Value Proposition for SAP S/4HANA Finance

Enhanced reporting functionality

The foundation for SAP S/4HANA Finance reporting is based on transactional data stored in a high-performing database. With the removal of ETL, drilling down to individual line items is simpler and faster. With a centralized database, real-time derivation of profitability characteristics reduces manual labour and increases turnover and efficiency.

Rapid monthly closing process

SAP S/4HANA allows existing application logic to be reprogrammed to run in real-time. With changes in correction postings visible in near real-time, the closing process is faster. This further negates the need to manually reconcile FI and CO sub-modules, automatically reconciling them as they are written together in the same table.

Simplified UX

Specifically designed for the easiest UX it reduces processing overdue receivables by a large margin. With a single entry point and unified experience across devices, it increases user productivity, requires less training when onboarding new employees and reduced errors. The system has a diverse set of applications that help deliver the best UX.

Seamless integration

Integrating S/4HANA Finance into a complex IT landscape is done by replicating data to the Central Finance instance in real-time. This is suited for moving from a complex landscape towards a shared finance service centre. With the Central Finance system providing all the required functionality using their accounting functionality decommissions the source systems. When the migration is linked to operational and financial drivers it provides a structured framework delivering higher value, revenue, and productivity.
