Requests for products are often handled manually outside the ERP solution, leading to no real-time overview, input errors and delays.
Adding products to SAP is often seen as the
greatest hurdle in the product development
process; getting a product ready for production
can be a complicated, manual task.
Communication between departments is
essential to ensure the right materials and
production methods are used, but this process
is often managed manually, leading to mistakes
and lost production time.
Aimed primarily at Production & Product
Development, Boyum Cloud Build removes
this issue by providing a clear framework for
each department, guiding them through each step
in the process, and ensuring that products are added
to the system efficiently and correctly.
