The Informatica Procurement application lets you quickly and cost-efficiently procure products and services, easily integrate suppliers, and adopt supplier catalogs into your procurement system.
Procurement is deeply integrated with SAP ERP and supplier relationship management (SRM) systems—as well as other ERP systems—to deliver a single point of search for purchasing. With fast item entry and collective entry, creation and uploading of shopping cart lists and templates, and a search function embedded in shopping lists, Procurement drastically shortens your ordering processes.
Incorporating trends from the B2C arena into the new GUI design, our goal is to make the application as accessible as possible for all groups of users. Detailed product descriptions, item indicators (e.g., for top sellers), larger versions of item images, and graphically highlighted favorites can be displayed in the results list. This makes available a large amount of relevant information.
Usability is further enhanced with the single sign-on function, and automatic authentication in an SAP NetWeaver portal eliminates the need for a manual login.
Informatica Procurement also comes with a tablet- and smartphone-optimized view, allowing you to search and order products from anywhere.
