While deploying SAP ERP in an automotive environment you recognize certain short comings pretty quickly – either from a functional or from a user experience and user handling perspective. We have developed and support SAP add-on’s in the form of Cockpits and user exits to give your ERP system additional functionality and bridge the gaps you found.
Typical add-on’s are in the Logistics area with inbound Monitoring, Shipping, Container Management and Logistics Execution, Pricing or cumulative quantities. In the Manufacturing & Operations area with Quality and Plant Maintenance and in the Compliance & Governance area with Nota Fiscal Electronica (electronic invoicing in Mexico or Brazil).
Our solutions team constantly reviews industry and customer requirements and builds out our roadmap accordingly.
