Interfaces for Continuous Processes
Linking systems is the key to error-free quotation processing and production. You can do this using the bi-directional interfaces to specialized systems, e.g. for CAD, MES, CRM or other systems used within a group of companies.
Various production control programs can be used directly with data for waste optimization, production planning, and production control. Parts lists and work plans are generated automatically, for example, and utilized directly from procurement right through to palletizing.
Designs which are not already stored as standard designs are created directly in your CAD system. A bi-directional interface offers support in the form of predefined dimensions, material selection, designations, and much more. In addition, used resources in the return and other product costing and tool buying details are transferred using our “Tooling Cockpit” software extension.
Integrated sales, procurement and production planning is essential in today’s highly competitive market. Our VCPowerPack provides the SAP Supply Chain Management software with detailed information about your products. VCPowerPack enables data driven decision making to ensure the most cost-efficient delivery to your end customer.
Transport & Logistics Optimization
VCPowerPack allows you to optimize your logistics options by considering:
- Palletizing scenarios
- Warehousing and available storage options
VCPowerPack enables integration and data exchange to third-party logistics providers and warehouse to further enable end to end supply and demand management processes.
By combining our VCPowerPack with the SAP Sales Cloud from the C/4 portfolio, we increase functionality. Quotations generated in the Sales Cloud can benefit from the advantages of the variant configuration during pricing for a faster, more accurate quote. You can also use the specialized CRM functions in the sales process.
