AEB solutions work hand in hand with SAP® systems. That’s why so many AEB customers turn to the winning combination of strong ERP solutions from SAP® and specialized plug-ins from AEB. Plug-ins that blend in seamlessly and elevate your ERP processes to the top tier of logistics, trade compliance, and customs management. Plug-ins from AEB transform your global trade and logistics processes into an island of calm amid the stormy seas of S/4HANA®, brownfield and greenfield releases, IT consolidation projects, and global rollouts. And that’s the way it should be: It saves your IT resources for more urgent needs.
Seamless integration of AEB software into your SAP® system
Adaptations made easy
The AEB SAP plug-ins
were developed especially for SAP® applications. They are not
traditional add-on solutions but plug-ins integrated seamlessly into your SAP®
system. AEB draws upon standardized SAP® technology such as web
services that are delivered unchanged to your SAP® system. It makes
no difference whether you’re running ERP ECC® or S/4HANA®.
SAP® is virtually an industry standard in many sectors, and it’s nearly impossible to gain a competitive advantage merely by using standardized software from the market leader. But if you enhance your SAP® system in strategically important areas with highly specialized and flexible solutions, you gain a leg up on your competitors. AEB cloud-based software offers solutions that can help turn your global trade and logistics processes into economic engines.
All AEB software featuring SAP® plug-ins can be implemented without any modifications to your system. The integration is achieved exclusively through standard SAP® user exits and customer exits. This makes it easy to update both your SAP® system and the AEB software. All development objects created under ABAP objects are generated in the AEB namespace. You also have the option of using Business Add-Ins (BAdI) to individually adapt your system.
Much more important than the integration of data and systems is the integration of workflows. What AEB wants to know is: Which features do users need, and when and where are they needed? Because that is precisely where they should be available. The aim is to make it possible for people who spend most of their day working in an SAP® system to generate a customs declarations from that same interface – even if that function is carried out in the background by AEB cloud services.
Global trade and logistics is dominated by highly dynamic business processes. Customs and export management is subject to changing laws and regulations: Free trade agreements and preference entitlements change, and customs systems undergo regular updates. In logistics, external supply chain partners – and their IT systems – also change, and these changes must be taken into account. The requirements and formats for shipping labels, loading lists, and EDI messages are subject to modification, for example. You don’t need to worry about any of these changes, because the AEB solutions come equipped with their own data and content service. If sanctions lists or export regulations change, for example, AEB updates them for you in the software. You benefit by having software that is always up to date and efficient, helps keep you compliant, and is easy to maintain. This saves your IT department the trouble of taking care of routine tasks.
Many companies are currently pondering a migration to SAP S/4HANA®, the company’s latest generation of ERP. Here, too, AEB software offers seamless integration. Amid the turbulence of a realigned ERP, this creates an island of calm where your global trade and logistics systems continue to run normally.
