This business function and its associated enterprise service bundle enable exchange of logistics-relevant information, such as inbound deliveries, outbound deliveries and data related to the movement of goods within a tracking system. They offer replication of product, customer, and supplier master data from SAP ERP to the external warehouse management system.

This business function allows you to:

  • Use enterprise services to achieve an easier and more straightforward method of integration than ever before

  • Upgrade to SAP ERP or an external warehouse management system without disrupting the integration process

  • Reduce time, effort and implementation costs involved in integrating an external warehouse management system into the SAP landscape

This results in enhanced support of the customer supply and warehouse replenishment processes, triggering recent stock updates in the ERP system. In addition, the accuracy and consistency of stock data streamlines internal processes by:

  • Reducing error processing

  • Reducing handling of unexpected goods receipts

  • Avoiding pick denials in outbound processing because of stock inconsistencies between systems
