ABC Computers has been experiencing customer issues lately. Most of them are centered around mis-communication between the different teams ( the SAP Sales team, Warehouse Team, Billing Team and Credit Management team ). Because of the large size and distribute geography of this team, information passed on by the Customer to us is not properly documented and hence is ‘slipping through’ untilately resulting in poor service. Since the sales team is customer facing, they are being charged with the responsibility to fix this issue. The Sales Process Owner has got a IT budget approved to do Business Process Re-engineering ( BPRE ) around this problem.
The project kick-off meeting has started and the team along with the SAP SD Functional consultant is in the process of first understanding the problem and identifying the resolutions. After the requirement gathering workshop is done, you go back to the team, discuss the different options and come out with the opinion that you want to use texts and print them out on SAP Outputs to alleviate the problems.
