Solutions for Accounting, Controlling and Human Resources

SAP is the basis for accounting, controlling and human resources


Based on SAP’s ERP 6.0, Porsche Informatik provides a highly integrated solution for financial accounting and controlling, whereby we customise the software to meet the specific requirements of retail, wholesale and financial services. We are currently working on implementing our roadmap, so that we can deploy the new S4 HANA solution at Porsche Holding in future.

SAP FI/CO offers far more than just standard functionalities of an accounting application: This highly integrated solution handles

  • General ledger accounting
  • Accounts receivable
  • Accounts payable
  • Asset accounting
  • Cost types and cost centre accounting
  • Internal orders
  • Operating and market segment results
  • and much more

The system is very flexible and can be adapted to the individual needs of users. SAP FI/CO has interfaces to all other systems of the Porsche organisation that generate postings, and also supplies data for a range of other systems. SAP FI/CO is highly integrated with SAP payroll accounting and offers interfaces to the MIK management information system and SAP SEM, the system for corporate reporting.


SAP HR is a very powerful human resources management solution, highly integrated with the financial accounting and controlling modules of SAP.

SAP HR is deployed in the Porsche Holding Salzburg companies for invoicing, time management and organisation management. We also process payroll accounting for Austrian retailers via SAP HR.

The advantage of the solution is the high level of integration with other Porsche Informatik systems used in the Porsche Holding and retail companies. In addition to automatic posting of payroll accounting, in SAP financial accounting and controlling there are also interfaces to other systems (e.g. CROSS).

Central operation of the system means that users do not need to concern themselves with software updates or meeting legal requirements.

Invoicing and Invoice Control

Intelligent support for incoming and outgoing invoices


FlowER supports controlling and approving of incoming invoices in accordance with the workflow defined by the Porsche organisation. The system is controlled via business cases that specify the workflow participants and account assignment.

The most important functions:

  • Workflow control via business cases
  • Dual control principle
  • Reporting functions for evaluating invoices in the system
  • Delegation management
  • Posting (online / batch)
  • Daily master data replication from SAP

FlowER provides clear and well-arranged organisation of invoice control as well as a complete overview of all incoming invoices in the company. Additionally, all incoming invoices are immediately archived.


Within the Porsche Holding, SOFA (other invoicing) is a complementary system used by approx. 30 companies for producing invoices, that cannot be generated via our retail and wholesale systems – for example rental payments for real estate and invoices from Porsche Informatik.

Parametrisation of business cases allows intelligent invoices, making the system simple to use, without users needing in-depth accounting knowledge. SOFA is very flexible thanks to many customizing possibilities: New companies can be added without additional programming, and can immediately start invoicing. The adaptations necessary for new countries are also minimal – the settings can be made on-site by the responsible key user.
