The challenge of purchasing
Buyers often lack an effective basis for price negotiations and, therefore, a strong negotiating position. Potential cost savings are only possible through manual entry of price updates by suppliers, who enter data in a variety of different formats. This is time-consuming and prone to errors. The PIKON Buyer’s Cockpit SAP add-on supports you with exactly this task.
The PIKON Buyer’s Cockpit supports buyers with their price history analysis and their negotiations with suppliers
PIKON’s Buyer Cockpit for SAP is more than just a cockpit for purchasing info records. It allows for an easy exchange of price info records between Excel and the SAP system. Additionally, the Buyer’s Cockpit supports analysing and monitoring tasks. This not only ensures large‑scale maintenance of data, but also assists buyers with their analysis of price deviations and with subsequent price negotiations. It enables buyers to export large quantities of purchasing info records from SAP, and to send the relevant data to their suppliers during the price update. In addition, buyers can upload the changed data directly to their SAP system and don’t require any support from the SAP IT department. Delta analysis and reporting provides an effective basis for price negotiations and therefore strengthens your negotiating position. Potential for cost savings is increased in less time.
