Supply Chain Management

SAP ERP delivers robust supply chain management (SCM) functionality to small- and medium-sized manufacturing and distribution businesses. Gain the ability to plan, manage, and control production-related processes for more effective collaboration with suppliers and customers. The SCM module helps to close the gap between supply chain planning and supply chain execution via enhanced integration within the centralized data platform. Real-time analytics provide complete transparency into the SCM functionality for a more unified warehouse environment.
