At SAP, we are constantly striving to deliver enterprise solutions to accelerate business innovation (yep, I am a proud employee!). We regularly invite our customers to partner with us to identify and address new business challenges. As of today, there are two initiatives in the area of Order Management that you must know about – and are cordially invited to participate in.
Order to Cash and Contract to Cash Benchmarking
The Americas’ SAP Users’ Group (ASUG) recently launched benchmarking initiatives for Order to Cash and Contract to Cash processes. Participation is free of charge and is open to ASUG Installation members. The benchmarking survey takes 2 – 3 days to complete and must be submitted by April 16, 2008 in order to be included in the first round of reporting.

“In 1990, fifteen SAPPHIRE® attendees met at the conclusion of the conference to form an SAP users’ group. Within one year, ASUG was created.”
“As the world’s largest, customer-run community of SAP professionals, ASUG has the unique ability to continuously offer the resources you need…every day of the year.”
About ASUG/SAP Benchmarking Initiative
“The ASUG/SAP Benchmarking program provides a unique opportunity for ASUG Installation Members to assess where their companies excel and determine areas for improvement. Participants learn about current and emerging best practices, enabling them to quickly adopt ideas fueling excellence at world-class organizations. Survey participation is currently free for ASUG Installation Members, and participating companies will receive a detailed and comprehensive custom report comparing the efficiency and effectiveness of their processes and systems with best-in-class Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).”
About Order to Cash and Contract to Cash Benchmarking
“The Order to Cash and Contract to Cash Benchmarking studies cover six business processes, more than 25 key performance indicators and 45 best practices. The Order to Cash survey is usually most relevant to those in the manufacturing area, while Contract to Cash generally works best for those in the service industry. However, both surveys are available to all ASUG member companies, included with installation membership.”

The SAP Order Management study is an initiative by SAP Product Management to identify the current and emerging trends for Order Management and to understand how companies have been successful at Order Management and what the unaddressed challenges are. The study will help to define what is needed in the next generation of Order Management solutions.
