Long gone are the times in which the procurement of indirect goods was not in the focus of the enterprises. User-friendly, "Amazon-like", automated, compliant - just a few of the bullet points that an indirect procurement process should fulfill today. This is exactly what SAP is now implementing with SAP Sourcing & Procurement:
While creating purchase requisitions in SAP ERP (MM) was still a complicated matter, SAP now uses three Fiori apps to satisfy every user group.
SAP can also create contracts, tenders, reservations or purchase orders directly from purchase requisitions and assign sources of supply with just one Fiori App: "Manage Purchase Requisitions"
The new service processing "LeanServices" offers considerable advantages over the previous SAP service processing:
The procurement of direct material can be processed both via individual orders and via scheduling agreements. Both variants continue to support subcontracting and consignment.

Sourcing through the planning run without source list is now possible.
The following search logic is used by the MRP:
Scheduling agreements can now also be created using Fiori apps. Approval can be carried out using the new flexible Workflow
Rebate processing in SAP is carried out via condition contracts. Bonuses can be individually customized according to the requirements of the company. Through your integrated monitoring, the achievement of bonuses can be tracked by the buyer and then be passed on to the supplier via settlement documents.
Strategic purchasers are now also finding their way more and more into S/4HANA.
Within inventory management you can record and display your physical stocks. In addition, inventory changes are updated on both a quantity and value basis.
