process for supplier registration

Hi there,

We want to use supplier registration functionality for us to capture vendor registration process into the system. We are planning to use SRM to capture this process. Our planned system will be SRM 7 EHP 1 with ECC 6 EHP 4.

Our desired business process is like this:

1. Vendor will click link in our company website,

2. Vendor then will fill up the general data, and submit supporting documents,

3. Purchaser then will evalute the general data and the supporting documents, if okay, then it will be approved,

4. After that the vendor data will be replicated to ECC

I wonder whether this can be captured in standard functionality of supplier registration in SRM?

Best regards,

Josh

    Hi Josh,

    Submitting supporting documents is not supported in the standard flow. Also vendor replication to ECC has been introduced from SRM 7 Ehp 1 onwards. Hence please read some documentation before committing to your client. Everything else is a standard process

      Hi Nikhil,

      I have read some documentation in this link:

      http://help.sap.com/saphelp_srm701/helpdata/EN/cd/d7114b1df64601b4173fbce6513a31/frameset.htm

      Are you referring to the "Supplier Qualification with Automatic Transfer to SAP ERP" which is described in this link? If yes, I assume that the pre-requisite is using Supplier Registration within SUS, rite? If I dont use SUS can i have this functionality?

      Further reading from this link, I see this statement:

      "The accounts payable clerk checks the IDoc list (we05), completes the missing data in the IDoc and restarts the inbound IDoc, if necessary"

      This is rather confusing for me as SRM supplier data do not cover full data (no financial data), thus if we use this functionality then the message will always stuck in IDOC, and then the AP clerk need to always check the IDOC, is this meant to be like this? And one more thing, is it a good practice to allow user to complete data in IDOC? As far as I know, IDOC is a very technical object, I cannot imagine a non-technical user told to edit the IDOC and restart the data?

      Best regards,

      Josh

    Hi,

    As Nikhil said, this was not part of the standard deliverable till SRM 7.0. We have to build the custom interface to push vendor from SRM-ECC once the purchaser approve. This was done through BSP in ROS. in SRM 7.01 onwards SAP deliver this feature as part of standard through webdyn pro.
