SAP S/4 HANA EDI Integration

Establish end-to-end visibility of your entire procure-to-pay process through EDI integration.

SAP S/4HANA is designed for digital businesses and offers instant insights by using real-time processes, dynamics planning and analysis to provide a single source of truth. SAP S/4HANA helps to enhance company-internal collaboration networks by providing a deep level of functionality, whilst combined with a high-degree of flexibility to customise.

Why you need to integrate SAP S/4 HANA and Netix Flow

SAP S/4HANA assists businesses in enterprise processes, including order-to-cash and procure-to-pay. While SAP S/4HANA supports businesses in enterprise processes such as order-to-cash and procure-to-pay, it lacks the full capability for businesses to manage their trading relationships, thereby becoming a very expensive method for handling your EDI processes. This is where Netix Flow can help. By implementing Netix Flow, your business can harness various EDI standards and connectors to comply with trading partners’ specifications.
