Supercharging ECC and S/4HANA with the SAP Business Network

SAP S/4HANA is the best ERP, but in today’s world, supply chain visibility, payment compliance, and making the best use of resources are critical. Collaborating with your suppliers using email, phone, paper, or rigid and complex EDI integrations represents a competitive disadvantage.

In this session, Optima will show you how you can supercharge your ERP system by quickly leveling up your B2B collaboration with your suppliers via the SAP Business Network. With a focus on best practices, invoice automation, and working capital optimization we will show you how to strategically optimize resources, address risk, drive supply chain resiliency and sustainability all while generating financial improvements.
