Increased efficiency and automation in S / 4HANA.

SAP is the leading ERP software in German-speaking countries - but many users are not familiar enough with the possible uses in treasury. In cash management and payment transactions, too, SAP offers powerful functions to simplify and automate daily work processes. With SAP S / 4HANA, the Cash Management module has been significantly improved: Bank accounts can now be managed quickly and transparently and the daily financial status can be created automatically. With just a few clicks you can analyze aggregated reports down to the line items.

You will also learn how payment transaction activities can be centrally integrated in SAP. We explain the advantages and disadvantages of different bank connection solutions and what effects it has when the payment formats are converted to ISO20022. In addition to external payment transactions, we also deal with internal group payments: We show you how you can reconcile and offset intercompany payments with SAP. With the implementation of payments on behalf, your system becomes the central hub for international payments.
We will show you all of the seminar content live in S / 4HANA, but we will also look at the previous mapping in R / 3 (ECC 6.0) and the differences. Since many functions are already available in R / 3, we will show you what you can implement today and use later in S / 4HANA.

For the right treasury strategy in times of the transition from R / 3 to S / 4HANA, we recommend our seminar "SAP: S / 4HANA - what you need to know in treasury".

Main topics:

• New models briefly explained: SAP Cloud Platform (connection to the outside world), SAP Analytics Cloud (new approach to reporting and planning) and SAP Leonardo (Machine Learning).

Payment transactions - from payment runs to direct bank communication with SAP:
• How can an integrated payment transaction platform with approval processes be implemented in SAP?
