Promotions as a service procurement

Hi SAP experts, please advise in the below case,

Customer has many brands for example B1, B2 & B3 and they make promotions in radio, magazine, TV, Internet... etc.

these advertising methods considered service purchased, my customer needs to know how much expenses the company spent on brand B1 in radio, TV, magazine and so on.

my customer has a requirement to track the expenses spent on each brand by different advertising methods for example:

how much money the company spent on brand B1 this month in Radio and TV

how much many the company spent on brand B2 in TV advertising

i want to create these advertising types (Radio, TV, ..) as a material and under each material i will create the brands as a valuation types so i will have material TV advertising with 3 types B1 B2 B3 so when i make advertising in TV for brand B1 i will crate service PO for material advertising TV with valuation type B1 so please if you have any other solutions or suggestions please help.

Thanks&Regards.

    Hossam,

    Can you set up the brands as cost centers or projects and simply charge the PO line to the cost center or project representing the brand?

    If you want to do it with material master, then your concept is okay. Also you can use vice-versa like as B1 is material and TV is valuation type.

    But as this is a service procurement, you can also use External service management, you can use one as material group and other as service master.
