Tendering and procurement

What is the scope of my worklist, how many quotations have already been submitted, what is the price ranking and do my budgets still fit? Your SAP Launchpad is the central control center. With that, you have everything under control. Using the FUTURA apps, you can assemble and create your tenders from the SAP Launchpad in real time, consult purchasing data, make decisions and take action. Be it a negotiation with your suppliers that is pending or questions from them need to be addressed.

Your specialist departments, e.g., maintenance staff, can generate call-offs from SAP with a reference to a contract. Whether planned services or unplanned services, your suppliers and service providers access these SAP contracts directly via the FUTURA Cloud in self-service and can settle independently.

Thanks to new technologies and the microservice architecture, new perspectives are opening up for SAP-based purchasing and procurement. Using a single source in SAP and operating via apps, e.g. from the SAP Launchpad, suppliers and service providers are directly connected and integrated into the business processes, and all this with an outstanding user experience.

FUTURA® Network

Quality before quantity. The integrated FUTURA Network connects purchasers and suppliers, enabling seamless procurement processes. With the further development towards a B2B network, we want to further increase the benefits of the FUTURA Network and intensify the focus for companies in the energy, real estate, infrastructure and industry sectors from the German-speaking countries. This will benefit purchasers as well as registered suppliers and service providers: In the future, suppliers will be able to publish their profile in the FUTURA Network to make themselves visible to other FUTURA customers – purchasers will thus have another channel to expand their purchasing market.

Industry 4.0 and faster development cycles make it necessary to react quickly both in planning and control, especially on the part of the purchaser. This puts the focus on the strategic transformation of operational purchasing organizations in industrial companies.

Energy Industry
Public utilities and energy utilities

The challenges posed by the energy transition are leading to a significant increase in investment projects for network capacities – and thus to an increase in procurement volumes. At the forefront of new purchasing strategies is the opportunity for closer cooperation between key technical and commercial departments “under one roof”.

Infrastructure
Industrial parks and infrastructure companies

Be it infrastructure projects in the fields of energy and transport or information and communication technology: in the expansion of roads, railways, waterways or broadband supply, the implementation of digital processes in procurement plays a decisive role in tracking down cost factors.

Real Estate
From maintenance to rehabilitation

Digitization and close internal and external networking are the prerequisites needed for purchasers to work strategically and reduce costs in the long term. The aim of facility management and real estate is to maintain and increase the benefits of a property throughout its entire life cycle and to reduce the costs.
