SAP FI and S/4 HANA:

We create innovative main ledger solutions for you.

The challenge:

SAP ERP Financials (FI) and SAP new GL are based on the same basic principle: Accounting information from the legacy systems are prepared for analysis in an aggregated form. Inefficient processes can lead to time bottle-necks especially with increasing data volumes, e.g. during end-of-period processing. This results in inflexible data analysis. New external or internal reporting requirements become difficult to implement. Parallel data storage for internal and external accounting makes reconciliation expensive and gives rise to inconsistencies in the reported data. S/4 HANA Finance exploits the benefits of real-time processing in connection with new data architecture. This way one can create a unified data basis for the internal and external accounting and forego convoluted reconciliation efforts. The pre-aggregation of data is no longer needed. With this solution, data are processed and aggregated in real-time as needed. This leads to extreme flexibility in data analysis and reporting.

Your ponturo benefits:

  • We have extensive accounting experience and will be your competent partner for the introduction.
  • We are experienced in the introduction and operation of SAP ERP FI and SAP new GL and have extensive knowledge of the SAP Business Suite on SAP HANA.
  • We have intensive contacts to SAP and will be glad to advise you on the latest developments in the field of accounting.

SAP Loans Management:

We will implement a future-proof loan system for you.

The challenge:

SAP Loans Management is the SAP standard module for representing loans with both simple and complex structures. At the moment there are two variants: the classical ERP-based CML module and the LM module based on the SAP banking platform. While CML posts to a general ledger in real time (usually SAP FI or new GL), LM requires the use of SAP Accounting for Financial Instruments (AFI) as posting interface. For customers with SAP Bank Analyzer, LM represents the future-oriented alternative.

Your ponturo benefits:

  • We have extensive experience in the introduction of SAP Loans Management.
  • We are also experts in the SAP Bank Analyzer, so that we can cover all topics when the module based on the banking platform is selected.
  • We offer detailed product know-how and can also take on the functional design.
