Compliance Labeling with SAP Integration

Sporting goods equipment manufacturer keeps moving with barcode labels that integrate with SAP and support online operations.
A major automotive aftermarket supplier needed a centralized enterprise labeling solution for its distribution centers that could integrate with SAP and utilize standalone legacy label printers. Peak-Ryzex delivered a solution that integrated with SAP and created labels on legacy printers across the enterprise.

Situation: Implement an Economical Labeling Solution that Integrates with SAP and Legacy Printers

  • Industry: Wholesale Distribution – Automotive Parts
  • Location: Northeastern United States
  • ERP System: SAP

The company needed a centralized enterprise labeling solution for its distribution centers that could integrate with SAP and create labels on standalone/legacy printers. The solution required WYSIWYG label design, revision control, secure work flow processes for label publication, historical lookup of printed labels, and integration with SAP. Installation, training, and go-live support for multiple sites were also needed.

Solution

Peak-Ryzex, as a Certified Enterprise Partner with Seagull Scientific, provided BarTender Enterprise Automation software licensing and maintenance, consulting, installation, training, and go-live support services for the company. Peak-Ryzex also provided training on document work flow handling, security control, and label design/revision control to allow the company to replace disparate labeling software in use with one – BarTender. To integrate, XML files generated by SAP were dropped to a network file folder on a VM server at headquarters.

Results

The company was able to implement a single labeling software solution while maintaining centralized control of label design, implement a secure document control process, and provide a scalable enterprise labeling solution integrated with SAP. Use of Seagull Scientific print drivers made it possible to create one label format that accommodated printing to any Windows®-compatible printer without having to import formats into SAP. The company leveraged XML as a common (and certified) approach, along with integrating SAP to other systems. The cost to implement SAP was reduced by off-loading services to Peak-Ryzex and leveraging BarTender software and its SAP-certified integration. In addition Peak-Ryzex provided a tailored front-end application leveraging BarTender to suit packing workstation requirements at disparate sites that were not directly controlled by SAP. Other benefits include:

  • Enabled additional standalone printing solutions not integrated with SAP by using BarTender software
  • Provided printing from standalone workstations using custom front-end applications and customized databases
  • Peak-Ryzex supported implementation through site consultation and support
