Keep it simple – making SAP-integrated tendering and purchasing really simple

Heterogeneous purchasing and procurement processes continue to shape everyday work in SAP S/4HANA – even the Ariba cloud solutions have not changed this substantially. Flexibility beyond the narrowly defined SAP standard scenarios can only be maintained with media discontinuities. This is exactly where we step in with the FUTURA Cloud in combination with a user-friendly app concept. This is exactly where FUTURA Cloud in combination with a user-friendly app concept steps in.

More simple workflows

The FUTURA Cloud offers a single sign-on to SAP S/4 – no multiple logins, which makes it even easier to work because there are no systems to change on the front end.

Reduced training time

Users only see what they need for their tasks within an app – this increases efficiency and simplifies work, and the training effort is therefore extremely low.

Integrated Supplier Network

Search within familiar suppliers in SAP – and easily find new suppliers in the connected FUTURA Supplier Network with access to over 60,000 suppliers.

"Keep it simple" means tendering and purchasing from one interface without changing systems and identical process flows, regardless of the source of reference in SAP. Your SAP Launchpad becomes the central purchasing hub for all your purchasing and procurement activities.

Overview app concept for sourcing

FUTURA Apps bring the entire functional world of FUTURA Cloud to your SAP Launchpad. You can process all requisitions, from materials and services or lean services through to complex services, from within SAP – or alternatively via the FUTURA Buyer application.

Different sources of reference – same interface

Purchase requisitions, contracts, material master files: It doesn’t matter in which source you search – the interface is always the same. And thanks to the FUTURA Apps, all can be accessed directly from your launchpad.

Transfer items to shopping cart

With flexible filter options, you retain a complete overview even when dealing with extensive lists. You can simply add the required items to the shopping cart.

Start the tender in the same work step

Immediately afterwards, a wizard guides you to the tender in four steps. You add the tender texts, assign the favored suppliers, and start. That’s it!

FUTURA App Sourcing Monitor

No matter from which source you have initiated the tenders, the FUTURA App “Tender Monitor” contains all the information about them. You can monitor the status of the tenders and observe which suppliers have already submitted bids. In addition to making changes to a tender – communication with the suppliers also takes place via FUTURA Cloud. This means that you not only have all your tenders at a glance, but you also have all activities documented in an audit-proof manner.

FUTURA App Quotations & Negotiation

The FUTURA App ” Quotations & Negotiation” is the central tool of the purchasing department. Here you have a central overview of all tenders and can access completed tenders in order to negotiate with your suppliers. First, you evaluate your suppliers’ quotations in the price comparison list. Set up the price comparison list as you need it. Modify the tenders to adapt to the market situation and get the best prices. Start more rounds of tenders and conduct negotiations with your suppliers. Finally, create purchase orders and/or contracts in SAP by using the FUTURA app.

FUTURA App Order Monitor

Orders or call-offs released in SAP can be processed by the supplier or service provider in his portal. E.g., change delivery dates and the order quantity in relation to the requested delivery date. You first view the order confirmation with the possible changes via the FUTURA app “Order Monitor”. You can now react to the changes and delivery dates, and you trigger the order change in SAP by using the FUTURA App.
