SAP SRM Solution Architects
Procurement departments must face down new challenges as purchasing evolves from the humble ordering office of the past into a strategic interface between internal and external partners. Global procurement markets and increasingly interconnected supplier relationships necessitate a realignment of strategic purchasing.
System-based mapping of strategic process flows and their integration into operational process flows in purchasing currently tend to be implemented inadequately, if at all. The software solutions on the market today are only capable of mapping a subset of a company's functional requirements in an integrated solution for strategic supplier management. R3 Services is closing these gaps with solution modules from our Strategic Supplier Management solution (SSM), which have been designed on the basis of the latest SAP technology (e.g. Web Dynpros and portal technology). Our solution can be seamlessly integrated into your ERP systems and other adjacent systems.
