SAP is the leading provider of business software solutions, and its enterprise modules have been found to improve processes worldwide. In 1972, SAP introduced its innovative business solutions, which capitalized on the organized methods that were already present in companies. SAP provides Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, which leading IT Solution providers are implementing to expand their capital and construct considerable business models. One of the most helpful SAP ERP solutions is SAP Financial Accounting and Controlling (FICO), which is a module that stores transaction data.
Compared to Oracle, BAAN, and many others, SAP FICO continuously maintains a lead in user adoption because of its strong compatibility with other software and hardware. In addition, it can integrate with various other significant modules, such as Inventory, Production, HR, etc.
There are two sections in SAP FICO — SAP Finance (FI) and SAP Controlling (CO).
The core module of SAP Financial Accounting (FI) is responsible for overseeing all financial transactions for both internal and external auditing needs. General Ledger Accounting (G/L), processing of Accounts Receivable and Payable (AR/AP), and Fixed Asset Accounting make up its essential elements (AA). Along with Bank Accounting, Funds Management, Legal consolidation, Special Purpose Ledger, Travel Management, etc., SAP Financial Accounting (FI) also includes these functions.
The SAP Controlling (CO) module on the other hand enables the management of the company by giving them operational insights and important decision-making data. It is the perspective of internal accounting. It essentially totals all the organization’s operational costs and expenditures, empowering management to make critical business decisions. The CO module largely focuses on managerial accounting elements relating to internal users, such as contribution margins, profitability, information on profit centres, cost centres, etc.Cost Element Accounting, Cost Controlling, Cost Center Accounting, Internal Orders, Activity Based Costing, Product Cost Controlling, Profitability Analysis, Profit Center Accounting, etc. are among the components of the CO (Controlling) module.
Together, the FI and CO modules were built to show a company’s business transactions in a manner that complies with the requirements of internal & external reporting. The system includes the necessary components to route and report various businesses across many nations using multiple monetary scenarios. After the software’s initial setup, purchasing, sales, distribution, and materials management can be integrated into the system. In addition, it certifies the user’s ability to investigate the flow of materials, the initial transaction, and the sales order/buy order.
