Wesupply.com announces the launch of WiN Connect for use with SAP(R) ERP.
WiN Connect is an On Demand, low risk, quick to deploy solution that securely connects supply chain trading partners to SAP(R) ERP regardless of their own system, protocol or message standards.
WiN Connect provides a standard, configurable iDoc based connector from the Wesupply intelligent Network (WiN) into any SAP(R) ERP system extending an enterprise-based implementation to a truly network centric one that interoperates with the systems of trading partners.
It enables On Demand Electronic Trading to transmit transactions such as PO's, Acknowledgements, ASN's, Invoices, Forecasts and Inventory levels beyond SAP(R) ERP across an entire supply chain. This enables secure, collaborative, network based Supply Chain Planning and Execution with underlying intelligent alerting and supply chain metric analysis.
"In most cases, companies use On Demand Supply Chain Management to create extensions around their existing supply chain IT investments or to replace select modules that manage external processes" says Nari Viswanathan, Research Director of Supply Chain and Logistics at Aberdeen(1).
WiN Connect can be up and running in less than 60 days to help facilitate innovative processes with internal and external trading partners such as:
- Collaborative Demand Planning
- Network Inventory Visibility
- Inter Plant Supply
- Off Shore Manufacturing
- Replenishment Planning
- Sales and Operations Planning

- Collaborative Order Management
- Delivery Management
- Integrated Goods Inwards
- Order Lifecycle Visibility
- Shipment Tracking
- Web Order Entry
- Kanban and Vendor Managed Inventory

"WiN Connect helps them leverage their existing ERP investment and allows them to rapidly deliver customer and supply chain innovation".
