitions, purchase orders and invoices or transferred to catalogs via upload.
