SAP Digital Supplier Network
Leverage your investment in SAP ERP for all of your supplier collaboration activities
Automate Commerce to Connect with Suppliers
In a digital economy, moving from paper to electronic processing can expedite delivery of compliant purchase orders (POs), help eliminate invoice errors, speed invoice approvals, and improve on-time payment performance. Top performers are also extending e-commerce capabilities to enforce compliance for all spending, increase cash earnings, and optimise their working capital.
That’s why more organisations are turning to commerce automation over the SAP Digital Supplier Network (DSN) to connect with suppliers and manage POs, invoices, and payments. As the world’s largest business network, DSN connects buyers with all their suppliers regardless of size, location, or technical sophistication. It has made cloud-based commerce as easy for businesses as it is for consumers.
Leverage the power of the SAP Digital Supplier Network
With DSN, buyers and suppliers can transact at Internet speed to process invoices for all spending: indirect, direct, and services, as well as PO and non-PO invoices. Buyers can consolidate the processing of paper and electronic invoices and achieve “perfect payables” through their suppliers’ use of the PO-Flip feature. With the PDF invoice feature, suppliers can submit digital PDF invoices to the network, which are then converted to legal e-invoices to submit to buyers.
DSN also supports more complex invoice processing scenarios. For example, suppliers can generate invoices from service entry sheets to simplify the processing of invoices for complex services. Buyers can trigger self-billing using an evaluated receipt settlement (ERS) from a goods receipt. Buyers can time payments to optimise their cash and working capital, while suppliers gain realtime views into payment status and early-payment options to improve their cash flow.
