Harness the power of in-memory computing to streamline and integrate processes across your organisation with S/4HANA next-generation ERP solution.

 

Finance

Enhance financial planning and analysis
Accelerate planning cycles, increase profitability, and make finance functions more efficient. You can also run on-the-fly financial analysis at any level of granularity and support ad hoc simulations of organisational changes or new business models directly within your ERP system.

Simplify accounting and financial close processes
Combine financial and management accounting and profitability data into a single universal journal, for a single source of truth. You can close the books in real time, improve compliance and control, and reduce closing effort, while running drilling down on reports by any dimension.

Improve treasury and financial risk processes
Integrate cash flows, transactions, commodity positions, and market data, and accurately forecast cash flow, manage liquidity, and mitigate risk. In addition, full-view and real-time analysis, audit trails, and compliance reporting help you optimise straight-through processing.

Support collaborative finance operations
Automate receivables and payables processing and streamline shared services delivery. You can improve working capital and financial health with real-time data to assess customer credit risk, streamline billing, resolve disputes, and prioritize customer collections to reduce days sales outstanding.

Manage enterprise risk and compliance effectively
Integrate and automate risk, compliance, and international trade activities to proactively minimise risk and compliance violations and detect, investigate, and deter fraud. In this way, you can optimise business operations, protect assets, and improve financial performance.

 

Digital Supply Chain

Integrate inventory and logistics processes
Lower operational and administrative costs by integrating the management of all inbound and outbound freight and warehousing processes, and improving connectivity with warehouse automation equipment and logistics service providers

Improve production planning
Coordinate manufacturing operations across your organisation including material requirements, logistics, and receipts for proper material handling, work in process, and inventory. You can also make plan adjustments based on real-time information from the enterprise, suppliers, and the plant floor.

Support complex assembly processes
Enable efficient planning for complex assembly including material requirements, production, and capacity planning, as well as advanced functionality for bills of material (BOM), routing, factory layout, and machine models.

Accelerate manufacturing workflows
Plan and schedule maintenance tasks synchronising labour, material, equipment and schedules. Execute planned and unplanned maintenance to ensure optimal operations including improved safety and environmental impact.

Enable efficient maintenance management
Improve planned and unplanned maintenance operations, while optimising safety and environmental impacts, by planning and scheduling maintenance tasks to synchronise labour, materials, equipment, and schedules.

Enhance quality management
Run enterprise-wide, closed-loop quality management processes – from quality planning to quality operations – for continuing process improvement.

 

Research and Development

Improve project control and product development
Manage, translate, and integrate customer-driven innovations to optimise project efficiency and deliver high-quality projects on time and within scope. You can enhance quality by defining all design requirements and constraints while maintaining rigorous design standards.

Manage enterprise projects effectively
Invest in the right projects by aligning your project portfolio with enterprise strategy. You can identify the projects that can generate the most business value and manage the resources, schedule, and financial performance for each project phase, from initiation through closure.

Streamline product lifecycle management
Simplify and accelerate the transition of engineering master data into manufacturing production data. You can develop recipes and formulas rapidly, reuse existing ingredients, and design packaging and labelling in a single, high-performance environment.

Speed up product engineering processes
Accelerate time to market through efficient BOM management, including the specification of work centre details and listing of required production resources and tools. In addition, you can develop closed-loop inspection planning to comply with industry standards such as ISO/TS 16949 and ISO 9000.

 

Sourcing and Procurement

Gain in-depth purchasing insights
Acquire extensive, real-time information on purchasing spend by analysing purchase orders, purchase requisitions, invoices, and contracts. You can also evaluate supplier performance in real time with access to data, including on-time delivery, price, and quantity accuracy.

Streamline operational purchasing
Enable employees to purchase goods and services directly, following purchasing policies and pricing agreements and using preferred suppliers. Users can bundle demands, automate sourcing and order processing, and make approval and release procedures easier.

Automate sourcing and contract management processes
Collect, assign, analyse, and access all sourcing information in one system and support automated and manual processes for creating and managing service contracts, source lists, purchase information records, quotations, and requests for quotations.

Gain an in-depth view of your supply chain
Improve supply chain visibility to find the optimal mix of suppliers that will best serve your business objectives and reduce overall supply risk. You can also classify and segment your suppliers using multiple criteria to identify and pinpoint the right supply chain partners for your organisation.

Simplify procurement processes
Consolidate requisitioning to reduce costs by establishing one central approval workflow instead of multiple approvals in each back-end system. In addition, you can increase catalogue usage by offering a single, convenient access point across all available catalogs.

Manage commodity procurement effectively
Support commodity procurement and help create commodity contracts based on market quotes. You can automate price calculations, streamline invoicing, and extend ERP functionality to automate commodity-based contractual pricing and enable provisional, differential, and final invoicing.
