Which approach to take ? Request your suggestions


Hello all,

We are planning to implement custom work flow for a process in our group. The work flow is not related to any transaction in SAP. It is a request for a form release, where the entire process is happening outside SAP.

Please find the following details about the requirement :

1. We have 200 companies, with a total staff strength of 20k

2. Each company has different approval levels ( In one company, GM needs to approve this process, where as in another one HR executive's approval is enough)

3. We may need to integrate this form release with leave workflow ( we don't use leave workflow as of now) in future, so that this workflow should be triggered when a leave workflow is initiated.

Following are the options we found :

1. Use SAP custom workflow - We don't have a workflow consultant, hence is it tough to achieve ?

2. Use Portal - Guided Procedures ?

3. Use a custom developed portal - Can it integrate with SAP in future?

Apart from these, is there any other way we can implement this?

Which of these options do you suggest?

For some of you, these may be real basic questions.

I would appreciate your suggestions on this.

Thanks in advance
