Your opportunity to Shape our Future: Multi-enterprise Processes on Packaging Agreements and Serialization

Collaborating closely with other companies is essential for your business success – and optimizing end-to-end processes is extremely important to achieve this.

Therefore, the SAP Customer Influence program is an excellent way for you as a customer or partner to get early insights into new SAP product developments. Your feedback, input, and ideas at the early stages of development are highly appreciated. This gives us at SAP the opportunity to understand what our customers need and want.

As part of the Product Management team for Discrete Industries I would like to introduce two relevant use cases to you. The vision is to help our customers to optimize these multi-enterprise processes:

Collaborative Management of Packaging Agreements and Data Sheets based on Packaging Standards

Why? Streamline the management of packing definitions with your partners. Obtain a single-source of truth for packaging agreements and load-units for your whole company and your partners. Save time by digitizing and standardizing a diverse and complex process.

What?
Collaborating jointly on how to pack material for deliveries. Creating a commonly accepted packaging agreement that can be printed as packaging data sheets or distributed as packaging instructions to back-end systems. Interested in learning more about this topic? Find out more details  here!

Streamline cross-enterprise provisioning and exchange of serial numbers

Why?
Enabling multi-party business across companies and leverage SAP’s Business Network on-boarding within the end-to-process of serial number management. Business users of different companies will save time and money interacting in an open business environment / ecosystem: foundation for enhanced cross-company business interaction.

What?
Provide a cloud-based collaborative solution between brand owners and suppliers/partners to provision and exchange serial numbers for use within the overall serialization end-to-end process. The solution will interoperate with respective brand owner and supplier back-end systems that manage serial number related set-up and transaction processing.
