SAP S/4HANA Finance for your successful accounting

Especially in finance and accounting, data, key figures and processes need to be analyzed in real time so that these analysis results and forecasts can be used as a reliable basis for making decisions. To be able to efficiently handle the flood of data and information nowadays, manual efforts and error-prone work steps must be automated as far as possible. SAP S/4HANA, the latest SAP ERP generation, offers all basic functions of the different business areas.


Many companies implement SAP starting with financial accounting. If you decide in favor of an all-in-one solution for all corporate divisions, we recommend the implementation of SAP S/4HANA with full functional scope. S/4HANA Finance provides extended financial functions for your finance and accounting tasks. This enables you to considerably simplify and accelerate your financial accounting processes and, consequently, reduce time and costs.


As an SAP partner with "Gold" status, FIS and its employees have more than 25 years of experience and know-how in integrating SAP into accounting. An experienced and professional team of consultants will assist you during the national or international implementation of SAP S/4HANA Finance. During implementation, FIS assists you from the first analysis steps and project preparations to the go-live of the system and offers continued and competent support. Whether or not you already use SAP software in other corporate divisions – FIS will also provide the interfaces and integration scenarios required for the connection to any non-SAP systems.

Efficient financial processes using SAP S/4HANA Finance

But why would you implement SAP S/4HANA Finance? The trendsetting in-memory database technology considerably simplifies the central processes and functions of finance and accounting. At the same time, the system offers numerous evaluation options based on real-time data and the combination of data from heterogeneous sources such as controlling, accounting and liquidity management. In this way, your company benefits from verifiable competitive advantages.


A user-friendly interface based on most different user roles simplifies working with S/4HANA. The real time-based HANA database can be used as a central data basis for all persons involved. This means that both the financial accounting and analytical controlling departments use the same document. Manual coordination is no longer required and financial reporting can be executed automatically at the same time – taking into account international regulations.
