Approval processes in SAP®: Automate requisitions and purchase orders

You are here:

How automated do the usual business processes in your company actually run? Despite the use of SAP® and digital tools, there are form processes in purchasing and sales that are often still far from being part of a digitization strategy. Requirements and inquiries from employees are gladly processed past the system, especially when experience shows that the procurement process can drag on for weeks or even months. This behavior is so widespread that there is even a name for it: it is called the maverick buying effect.

With our DirectPurchaseControl add-on, we remove this stumbling block for you on the way to transparent ordering and payment processes. Completely integrated into SAP, the self-service requisition portal offers both SAP and non-SAP users the opportunity to handle the procurement of materials, services and C-items much more efficiently. By automating approval processes, you avoid long queues, so there is no longer any incentive to place orders bypassing the system.

Say goodbye to application slips once and for all and round off your IT-supported processes with our AddOn! Automating approval processes saves your employees time, allowing them to focus on more important tasks instead of dealing with intransparency, different filing locations or duplicate/unrecorded requests. With the help of DirectPurchase Control, requests can also be submitted via a web portal without access to the SAP GUI. The status of the request can be conveniently called up at any time.

Advantages at a glance:

  1. Paperless processing and traceable tracking of requisitions in SAP at any time
  2. Time-saving approval procedures, including substitute arrangements that shorten turnaround time
  3. Uniform database for all users
  4. Single sign-on enabled web portal (customizable via CSS)
  5. Integration of online stores, databases, catalogs
  6. Avoidance of Maverick Buying
  7. Splitting or merging of requisitions
