Create Purchase Request – ME51/N

Streamline the Creation of SAP Purchase Requests

Winshuttle technologies help make it easier for purchasing organizations to create SAP purchase requests. Winshuttle enables users to work with SAP from Excel, Access, HTML, or PDF as the primary interface when creating purchase requests (PRs).

The purchase requisition process captures the critical information about needed items or services and the process required to authorize the acquisition. Although the purchase requisition processes and the required rules and data can vary based on region, industry, business needs, and the type of item or service, Winshuttle enables business analysts to work with SAP through more usable interfaces.
