We are proud to announce that the first ever SAP Transportation Management 9.0 customer just went live after a smooth implementation phase using SAP Visual Business 2.0 as a core component for its use case. The customer is based in China and uses the geo-map to track its vehicles.
Key success factors:
- SAP Visual Business has an open GIS interface: highest priority for the customer was to use its own map content. In case SAP TM would have integrated a geo-map component from a specific vendor (like NOKIA HERE, ESRI, others), the customer would not have used SAP TM -> thanks to the Visual Business colleagues all obstacles were removed (coordinate formats, REST services, …)!
- SAP Visual Business is flexible: customer had specific requirements not covered by the SAP TM standard, which were implemented smoothly
Looks like there is more to come with other customers already in the line.
