Does ECC support 3rd Party Order process?
We have suppliers who ship, on our behalf, directly to customers. In other words we take the order from the customer and send it to the supplier. The supplier ships directly to customer and sends us an ASN. We want to create the A/P for the supplier, and the A/R for the customer. We never handle the inventory.
Can SAP support this?
Yes, but not in standard ECC. The solution is offered as an ACS (Automotive Consulting Solution), but other industries also can benefit. It supports multiple popular scenarios for automotive implementations – discrete orders, Scheduling Agreement with release, subcontract, 3rd Party delivery (3PL), etc. See the attached for more detail.
