JUNIQ®

Innovative end-to-end processes in SAP S/4HANA

If your company uses SAP, SAP S/4HANA is the tool of choice for shaping the digital transformation and operating successfully on the market in the future. Where S/4HANA can only map your processes incompletely - especially for processing between suppliers and automotive manufacturers - JUNIQ is the perfect complement for you.

JUNIQ closes gaps in SAP S/4HANA

The digital and innovative SAP S/4HANA platform does not completely map specific processes, such as EDI-based logistics processing between suppliers and car manufacturers - keyword OEM processes.

Our process-oriented logistics solution JUNIQ closes these gaps. It is based on the latest SAP technology and is designed exclusively for operation with SAP S/4HANA. With this add-on, you are ideally equipped to meet the challenges of digital transformation.

When you benefit from JUNIQ

Mapping special OEM requirements in your SAP S/4HANA is not trivial. With the help of the JUNIQ add-on, you can address this.

You are a subcontractor to OEMs or Tier 1 suppliers and must meet specific process requirements.

You don't want to complicate your systems with numerous Z-programs, put less effort into programming activities or react quickly to changing requirements of your customers.

You work with SAP S/4HANA

You need to create labels at different points in your process, also using different systems such as the ERP, SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM), or Transportation Management (TM).

Challenges

Do you recognize your own daily challenges in the following? Then JUNIQ is the right solution for you!

  • Meet different OEM requirements: Every OEM has its own requirements for your processes. Even if these are roughly based on standards such as VDA or Odette, they deviate in detail in many places so that the processes fit the OEMs' internal systems. As a supplier, you are responsible for mapping every single process requirement in your system.

  • Reduce programming efforts: Since SAP S/4HANA cannot map customer requirements in detail, you have to create them independently for your systems - often through your own programming, so-called Z programs. This is not only a major challenge when setting up all processes. Every change to the OEM process requirements must be mapped at great expense.

  • Consider deviations: Things get complicated when you are confronted with conflicting claims: For example, if you manufacture in batches, but your customer does not want batch delivery, but a second customer does. Mapping such requirements to your processes in your system represents a considerable effort.

  • Simplify label printing: Suppliers to OEMs have to meet a wide range of very detailed requirements for labels. Creating and printing these individually over and over again takes a lot of time and can usually only be accomplished with a great deal of programming effort.

 

Advantages

1

Latest SAP technology

With JUNIQ, you work with the latest SAP technologies with all their advantages over predecessor solutions. These include SAP Fiori, Core Data Services, ABAP Objects and Clean Code for ABAP.

2

Better implementation of industry requirements

Where SAP's new ERP software suite has process gaps for very specific process requirements, such as EDI-supported logistics processing between suppliers and car manufacturers, JUNIQ will support you: end-to-end scenarios for OEM processes are available in it - from delivery call-off to shipping message.

3

Fast results

The OEM processes from JUNIQ are delivered as a template. You simply have to copy this into your system afterwards and can use it directly. You can easily set changes or rules for the process or its sub-processes yourself.

4

Simple licensing model

You receive the OEM process(es) you need from us and do not have to license any additional base component or the like. If the process is extended or changed by the OEM, we make this change for you at no extra charge.

5

Independently design your own label

New label types can be designed quickly and conveniently using the JUNIQ Print Engine, a special SAP Fiori app, without any programming knowledge. In the app, the necessary data fields are simply assigned to the fields of the label.

6

Simplify forms and documents

JUNIQ simplifies the creation of labels and other forms (invoices, delivery bills, shipping documents) not only for OEM processes, but also for intralogistics, production and their administration. With the help of the JUNIQ Print Engine, you can either create your own labels or have us create templates for you.

Functions

The OEM processes in JUNIQ contain complete end-to-end scenarios from delivery call-off to shipping message to invoice or credit note:

  • EDI communication inbound: Regardless of the data format, JUNIQ ensures that all information from and to the customer is transferred to your system correctly and according to the rules. Every OEM process you handle with JUNIQ contains precise mapping specifications for data processing in your system.

  • EDI communication outbound: JUNIQ supplements process-specific or fundamentally missing data in the outgoing messages ASN (XML) and INVOICE (IDoc).

  • Internal processing: The JUNIQ OEM process follows each step of your customer's process requirement. It ensures that all the information required for this is included. This can, for example, concern a batch output or the triggering of a mail dispatch if a specific person is to be informed about the current status.

  • Print with the JUNIQ Print Engine: Each OEM process also contains precise specifications for the required labels and shipping documents. These can be easily created, checked and printed using the JUNIQ Print Engine. You can make changes yourself without any major programming effort. This also supports, for example, chess control or multiple printing.

Easy creation of labels

A highlight of the add-on is the JUNIQ Print Engine, with which you as a supplier can create labels and other forms, whether for intralogistics or for production, easily, quickly and securely and manage them centrally and transparently. You can choose to print any label from SAP S/4HANA, SAP EWM or from SAP TM. The labels are created via Adobe Forms by default, alternatively Zebra ZPL and SAP Smartforms forms are also possible.

The JUNIQ Print Engine also supports you beyond OEM processes with easily configurable labels. We are also happy to support you in the development of individual labels for your own process requirements.
