Supplier Catalog Activate in SAP


We are trying to implement Supplier Catalog in ECC, WITHOUT SRM.

How can we achieve this, is there I need any external software?

Can we accommodate multiple Vendor Catalogs?

What are the configuration steps I need to proceed?

How the approval process works, ordering and payment process works?

Please give me some advice, I never worked before with Supplier Catalog.

Thanks for your help

    You need to configure the catalog connection in SPRO >> 'Materials Management >> Purchasing >> Environment Data >> Web Services: ID and Description'. By standard SAP only one catalog can be used and should be marked as "default" catalog. This enables a catalog button in ME21n. After EhP5 it is also possible to enable multiple catalogs.

    For multiple catalogs, see note: 1603637 - How to use multiple purchasing Catalog in EhP5? - Material Management Purchasing Catalog

    Approval can be build with workflow or Fiori app 'Approve PO'. All other purchasing data works as in MM purchasing. Purchasing in ECC is not equipped with same functionalities as in SRM and there can be obstacles with correct account assignment etc. We are trying to implement this solution with Screen Personas modified UI for ME21n but there are many issues to be solved still.
