Listen to SAP Insider’s own Ken Murphy, SAPinsider, in a recent interview with John Southard, C.H. Guenther & Son, an early adopter of SAP Transportation Management (SAP TM) 8.0, and Bill King, SAP, about how both shippers and Logistics Service Providers are leveraging international and domestic freight best practices as a way to reduce total cost of SAP ownership.
The discussion offers a brief overview of SAP Transportation Management (TM) functionality with a focus on how it enables an organization to maximize their return opportunities for transportation costs.
Listen here and ask yourself these questions as you listen in on the conversation:
1. Are you capturing the opportunities for consolidation across overlaps between domestic and international transport?
2. Can you engage interactively with trading partners in a secure and integrated environment?
3. Do you have optimal transparency into the status of your transportation operations?
4. Is your accounts payable system integrated with freight cost management?
These are the big challenges facing SAP customers, if our research is any indication. SAP customers are especially looking for decision support data for analysis, best practices in supplier collaboration, optimal system integration, and deeper transparency across the order to delivery process.
If you're facing similar challenges - or if your answer is “NO” to any of those questions – I'd like to invite you to join us in Las Vegas for more than 20 sessions addressing logistics best practices and optimization. You can view the program at Logistics & SCM, PLM, Manufacturing, and Procurement 2013.
Hope to see you in Las Vegas,
