Default risk is of central importance in the finance department, as a payment or receivables default is associated with financial losses and, in the worst case, can lead to payment difficulties. Credit management supports your company in determining the risk of bad debt losses vis-à-vis your business partners at an early stage and in making credit decisions efficiently and, in some cases, automatically. With the introduction of the new Credit Management in Financial Supply Chain Management (FIN-FSCM-CR), data from the Accounts Receivable (FI-AR) and Sales and Distribution (SD) components is collected and made available to the user in real time via the interface of the new Credit Management. This is a comprehensively integrated and cross-system application.
The new credit management in S/4HANA provides a comprehensive picture of the business partner and the risk of default that can be expected. It also enables an automated check of creditworthiness at order entry and at the time of goods issue. Due to the highly integrated solution, bad debt losses can be reduced in the new credit management and business partners can be evaluated faster and more reliably.
