TOP Topic Digitization – How easy it is to speed up your approval processes

SAP Approval Procedures – The rapid and comprehensive digitization of SAP approval processes offers a lot of potential to significantly accelerate approval procedures.

In practice, however, many documents are printed out as part of approval procedures. Because you need a signature. In most cases, this is still done by hand. Paper-bound approval processes take a lot of time and resources. Documents are delayed after signing to the nearest competent body. Important deadlines and deadlines pass, efficiency decreases and archiving costs are high. In other cases, the releases take place via manual notification of those responsible by e-mail. The processing and release state is not available in SAP. The operation is non-transparent.

The switch from the classic signature folder to the electronic version directly in the SAP system offers considerable advantages.

With our add-on, the approval process is completely digital without media breakage. The SAP document passes through several processing instances and is released by the responsible persons one after the other directly in the SAP system.

Application example Release Sales

How do the release procedures work?

Before you can start setting up distribution procedures, you must define the rules that apply in your company. For implementation, it can be useful to present the rulebook in table form.

Suppose that in a company, order confirmations for customer orders must be released before shipping to the customer. For sales orders of order type TA and ZTA up to a value of 10,000 €, it is sufficient for a colleague from the Processing team to review and release the task. This must not be the same colleague who recorded the order. In the case of order confirmations up to €50,000, the team leader must also release the clerk. If the sales order has a value of more than 50,000 € is additionally necessary for approval by the management.

This results in the following release matrix:

Necessary Settings – This matrix is then used to set up the Sales or Purchase release procedures. Both the hierarchy of users who release documents within the approval process, as well as the amount limits and other characteristics are maintained in the system before the application is used. The complexity of the release, whether single-level or multi-level, depends on your needs.

You make the corresponding settings in Customizing as well as in the application. You get a complete solution without having to program anything individual. Simply download, set up and start.

Notification system – After an SAP document has been entered or modified, a process is forwarded to the responsible contact persons. Notification by e-mail or APP is used to ensure the approval process. Users who are to approve a document are notified when a document is pending release. In the e-mail notification you will find a direct link to the documents to be released. You can jump directly into the application and initiate the share. These notification components are sold separately.

Release – The release takes place for SAP GUI, SAP Fiori transactions or via the mobile APP. The selection of the relevant operations is done with the appropriate key / code and group, which is maintained in the authorizations for the respective user.
