Making it Easier, Making it Better
3M is pleased to announce the implementation of SAP software. This software will help facilitate a better overall customer experience by linking business processes, people and information with one global, seamlessly integrated platform of standardized business processes.
3M Business Transformation is about establishing strong links between business processes, people and information to provide a more positive overall experience. These links will occur through the creation of one global, seamlessly integrated platform of standardized business processes, facilitated by SAP software.
3M Business Transformation is focused on reducing complexity and increasing consistency. Its aim is to globally integrate business practices, increase IT capabilities, expand processes and systems and improve response time. It also strives to achieve better business planning and faster decision making.
By automating purchase orders, payments and settlement processes, suppliers may be able to more rapidly process orders, know when and where they will be paid and obtain the receivables necessary to conduct business.
Suppliers who provide accurate ASN data may save significant time in internal accounting systems and create an environment for agile manufacturing. Electronic documents mean purchase order and invoice processes may be automated as well. This can allow for more accurate production forecasting and the ability to see where your inventory is located (in transit or warehouse). These benefits will be offered in future releases. It can also create a connection for real-time, accurate receipt confirmations.
Other benefits across the supply chain are:
• Data should be more visible and more accurate
