Published on

In today’s consumer-driven marketplace, the quality of a company’s supply chain is directly linked to the company’s brand and image. If organizations are unable to react quickly to product recalls, they risk breaching regulations, hefty fines and impact to their reputation. Poor visibility of the supply chain will quickly hamper an organization’s attempts to identify and resolve product issues, which calls for a solution that enables visibility through end to end process or Supply Chain traceability.

A best practice solution based on the SAP Product Lifecycle Management (SAP PLM) application, the SAP Global Batch Traceability application and HCL’s Global Packaging and Labeling (iGPL) framework can help to address these business gaps. Integration between SAP ERP and SAP Global Batch Traceability provides consolidated records for end-to-end batch traceability.
This white paper will help you discover how combining upstream product lifecycle management with downstream track-and-trace capabilities will enable organizations to protect their customers, brand and profitability.
