SAP ERP configuration

SAP R/3 screenThe best-run companies run SAP, they say, but relatively few of them exploit the system to its full extent.  This is particularly true of the Foreign Trade components, which few consultants understand.  Honeycourt has proven expertise in this area, gained over a wide variety of countries, industries and business scenarios, and can optimise the system to meet most requirements.

We are SAP specialists, able to configure your system to make best use of existing functionality, and/or develop additional functionality for outputs or processes not provided in the standard system, without the need for third-party add-ons or legacy software.

Standard functionality

Now that their GTS system is available, SAP are not planning to further develop the Foreign Trade functionality in ERP (formerly R/3); however the existing functionality is already rich and worth exploiting.  For example:

  • Intrastat - making sure that free goods, credits and returns are reported correctly, to avoid audit discrepancies.
  • Preference - taking advantage of concessions and agreements between country groups to minimise import duties and taxes.
  • Exports - declaring the correct Customs Procedure Code, Commodity Code and Country of Origin for every item.
  • Routes - proposing appropriate Customs Offices, Modes of Transport and delivery dates for each shipment.
  • Excise Duty management - determining liability and calculating excise duty for goods movements associated with Tax Warehouses.
  • Documentation - ensuring that the right documents and messages are generated in every situation.

If you run SAP ERP, you have already paid for the above functionality and more.  So get the best value from your system - call Honeycourt to discuss the possibilities.

Interfaces and developments

KeyboardWe have extensive experience of the main ERP supply chain modules (SD, MM, LE), and a thorough understanding of the integration with FI/CO and the Business Warehouse reporting system.  Using SAP's built-in standard iDoc technology, we can design and build interfaces to and from your ERP system to allow integration with legacy or third-party add-ons.
