About the Book: Configuring Sales in SAP S/4HANA

SAP S/4HANA Sales bundles sales and distribution functionalities that help companies manage sales orders and get their goods to customers.


Why Integrate Processes?

When a sale is made, a host of different, timed activities are kicked off. Does the product need to be made? Is it ready for delivery? Who will provide transportation to its destination? How will payment be collected? What happens if the product is returned?


Those who worked with the any of the logistics or sales and distribution modules of the old SAP Business Suite will be happy to know how tightly processes like these are integrated in the new suite. Our latest book Configuring Sales in SAP S/4HANA aims to help you configure the solution to meet your needs.


What Will You Learn?

Everything from getting your system set up to reporting on the great new insights you’ll glean. First explore some of the changes between sales functionality in SAP ERP and SAP S/4HANA, and then see how to configure a new system using step-by-step instructions.


Discover all the critical sales workflows you’ll work with while using the solution. Once the sale has been made, the work doesn’t stop there—see how to master distribution in these pages, including shipping, delivery, drop shipping, stock transfers, customer consignment, and more. Whether your focus is on billing and invoicing, contracts, available-to-promise, complaint management, or something else—this book will help you become comfortable with SAP S/4HANA Sales.
