Background


As mentioned Supply Chain Execution was the best entry point for a long
-
term cooperation


hence the integration of Descartes GLN


Today’s supply chains are interconnected and in many ways the
availability of shipment information is not much less important than the
physical movement of the goods


Both on the shipper and LSP side there are systems depending on
execution status information to trigger the next step


However, in a highly diversified and a fragmented subcontractor
landscape this information proves hard to come by


Speed of onboarding & data exchange with new customers is critical


Now there is an option right out of the box for SAP users


use the
infrastructure and intelligence of one of the leading business networks for
supply chain execution

Descartes and SAP Information Interchange
-

Value
Proposition



Why should you spend the time and money to integrate with each
individual business partner if there is a better way?


SAP and Descartes provide that through our partnership because SAP
and Descartes customers can now share mission
-
critical information
easily using SAP II technology


no need for SAP
users
to change
anything (e.g. Transportation & Event Management)


Descartes and SAP II also support feeds from non
-
SAP systems which
will really make the offering attractive for mixed SAP/OEM offerings


SAP has the muscle to extend execution and status management to
mobile devices and HANA In
-
Memory
-
Technology to make network
-
relevant system decisions at a blink of on eye and communicate to end
users just as quickly.

Summary


Descartes is an SAP Business Partner according to very stringent
Partner Edge Certification


Descartes GLN is the leading logistics execution status exchange
solution in the
cloud


Like in social networks (e.g. LinkedIn) indirect business partner
information can be processed (connection of a connection)


Jointly, we offer integration out
-
of
-
box to SAP Supply Chain Execution
Systems for a huge number of business partners with multiple roles
(ocean & air carriers, truckers, warehouse operators, shippers,
importers, customs authorities, etc.)


Information Interchange enables customers to maintain a single,
universal connector to their SAP applications without having to invest in
extensive mapping to support multiple industry standards
