Key issues

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.
