SAP® Sales Audit Redesign at a Big Box Retailer
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- Replacing outdated systems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.
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:
Master Data Setup and POS Integration
Sales Audit Functionality
Credit Settlement File
Cash Over/Short Calculations
SFA – Financial Adjustments
SFA – Sales Adjustments
Sales Auditor Accountability
Sales Auditor Performance Reporting
Key Enhancements in S4 Posting
Integration with CFIN
And the project results?
Lots to be happy about.
The client now enjoys an efficient and thorough audit process. The new process allows the team to focus on what matters and provide over/short information for Store Operations and Asset Protection.
They also enjoy additional flexibility to react to changes outside of finance.
The client can also now:
- Easily detect missing sales
- Import detailed SKU-level transactions into SAP
- Seamlessly integrate with S/4HANA, CAR and Fiori, leveraging SLT & AIF capabilities
- Create custom reports & workflows via Fiori
