SAP S/4HANA Logistics

Redesign and renew your supply chain with SAP S/4HANA

SAP S/4HANA revolutionizes the ERP paradigm in dramatically improving performance and productivity. First the availability of real-time data leads to better decision making in production, inventory management, delivery, and so forth. Secondly the Fiori interface provides a specialized environment dedicated to the expertise of each user.

Embrasse the Exponential Supply Chain

Disruptions of the supply chain are multiple and occur frequently. Order cancellation and changes in dates and quantities either from customers or vendors require an agile supply chain to handle these changes on short notice.

At the heart of the supply chain is the information system that gather data, analyse them, and distribute them to all involved parties. If the pulse of the ERP heart is not rapid enough, it cannot sustain the relationships between the parties and the supply chain is at stake as issues are not properly solved on-time.

Finally the amount of data that has to be handled is booming for two main reasons:

  • The lot size of one
  • The Internet of Things

Both create large volume of data within the supply chain. Under such constraints standard ERPs simply fail to provide information from across the enterprise in real-time.

That is where SAP S/4HANA makes a difference. It can handle large volume of data making processes more efficient, and achieving a better productivity.
