SPRINT ERP is a SAP Business All-in-One solution certified by SAP SE. The solution is designed for midsize companies. It is a complete ERP solution that supports company management in key areas – financials and controlling, purchasing, production, and sales and distribution. SPRINT ERP enables companies to deploy the SAP ERP system at significantly reduced costs within much shorter implementation time using the best business practices embedded in this solution.
By deploying SPRINT ERP, the customer receives a ready-to-use operating model, which is optimal from the perspective of the needs and capabilities of a midsize company, supported by the most modern information technology in the world.
SPRINT ERP was prepared in response to real needs of companies from the SME sector. It is based on the best business practices included in SAP system which were adapted by us to business reality of medium companies on the basis of its implementation experience. The advantage of SPRINT over other ERP systems is a significantly shorter time of system implementation. It is because SPRINT was designed in order to reduce customers’ engagement in a project to minimum. All SPRINT projects are of fix-scope and fix-price character – the scope of an implemented system and its price are known at the moment of signing an agreement.
SPRINT ERP is a cross-industry solution, i.e. addressed to different trades, which is officially confirmed by the SAP AG certification. The system can be adapted and developed for different trades and their changing business needs.
Financial accounting is used to register business events. It enables to keep a chart of accounts, to make statutory financial reports, to manage accounts receivable and payable, to support cash operations and bank statements. Moreover, financial accounting — as it mediates in transferring values between logistic and management modules, such as Controlling and Treasury — represents an important link integrating the system.
Fixed assets accounting is performed to maintain registry of fixed assets, intangible assets, investments, financial assets and other components (e.g. remaining in the off balance registry). Such registry is integrated with other system modules (including the general ledger, book of suppliers, book of customers, controlling). The functionality of fixed assets accounting enables multi-dimensional valuation and classification of assets, according to various requirements (balance sheet accounting and tax accounting, requirements of the capital group etc.) and, in consequence, to prepare reports required by various entities: GUS, gminas (the smallest administrative districts in Poland), Executive Board, Board of Directors etc.
Treasury is used to manage cash in the enterprise. On a single report (liquidity forecast) inflowing and outflowing cash is displayed by planned currency date. In the liquidity forecast, logistic operations, such as supply order, sales order or settlement items, are taken into consideration. Forecasted items can be entered directly in the TR module. Values from the liquidity forecast can be matched with balances on bank accounts and additional bank accounts. This way, information about forecasted cash status is obtained. This information complements payment application functionality: it is obtained by financial department before the date of real cash movement.
Controlling supports registration, planning, settling and analysis of enterprise costs and revenue for management purposes. In this module it is possible to reflect the structure of enterprise cost centers, to create so‑called orders accumulating costs of cyclic or temporary activities, to create production orders accumulating production costs and revenue/profitability analysis in market segments consisting of a combination of features such as product, customer, retailer, channel. Many methods of automatic settlement of real and planned costs and a flexible reporting system are available to users.
Production planning module is used to manage long term, operational and current planning processes that control product manufacturing.
It operates inventory production, customer order production, customer order assembly strategies, as well as many intermediate ones. Through integration with other logistic modules it enables creation of perennial sales and production plans, material requirement planning for items produced and purchased, planning and executing production and mass production order processing. PP module functionalities allow production companies enjoy economic advantages resulting from an integrated system implementation eg. reduction of product stocks, running production and raw materials, production capacity and quality improvement.
Materials management is used to control enterprise material flows. Using this module allows to process the materials inside the procurement cycle, i.e. to manage the materials for procurement needs, stock management and entering invoices as an element ending the procurement cycle. Moreover, the module ensures stock level lowering through the use of material planning methods.
Sales and Distribution is used to perform the activities related to the logistic process within sales, distribution and invoicing. Using the module enables to register pre‑sale tasks, to establish sales terms, to support shipment, to issue required shipment documents and a VAT invoice. Specified tasks are supported by many features allowing to assign required terms of sale to a customer automatically. Thanks to the integration, issue from the warehouse and invoiced sale are automatically booked in the accounts and enable to perform an analysis of sales profitability by various criteria. In Sales and Distribution, typical quantity-and-value sales analyses may be performed, and own customized analyses may be created.
