Setting of Defaults via Transfer Manager at Contract Entry

At condition contract processing it is possible to enrich additional data via predefined transfer rules via the transfer manager. This leads to high flexibility and simplification at document entry by defaulting of necessary data.

Enable Plant as Eligible Partner

At contract entry it is possible to maintain plants as eligible partners instead of vendor or customer data. Beside vendors or customers, plants are often also business partners that drive the business and are part of contractual agreements.

Plants as Eligible Partner List

At contract entry it is possible to maintain plant lists as eligible partner lists. This new type of eligible partner list can be used within conditions contract processing to assign a list of plants as eligible partner. With this feature it is possible to group plants as an eligible partner list. This list can be used within condition contract to define the eligible partner instead of maintaining each single plant.

Manual Creation of Contract Settlement Invoices and Credit Memos

With this feature you can create a contract settlement document (invoice or credit memo) which will be send to the settlement partner (vendor or customer) to request you settlement amount. This document is the basis to check the incoming invoice via clearing workbench. The handling of differences and the FI posting will be handled by the clearing workbench process itself.

In some countries it is not allowed to create self invoices. Therefore a capability is needed to send a settlement request to the business partner (vendor) to request your settlement amount. The matching of your data and the incoming invoice if your partner will be done via the Clearing workbench.

Existence Check of Business Volume at Settlement

At contract settlement it is possible to avoid settlement items or documents for such conditions that do not have any related business volume value. This leads to a reduction of non necessary settlement items or documents that do not have any settlement value.

Integration of PMR Vendor Fund into Condition Contract Settlement Application

The conditions contract application provides an A2A interface to consume vendor funds from the SAP PMR application. Beside the business logic, additional Customizing capabilities are provided to allow the customer to build up their business requirements. In addition, BAdIs will be provided to allow custom-specific enrichments of the integration scenario.

With this feature it is possible to transfer SAP PMR vendor funds data into SAP ERP. The vendor funds are replicated into the condition contract. The condition contract application provides capabilities to settle the vendor fund as defined in SAP PMR.

Parallel Processing in Condition Contract Settlement

With this feature vou can run the settlement and accruals reversal process using parallelization within the same job. This new feature also contributes to the high degree of accuracy achieved by data consistency checks performed during batch processing, since specific checks can now be carried out based on the results of each parallel task.

Previously, data was stored in several job logs. In this release, data is stored in one job log, which reduces the root cause analysis time needed to locate the cause of an error.
