SRM UI Add-On – A web-like shopping experience for casual users

SAP SRM User Interface Add-On 1.0 is a user experience for casual users to create shopping carts (purchase requests) from catalogs with little or no training. The familiar look-and-feel and dynamic web page features that users enjoy from online shopping and internet search experiences have been incorporated into their corporate buying experience. Users can search across catalogs (internal and external catalog content) to quickly find the products and services they need to order. Companies can customize the user interface to their familiar corporate branding and unique procurement processes.

      Hello Michael,

      I can confirm that the solution has great acceptance among users. We implemented it at a global pharmaceutical company for x0 000 users and the feedback is great.

      One thing I would like to highlight is that we were able to easily enhance the solution to add customer specific functionality (editing of the purchase order, partial and full confirmation of the purchase order, partial and full return of the purchase order). You can ready about it here - Improved usability for SAP SRM with UI5 and Gateway | msc mobile.

      All the best, Alex

      There isn't an official document, but a colleague created a help guide, which I put at the following link.

      https://mdocs.sap.com:443/mcm/public/v1/select?shr=k_177s59uSODDoOd20UIp-mIhstyrOgwjbc6ZU_CHD8&obj=0-R61xFNwX1LlXgpe_RD2LUiI1lUUb8Igl1TwTV2MJU

      This link is only available for 21 days.  Anyone needing the link after that will need to re-request so I can post it again.

      I apologize, but I left SAP and will not be able to post the link again.  I will see if I can get an old colleague to update the link.

      Nice article Michael.

      Could I ask everyone if they have any experience implementing the SRM Add-on UI on an SRM-PPS (Procurement in the Public Sector) system? Is it possible? From the notes I have seen, it appears not however I am keen to hear if anyone has tried this.

      Regards

      Hi Gerald,

      With SP07 you can add most of the PPS Fields in the UI AddOn.

      Best Regards,
