procurement and processing of services nothing should go past the SAP system,
in order to ensure transparency and control in the settlement process. But the
effort is enormous. Because in a number of orders each activity would have to
be entered manually as an activity record sheet in the SAP system so that all
services rendered can be traced back. It is therefore common practice for the
service provider to submit the activity record with his invoice on paper. The
invoice amount is then released and processed in the SAP system. Discrepancies
regarding the bill have to be discussed with the service provider by phone or
in writing, which is time consuming.
The SAP-integrated billing of services is easier - with greater transparency.
Futura Solutions put the verification of services rendered before the billing.
Thus, checking bills and correcting invoices becomes obsolete. In addition,
Futura® carries out the whole process of ordering and billing online. I.e.
service providers receive their orders via the Futura supplier portal and they
enter the services rendered online. They can do this from anywhere. An internet
connection is sufficient.
You can review the service entry reports of your supplier in Futura® and clarify
any necessary amendments online. The trick: Due to the SAP integration an activity
record sheet is created automatically in SAP after the services rendered have
been checked and released. This saves you a lot of effort. Instead of checking
whole invoices you only need to check the activity record sheet number the
vendor refers to in his billing.
If you wish to automate the process further, you can set up an automated
billing system in SAP, which creates a credit memo for the vendor on the basis
of the activity records you have released. The benefits: No more checking and
manual processing of invoices. Your billing process is even leaner and more
