enterprise spend planning


Dear all,

I wonder if someone of you has experiece with enterprise spend planning tool.

Our company is looking at options of working with a third party vendor on this.

Let me explain how this would work.

We will create a purchase order in SAP. The purchase order then will be transferred autmatically to a supplier network portal. The vendor will log to the website of the suplier network and will call up the purchase order and book the invoice for us. When the invoice is booked it will be transferred to our SAP system.

No comes the isue: we want to make use of variable discount. For example we send a payment proposal automatically to the supplier network. Our vendor will see in the supplier network our payment proposal that are planning to pay their invoices in10 days. Our supplier can then suggest that if we pay within 5 days that we get a discount of 5%. A message would then need to be send back to our SAP system and then should automatically update the invoice amount.

This all sounds nice in theory but I'm not sure how practical this is and if sap supports this.

Does anyone has experience with this?

For example what report can we use in SAP that show our supplier what amounts we are planning to pay within the next 10 days?

Is it possible to automatically update the vendor amount invoices with the discount that we can deduct if we pay for example within 5 days?

kind regards,
