Leading US office supply company selects MaxECM to implement custom SAP purchasing approval workflow

Miami, April 2021 – MaxECM Solutions LLC, a boutique software and service provider for SAP ECM and Opentext solutions, has completed the implementation of a custom SAP purchase document approval workflow solution at a leading US office supply company.

With a strong web presence and office locations around the globe, the client company is a leading provider of office supplies and marketing material for small and medium sized businesses worldwide.

As part of an SAP S/4HANA implementation, the client determined that a redesign of the corporate purchase document approval workflow is required. Due to organizational complexity, the standard SAP approval workflow templates for purchase requisitions, purchase orders, and contracts no longer met company requirements.

MaxECM was tasked with analyzing business requirements and creating a technical design. After the design was approved, MaxECM implemented several custom workflow templates and enhanced a custom purchase document approval transaction for a seamless workflow integration of purchase requisitions, purchase orders, and contracts on one approval screen in SAP S/4HANA. In addition, special consideration was given to complex requirements, such as parallel approval in multiple approval tracks, different approval strategies based on classification and custom configuration tables, as well as the enhancement and integration of custom user transactions for approval processing. Finally, the implementation of the workflows was successfully completed in the standard SAP Business Workplace as well as FIORI.
