POS Interface - Inbound: New Functions in Retail

Description

As a result of requirements from the retail sector (SAP Retail), Release 4.0A includes the following new functions:

Of these, the following were not included in SAP Retail Release 1.2B:

General POS interface - inbound functions

You can only use this function if you use

SAP Retail.

You can receive movement data and master data, such as sales, purchase orders, goods receipts or changes, from your stores via the POS interface - inbound. The data is prepared in the POS interface - inbound in the form of IDocs.
The IDocs are then processed in the R/3 system, i.e. the necessary postings are made, documents created etc.

Handling of structured materials

You can only use this function if you use

SAP Retail.

Materials subject to deposit may be exploded at POS inbound processing. You can make this setting in POS customizing in the profiles for aggregated and non-aggregated sales.

It only makes sense to explode the materials at POS inbound processing if the POS system is not able to carry out this function itself.

Rackjobber processing

You can only use this function if you use

SAP Retail.

Rackjobber processing allows you to manage external goods in stores. Stocks and sales revenue from these external goods can be managed separately from the goods which are owned by your company.

European Monetary Union

You can only use this function if you use

SAP Retail.

It is now possible to define a currency other than the company code currency for stores. At POS - inbound, the amounts are converted automatically. Therefore you do not need to convert the POS in all the stores of a company code at the same time.
In addition, it is possible to have different currencies for the item values and the payment types.
