What is Fluid?
In a nutshell, Fluid is an innovation enabler for SAP-based purchasing, developed by apsolut.
- What if you always had access to the latest technological innovations for use in your purchasing processes?
- If you could automatically advertise your purchasing needs, and a bot with artificial intelligence (AI) could automatically negotiate prices?
- If you had material master data that was harmonised by AI, and requisitioners no longer had to worry about material groups or G/L accounts?
- What if all the software solutions you need for your work were linked and could communicate with each other?
- If you no longer needed to maintain duplicate data?
This is where the innovation enabler Fluid comes in!
Fluid is a platform developed by apsolut; it merges the various solutions your company uses into an overarching ecosystem in which processes can be automated and data is made available wherever it is needed. The innovation enabler Fluid connects the SAP system (SAP S/4HANA, SAP ECC, SAP Ariba) to our innovative partner solutions to provide out-of-the-box processes and integration.
Fluid operates on 3 levels:
Fluid knows the best way to connect your systems and solutions. It serves as a link between your solutions, guaranteeing the best possible flow of data.
What benefits does Fluid offer?
Fluid shows you ways to make your purchasing more innovative.
Our partner solutions operate in the following areas:
Fluid with SAP BTP
Innovation integration as a service
The Fluid platform is based on SAP BTP. SAP BTP allows Fluid to send data to SAP systems via a secure pathway thanks to the SAP Cloud Connector. There is no need for you to set up your own BTP infrastructure here. Fluid is operated as software as a service, or as we call it: innovation integration as a service. In fact, you won’t even notice that SAP BTP is behind it. Since we operate the platform as a service, support and maintenance for the platform are included in our monthly usage fee.
We ensure that the systems can communicate with each other, even if they have different interfaces.
Fluid with Squando
apsolut Squando is a supplier management solution developed especially for supplier onboarding, qualification and certificate management. There are already platforms that compile information about suppliers and make it available; Fluid can be used as a hub to connect these data sources to Squando, making supplier management more efficient. Fluid links Squando to external data sources, so Fluid can ensure that the figures from Integrity Next are also visible in Squando, for example.
