From goods receipt to material requirements planning to inventory control: Optimize your processes for procurement with SAP Business One Purchasing.
Managing complex purchasing processes requires comprehensive integration into all relevant business processes, centrally processed data and consistent real-time transparency.
Available as an on-premise installation or cloud service, SAP Business One Purchasing provides small and midsize companies with comprehensive procurement management capabilities. It helps optimize and streamline the entire procurement process, enabling your business to work faster and more efficiently.
From analyzing requirements for materials, to requesting and ordering from suppliers, to paying the invoice. Conveniently manage documents digitally via the ERP system for an optimized purchasing and procurement process.
With SAP Warehouse Management, you centrally control your stocks in the warehouse, track inventory movements and manage production orders based on your material requirements planning via the PPS system. Your purchasing staff is always informed about requirements and current stocks.
Your core suppliers can also receive orders linked to contracts automatically - cyclically, or as soon as stock levels in the warehouse fall. Such routine tasks tie up valuable resources. This makes operational purchasing & procurement processes even more efficient.
Initiate the purchasing process with an internal order request in the SAP Purchasing menu in order to generate supplier enquiries and/or purchase orders from it. This is possible both from the document and from a report. With the creation assistant for supplier requests, you can create several supplier requests at the same time, based on articles or purchase requisitions.
In addition, the requisition report gives the requisitioner an overview of the various requisitions that have been created in the company. If desired, the user is informed by e-mail or optionally via the internal messanger as soon as a purchase order is created with the supplier, based on the associated order request.
Link your current goods receipts with the purchase order and keep an eye on your incoming invoice with SAP Business One for Purchasing and Procurement Processes!
Landed costs such as freight, customs, insurance, etc. can be assigned to the FOB costs ((Free on Board) of different items at any time. This allows you to quickly calculate the purchase price with SAP Business One for Purchasing. The actual stock value of your goods is automatically updated by the system.
SAP Business One Purchasing supports you with common processes for returns, special issues and ancillary costs incurred in the management of procurement processes.
Material requirements planning is an important aspect of strategic procurement. Since the demand for materials should be covered at all times in order to avoid failures, an up-to-date overview of the materials in the warehouse is just as important as the strategic planning of the demand.
With the help of intelligent material requirements planning (MRP) in the SAP Purchasing module, you replace error-prone ad-hoc solutions with structured planning processes. And all this on the basis of existing bills of materials, stock data, entries from scheduled production orders and purchase orders, as well as requirements data from actual orders and order forecasts.
With SAP Business One Purchasing's order recommendation, you can overview, order and optimise procurements. Through reliable forecast calculations, the function calculates the demand for future purchasing.
Through the integrated inventory control in SAP Purchasing, you manage item master data, serial numbers and price lists, define alternative items, increase or decrease inventories, carry out periodic stocktaking and generate picking lists for open sales orders - and all this on the go with the application for smartphone and tablet. Through extensive drill-down options and interlocked databases, they filter as needed, for example, customer or item master data, as well as by source documents.
