User Interface

The web standard SAP Fiori has a uniform, modern appearance. Since it is practically indistinguishable from other SAP applications, such as SAP S/4HANA, familiarization periods are much shorter. With the SAP Fiori My Inbox, the EXA Operational Transfer Pricing (EXA OTP) solution also features a powerful and easy-to-use approval concept for workflows with which S/4HANA systems users will soon become familiar. EXA’s OTP solution also offers a standard set of data analytics reports that can be flexibly expanded and adapted to suit specific company requirements.

Certified for integration with SAP S/4HANA

SAP Certified Integration with SAP S4/HANA

EXA OTP is certified by SAP SE for integration with SAP S/4HANA and is based on the well-known high-performance HANA database. The application uses established SAP technologies and offers interfaces to financial data via standard extractors, thus avoiding regular and manual loading of flat files.

OTP Connect installed on source systems

The solution reads data from profit and loss accounts, as well as granular information from single intercompany invoices with quantities and prices per line item. By technically connecting underlying product master data and accounting information, a standard reporting system for Transfer Pricing is provided that includes segmented P&L reporting plus transaction matrices.

On-premise and cloud

Options are available for data management for smaller, often non-SAP group entities. Multi-dimensional role models can be defined for authorization and authentication, and the solution can be easily integrated into the customer’s single sign-on strategy. Installation is possible on-premise as well as in a cloud environment.
