The procurement of materials consists of a complex process with five individual steps – from the purchase requisition (BANF) to the payment (Purchase to Pay/P2P). The illustration shows the process in its individual components.
Doesn’t look that complex? Consider that the individual sub-processes include incoming documents such as orders, delivery notes and invoices. These have to be processed and released – by different employees, in different departments.
Although SAP offers initial solutions for some sub-steps, the procurement process is not considered in its entirety. Individual procedures are not linked to a continuous process. Media discontinuities are pre-programmed.
Rely on a holistic purchase-to-pay process with SAP.
These stumbling blocks ultimately have a negative impact not only on employee satisfaction, but also on the company’s profits. Advantages are left lying around. Advantages that your competitors have already secured. You too can benefit from the advantages of an optimised P2P process with a document management system in conjunction with SAP.
