Functionality and Configuration of SAP BRIM

With so many companies moving to a service-based or subscription model of product delivery (think: business software-as-a-service or television network streaming websites), the old way of billing just doesn’t cut it.


But how can you account for revenue that come from consumption-based products?


For those working with SAP, the SAP Billing and Revenue Innovation Management (SAP BRIM) solution provides ways to handle complex, subscription-based billing through several interlocking tools. Our latest book covers the solution in detail.


What is SAP BRIM?

SAP BRIM is a next-generation, order-to-cash, revenue management solution that provides finance and sales teams with agile, flexible, scalable, and international capabilities for tracking variable consumption revenues from a consistent customer base. Prior to a rebrand in 2018, SAP BRIM was called SAP Hybris Billing.


If you’re ready to incorporate SAP BRIM into your business landscape, or if you’re just interested in seeing what the solution can do for you, we encourage you to check out SAP Billing and Revenue Innovation Management: Functionality and Configuration.


What Will You Learn?

Explore the foundation of the subscription economy, from services such as infrastructure as a service and platform as a service, to flexible consumption, to subscriptions themselves. See why this new business model makes sense for today’s companies, and how it affects their revenue streams.


Then learn how SAP BRIM helps you meet the demands placed on you by this new paradigm. Find out how to set up and utilize subscription order management, charging, invoicing, and contract accounts receivable and payable functionality in this solution.


Next, discover different integration options for SAP BRIM. Looking to put SAP BRIM to work alongside SAP Convergent Mediation, SAP C/4HANA, SAP Revenue Accounting and Reporting, or SAP Customer Financial Management? You’ll learn about it here.


All of these important features are explained with the help of step-by-step configuration instructions, and the book helpfully follows a single case study to show you the suite in action at a sample company, Martex Corp. Whether you’re providing services or subscriptions, you’ll get the information you need to easily and accurately collect revenue.

  • SAP Convergent Charging
  • SAP Convergent Invoicing
  • Contracts accounting (FI-CA)
  • Implementation

After reading, you’ll have a great sense for how such models influence accounting and sales processes.
