Digitization of price requests in purchasing – supported by the search engine.


High compliance through networking all parties involved and automatic generation of documents.

Integration of suppliers

Efficient and easy collaboration with suppliers.

Simplified ordering of quotes

No more system breaches. Quotes are published by suppliers in the cloud and can directly be added to the shopping cart by employee or buyer.


Often, only the demanding department rather than the purchasing department has the necessary information to make requests for a project, a product or a trade.  In order to shorten the process, it is possible to dispense with the involvement of purchasing if the inquiries do not exceed a specified value of goods.


A price enquiry form can be provided either via Guided Buying or via the Cloud Search Engine. If, for example, the user wants to obtain quotations for SAP Consulting, he starts the purchasing process with a price request.

Collaboration with suppliers

An employee or buyer sends a price request from the purchasing system to the supplier via Digital Procurement 4.0. The supplier can supplement the prices online and, if desired, also upload an attachment.


The employee is informed by e-mail as soon as an offer has been received for his price request. He can confirm the offer with one click and automatically convert it into a shopping cart. The order can then be sent directly to the supplier and the respective document is created automatically in the SAP system.
