Discover the full potential of S/4HANA

S/4HANA offers you new simplified data structures (Universal Journal) and functions for use in finance, operational control, and logistics. Fully integrate your income statement and material ledger into the operational quantity and value flow. Run an efficient flow analysis using Fiori apps, and apply it to your operational control. Other advantages include generation of margin-free views for Group operational control, and ability to map commercial plant controlling based on Universal Journal. Using S/4HANA as a digital core also creates the opportunity for you to utilize new cloud functions such as the Internet of Things and machine learning.

Universal Journal

Making controlling transparent

Universal Journal offers a consistent method of consolidating financial controlling and accounting information. The classic standard dual-circuit system is now being replaced by a single-circuit system. The baseline for optimizing your operational control is a clearly defined business management concept that ensures integrity and guarantees feasibility in the new structures. Only by harmonizing information on a company-wide basis – for example through data governance for accounts, business partners or cost centers – can you appreciably enhance transparency in your operational control. Our consultants will assist you in making your operational control transparent, with S/4HANA as an enabler:

  • Illustrate a wide variety of business models
  • Establish KI-based reporting
  • Simplify contribution analyses

Technological expertise

Implementing transformation effectively

Working with S/4HANA since 2015 has brought us an in-depth appreciation of the tool. Our experts develop use cases based on an in-house S/4HANA system, and also undertake small proof-of-concept scenarios on request within projects. Doing this enables us to ensure that business management concepts are actually implemented, and that the necessary changes are made to processes, data, and employees. We provide support throughout the process. We believe that change management is a vital part of any transformation project.
