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.

International SAP Rollouts

SAP Rollout Brazil

The core subject of an IT-internationalization strategy is the integration of the Brazilian site into the company-wide processes. The many different taxes and fees, the Nota Fiscal eletronica, the extensive legal reporting and numerous new tax requirements each year, make this topic a challenge.

Starter Package Rollout for Fast Turn-around Time

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..

Brazilian necessities are already included

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all necessities for legal reporting are delivered with the package by which a non-SAP or third-party solution is obsolete.

Simplified import process with the Phoron Import Cockpit

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.

I really appreciated the intercultural skills of the (European) Phoron team members as well as their experience in the very special circumstances in matters of "tax assessment", which were used in a targeted manner, especially in specialist discussions.
