Procurement of capital goods

Transparency in planning and budgeting processes – Control in all project phases

Awarding decisions are of great importance considering the long life cycle and mostly high financial costs of capital goods. Early coordination of operational and strategic content between the specialist department and purchasing helps to ensure savings potential and compliance. Via FUTURA, not only planners, purchasers and site managers, but also bidders and suppliers are integrated online into tendering and billing processes. Only the bridge between technical and commercial workflows enables an active control function via SAP as the “leading system”.

Planning and budgeting

The planning and budgeting of investment projects often takes place in different systems. While an AVA tool is used for planning, the budget values are entered in ERP systems like SAP, in order to enable a comprehensive financial controlling. FUTURA connects both worlds and creates the basis for a consistent planning and processing of investment projects.

Awarding and compliance

Compliance can only be achieved by means of transparency in the awarding of contracts and billing. “Who, When, What”, this simple formula implies that, on the one hand, it is documented who initiated and executed a process and when, on the other hand, the service to be provided must be described in detail to ensure a transparent billing. The FUTURA platform fulfils these requirements and enables the SAP system to bill even complex services transparently.

Reporting and controlling

Without data, there is no controlling and reporting. The controlling department can only settle purchase commitments and create current reports if all relevant documents are posted promptly in the SAP system. FUTURA “feeds” SAP as the leading system with all necessary data, so that real-time evaluations in SAP or more advanced analysis tools are possible.
