SAP Materials Management

The Challenge

Developing robust systems and business practices in Procurement and Materials Management can be highly beneficial to most businesses. However, while the need to improve in this area is often clear – take for example excess stock, the absence of volume discounts or frequent operational delays – taking action that addresses the problem at its root without creating new issues elsewhere can be challenging.

What AG Provides

At AG we are not purely technologists, we are solution engineers. What this means is that we are concerned with and understand the bigger picture, ensuring that our solutions address key business problems. We have extensive industry experience in solving Supply Chain and Inventory Management real-world challenges. We combine this knowledge with deep SAP expertise to create high quality, practical and effective solutions.

Our Approach

As Materials Management is often integrated with other areas of SAP, we start your project by gaining an understanding of how other parts of the business could be affected. For example, if you are struggling with master data quality, this can not only affect your master data and reporting teams, but it can also seriously impact your operations, incl. Sales, Production or Projects.

AG are trusted by businesses to improve data quality by engineering practical and effective solutions that have no adverse impact on other areas. We also help to define and implement process automation and reporting that drive efficiency, generate insights and put you back in control of your business.
