Optimized Purchasing Processes with SAP®

DirectPurchaseControl is a self-service request portal including connection of supplier catalogues completely integrated in SAP®.

Together with SAP® and Non-SAP® users in the specialist departments, the purchasing department can process the procurement of non-product related material, services or material investment more efficiently and transparently. Request and requirements of staff members are therefore already concretized and automatically captured.

Electronic workflows accelerate approval processes and replace form processes linked to paper and mail. A monitor in the web portal and in SAP® provides maximum transparency on the current state of all purchase requisitions and orders.

The common effects of maverick (or wild) buying are also significantly reduced by DirectPurchaseControl.

If IT-supported processes are confronted with paper...

Webportal

At an early stage, the complete staff is involved in the electronic process by the web portal. Consequently, requisitioners without access to the SAP®-GUI can also issue purchase requisitions paperlessly and follow their further status in the authorization process at any time.

All information for everyone involved in the process (requisitioner, approver, purchaser) is displayed transparently and clearly arranged at all times. The web portal can be adjusted to the corporate design without any problems. As far as security is concerned, access permissions can be defined depending on the target group. The login to the web portal is effected by single sign-on mechanisms.

Supplier Catalogues

Any number of supplier catalogues can be connected by the universal Open Catalogue Interface (OCI). An article access can be effected based on the roles assigned. Consequently, the requests and requirements of the coworkers and staff members are already concretized and will automatically be captured. The proportion of orders with PO reference will be increased significantly and bring synergy effects for the subsequent invoice receipt.

Rule Set / Workflow

By a rule set which is based on the roles assigned, DirectPurchaseControl controls the different steps within the process.

Electronic workflows accelerate the authorization process and shorten the processing time. All relevant changes and authorizations are consistently documented and archived as a workflow log.

Mobile Office with UI5 Technology

The processing of the purchase requisition is possible at any time and place whether with a smart phone, tablet, laptop or PC. The module Mobile of DirectPurchaseControl is independent and high-performing by the use of the established UI5 technology platform.

A mobile access allows the secure and simple participation in the process (create demand, concretize and authorize). Therefore, tasks can quickly be coped with on the go. This results in a significant process acceleration and a more efficient use for everyone involved.
