SAP® Sales Audit Redesign at a Big Box Retailer

First Step

A large big-box retail client wanted to kick off a financial systems transformation project with goals that included:

  • Replacing outdated systems
  • Simplifying processes
  • Fostering innovation
  • Building a foundation for future upgrades

The first step was to redesign the sales auditing process.

Project Scope

The project team limited the project scope to replacing an aging legacy system the client used to collect and post point of sale (POS) data into their general ledger. A subsequent inventory management project would enable posting of inventory data into SAP.

The team also defined an enterprise structure in a baseline SAP S/4HANA® financial general ledger. This supported a future roadmap that would include:

  • Posting of sales data
  • Implementing central finance
  • Enabling group reporting

The Rizing team implemented SAP CAR for inbound sales audit processing. Key features include:
