SAP Rollout Brazil
Master the SAP Rollout to Brazil
ERP Rollouts to Brazil are quite different when compared to rollouts to other countries. The complex structures and the diverse statutory requirements are a bureaucratic jungle for Europeans.
The Phoron Starter Package for your SAP rollout to Brazil consists of the country version which is constantly updated with the latest notes and includes the complete customizing for the Brazilian tax calculation (ICMS, IPI, PIS, COFINS, and ISS). The package contains pre-configured, Brazil-specific Best-Practice processes, which are incomplete in the SAP standard in relation to the legal reporting such as sales processes, sub-contracting, consignment and transfer between plants. In effect, with our starter package, the system is ready to for productive use from day one. Therefore a lot of time is saved at the start of the project..
Moreover, various support programs are also included, which support the tests in the introductory phase, and provide additional opportunities to increase process reliability in the productive environment. As part of the starter package, all documentation pertaining to the delivered processes are included, which are valuable as a basis for further project work, and creating further documentation. Besides the pre-configured SAP country-version, all necessities for legal reporting are delivered with the package by which a non-SAP or third-party solution is obsolete.
The import process in Brazil is very complex and involves a lot of manual work and is therefore very prone to errors. There are a number of legal requirements in Brazil in order to be able to import and move goods in Brazil. Data such as product values, taxes, fees, etc. must be posted for each product. In addition, an identification number must be requested from the Brazilian government for the movement of goods.
The Phoron Import Cockpit bundles all of this data in one interface from which all further processes in the procurement process can be initiated in a structured manner. Every single step in the import process is assigned to the correct identification number. This avoids duplicates and makes the process much easier and clearer.
Brazil is complex, these are the facts. But the associated structuring required by the complexity substantially reduces the project risk.
The decisive factors for structuring the complexity and reducing the project risk include
Know-how of the complexity and the structure
Know-how of the possibilities in SAP
Know-how of the legal requirements
Structured analysis of the current status
Structured project plan
Structured integration test
