Procure-to-Pay (Non-Stock) | SAP Business ByDesign
For companies seeking greater sourcing effectiveness and procurement efficiency, this process provides complete transparency to keep customer commitments. You can grow profits by building an integrated, demand-driven supply chain.
Procure-to-Pay – Scenario Description
The procure-to-pay (non-stock) business scenario allows you to purchase non-stock materials, such as office material, engineering sample material, or fixed assets. These scenarios triggered by,
- Employees or assistants who create shopping carts
- Project teams who need non-stock materials for projects
- Buyers directly through purchase orders or requests for quotation (RFQ)
- Accounts payable accountants in supplier invoices
Deliveries can be confirmed centrally or remotely. Costs for project-related non-stock materials – directly transferred to project tasks in financial accounting. If a catalogue, purchasing contract, or list price for a non-stock material exists, a purchase order can be created automatically. If no source of supply exists, you can send RFQs to determine appropriate suppliers. With this scenario, you can also order non-stock materials to cover customer demands by using sales orders or service orders to trigger a third-party procurement.
- Automated sourcing and purchase order creation can be tailored to your business.
- Automated invoice verification means user interaction – only needed for exception handling.
- Workload monitoring and reporting drive process transparency supported by spend analytics.
- Integrated SAP Interactive Forms software provides collaboration support.
- Payments to suppliers – highly automated to achieve the highest possible payment discounts, taking the current liquidity situation into consideration.
- Built-in analytics enable the purchasing department to supervise the full supplier lifecycle by monitoring the supplier base.
