50Hertz uses the SAP Business Network, an electronic supplier portal that is optimally aligned with the SAP S4 HANA platform. Since the tenders are processed via Ariba Sourcing, in the future they will only need one company account with SAP to carry out the entire procurement process with us.
With the supplier portal, 50Hertz introduced a software solution based on the SAP Supplier Lifecycle Management (SLC) and SAP Supplier Self Services (SUS) modules. In combination with the Bidding Engine module, all aspects of supplier management are represented and handled via the supplier portal.
All processes are handled via the the SAP Business Network: registration, actualisation of master data, handling of tendering processes, orders, payments and assessment of the collaboration with 50Hertz (at both ends). This ensures both, efficient communication and optimal execution.
The 50Hertz supplier portal is optimised for use in Windows Internet Explorer. You can download an overview of the browsers supported by the supplier portal in this side's download section (check top of page for the link). When using the portal in a browser that is not listed in the overview, misrepresentations of portal views, e.g. missing templates and functions, are possible.You can find the frequently asked questions (FAQ) here.
