apsolut is a leading development partner for integrating SAP S/4HANA for Central Procurement with third-party ERP systems
With the release 1909 of SAP S/4HANA for Central Procurement, SAP is supporting the purchase requisition integration of third-party (non-SAP) ERP systems. SAP S/4HANA for Central Procurement is SAP’s go-to solution for customers operating a central procurement organization with multiple ERP systems, and, until now, the solution only worked in connection with SAP ERP back-end systems.
apsolut and SAP collaborated intensively in the recent development cycle to create the third-party interfaces. “apsolut’s 360-degree view of procurement implementations and their experience with complex back-end architectures allowed our teams to collaborate effectively and deliver the non-SAP interfaces,” says Salvatore Lombardo, Head of SAP S/4HANA Source to Pay & Order to Cash.
SAP S/4HANA for central procurement offers several benefits when compared to a decentralized procurement architecture:
- Centralized control and compliance
- Decentral execution without disruption
- Reduced costs by centering transactions – support of a shared service center approach
- Better pricing through leveraged spend
- Greater visibility into purchasing decisions through central approval
- Streamlined administration of approval workflows
- Comprehensive and central spend analysis
SAP provides maintenance for SAP Supplier Relationship Management (SAP SRM) until 2025. By then, customers will need to have moved to a future-proof procurement solution.
