Sorting Bid Invitations through map

Former Member

Hello all,

An interesting reuqirement has come from our client.

Currently for bidding they are using a locally developed e-procurement site

which offers bidders the facility to sort the Bid Invitatios by clicking

on the state of the country in the map.

They are looking for the same facility with SAP SRM also.

We are educating the core team to use the standard search criteria.

But just for acedemic purpose was thinking over this request.

My hypothesis is as follows:

We can make statewise pur org which will be selected by the purchaser during

the creation of BI.

When the bidder will click on a particular state in map i need to develop

some link which will tell SRM to sort the BI for the resp pur org to show

to bidder.

I am not clear what mechanism will enable me to link the picture file

for a value of pur org.

Can anybody throw some light on this requirement?



Don't worry for points.

I find this is very peculiar requirement, i am just sharing my ideas

it may work out.

But it all depends on integration compatibility of different files.

1. The purchase Org should be linked to states.

for this we can make use of purchase org address

2. We can adopt technology like Google maps. Where we can click on maps and in search boxes(Like business search in Google map) we can link Bid invitation, Purchase Orders. etc.. document type which contain the specific area of click on map, and it should sort from corresponding document type based on Purchase Org details and address from it.

3. But i am basically functional consultant, i think some body with technical knowledge can help you out the integration of different file types and sort criteria.

I hope it helps.

Thanks & BestRegards
