SAP CPM (Commercial Project Management) changes the way you manage your Project Lifecycle to optimise results. SAP CPM will solve the various Business Issues you face across several areas, including Integrated Estimating, Advanced Financial Management, Simplified Project Control Experience and Integrated Project Issue & Change Management.
CPM will change and improve the way you manage your Project Lifecycle by giving you:
As a layer that sits over your SAP Project Systems, CPM comes as a shared workspace. Its ‘front door’ cockpit provides an overall insight on how your project is travelling in a top-down approach. At a glance, Project Managers can see exactly where their project is at from a financial, delivery, procurement and a sales perspective.
CPM demonstrates several key capabilities that solve four main Business Issues:
While standard SAP doesn’t provide the ability to load estimates, CPM supports estimates with a Project Costs and Revenue Planning capability. Manage and improve estimates with actual reporting and analysis, link to your delivery and bid structure and integrate your APIs estimation system to drive good project delivery.
We understand that financial Forecasting and Loading is complicated. CPM supports Forecasting and Planning via Excel Analysis for Office with standard delivered Excel Planning templates, Real-time Project monitoring and control, Integrated reporting with Excel for detailed user analysis and Customer defined KPIs.
There is little capability in standard SAP to manage Project Issues and Changes. CPM capability provides full Issue, Risk and Change capability as well as full visibility of the financial impact of Project Changes and Risk.
Whether you have a standard way of work or not, CPM gives you a consistent, top-down analysis of Project Status. View of all your projects and transactions in a one-stop shop platform, including management, financials, resourcing, procurement and sales. Little training is required and analysis is available to drill down deeper and source documents via Excel Tools.
