WALLDORF, Germany, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Demonstrating ongoing innovation in the area of procurement, SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced a user interface add-on for the SAP® Supplier Relationship Management (SAP SRM) application. The add-on is a consumer-like user experience for casual procurement users to create purchase requests from catalogs with little or no training. It will be demoed at SAPPHIRE® NOW + SAP® TechEd, being held as a co-located event in Madrid from November 13-16, 2012.

SAP worked with over 40 customers to develop the more intuitive user experience. The familiar look-and-feel and dynamic Web page features that users enjoy from online shopping and Internet search experiences have been incorporated into their corporate buying experience. Features like type-ahead search terms, browse by category, filtering, detailed product information and ratings enables users to search across internal and external catalogs to quickly find the products and services they need to order. Companies can easily customize the user interface to their familiar corporate branding and unique procurement processes. The user interface add-on offers:

  • A customizable front-end for casual users to create shopping carts
  • A simple, familiar, Web-shopping user interface
  • One common user interface that displays search results from multiple catalogs, internal and external, including product details and multiple images

The interface is a non-modifying add-on that quickly implements on top of an existing landscape for the 7.0 version of SAP SRM, so customers do not need to modify any configuration. With the ease of implementation, customers can increase SRM adoption within their organization to realize process efficiencies, drive contract compliance and improve purchasing control.

"After participating in customer testing sessions, we expect that the SRM user interface add-on will bring the enhanced functionality as well as the usability that our users are asking for," said Ike Babbitt, change management specialist, Sourcing & Procurement, Boston University.
