What is SAP Flexible Real Estate?

The SAP Flexible Real Estate Management module, also known as REFX, is included in your core SAP installation. This module gives you a triple view of master data (Land Usage Management or the Legal view, Architectural view or the Geographical view and Usage view or the Financials view). These views let you collect different data and easily create and manage all types of real estate objects.

The power of Flexible Real Estate is its integration with SAP other modules such as Financials (FI), Controlling (CO), Fixed Assets (AA), Project Systems (PS), Plant Maintenance (PM), Service Management (SM), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Business Warehouse (BW) and any external system such as ESRI or Geospatial Information System, AutoCAD or Drawing systems and Document Management or DMS.
