SAP is the leading ERP software in the German-speaking world - yet many users are not sufficiently aware of the application possibilities in treasury. SAP also offers powerful functions in cash management and payment transactions to simplify and automate daily work processes.

With SAP S/4HANA, the Cash Management module has been significantly improved: Bank accounts can now be self-managed quickly and transparently, and the cash position can be created automatically. With just a few clicks, you can analyze aggregated reports down to the line items.

Furthermore, you will learn how payment activities can be integrated centrally in SAP. We explain the advantages and disadvantages of various bank connection solutions and what the effects are when payment formats are converted to ISO20022. In addition to external payment transactions, we also address intercompany payments: We show how to reconcile and clear intercompany payments with SAP. With the implementation of payments-on-behalf, your system becomes the central hub for international payment transactions.

We will show you all seminar content live in S/4HANA, but will also go into the previous mapping in R/3 (ECC 6.0) and the differences to it. Since many functions are also already available in R/3, we will show you what you can already implement today and continue to use later in S/4HANA.

For the right treasury strategy in times of transition from R/3 to S/4HANA, we recommend our seminar "SAP: S/4HANA - what you need to know in treasury".

Our SAP Treasury seminars are held in cooperation with MMG Treasury.
