In the May 2023 release for SAP Business Network, our product team launched a number of features for our buyer and supplier customers. The full list of features released for SAP Business Network for Procurement can be found here. Below are notable features to highlight:

Capability to invite supplier from trading partner search results [NS-21013]

In the new buyer portal, users can now search directly for trading partners, verify the profile, and send an invitation for fulfilment collaboration. This feature will be rolled out in phases, with all customers being enabled by Monday, June 12.

This is a valuable feature for buyer customers as they can easily find and connect to trading partners on the network, allowing them to move quickly to fulfill their business needs.

Sustainability rating filter available in trading partner search [NS-21015]

This feature allows customers to filter search results by sustainability rating. This helps buyers fulfill their corporate social responsibility objectives more efficiently by being able to see a list of suppliers that meet certain sustainability criteria.

Topical Workbench for Buyers [SA-34550]

The classic document list pages for buyers have been replaced by topical workbench pages, for orders, Invoices, and payments. Object-oriented menus now direct to these topical workbench pages. This feature extends the user workbench experience, giving users a more streamlined way to filter and access their documents. This feature planned to be rolled out in phases, with all customers being enabled by Monday, July 03.

Ability for buyers to resend multiple invoices with routing status Failed at once [NP-34591]

When invoices fail from being sent from the network to the buyers' back-end systems, buyers have to resend invoices one-by-one, which is time-consuming. With this feature, buyers can resend up to 100 failed invoices at a time.
