Beirut, Lebanon, 2010/06/08 - SNS, the leading provider of supply chain solutions in the Gulf and Middle-East, in partnership with S&T Serbia, is proud to announce the go-live of the integration solution between Nestlé SAP ERP and Milsped’s Infor WMS in Beirut.
Milsped who is the largest 3PL provider in Serbia has been S&T Serbia’s WMS client for more than 5 years now. They have recently gained Nestlé as a new storer and the latter have requested the electronic integration of their SAP ERP system with the Infor Warehouse Management System running at Milsped. SNS’ previous integration project with Nestlé Middle-East and their strong partnership with S&T Serbia made them the ideal provider for such a service.
The integration built on the Boomi EAI platform is based on the transmission of files of type EDIFACT over an AS2 connection between SAP and Infor WMS. The project went live in less 3 months from kick-off and consisted of 13 different touch-points including ASN import/export, Shipment Order Import/Export, Adjustment Export, Hold Management, Stock reconciliations and others. The full project was completed remotely by an SNS technical resource in Beirut.
With more than 1,200 messages exchanged on a daily basis, the integration solution guarantees Nestlé and Milsped high document processing speed, minimal data entry errors, elimination of paper and email trails, minimal user intervention and full systems synchronization.
“SNS has and will always be a strong business partner to S&T Serbia”, said Olja Lapcevic, ERP and WMS consultant at S&T. “Their professionalism, in-depth expertise in integration and strong knowledge of warehousing operations provide them with the ability to successfully complete any project they are awarded; the Milsped/Nestlé project was stable in just 2 days after the go-live.”
“We are very pleased to be working once again with S&T Serbia”, said Shady Hanna, Technical Lead at SNS. “Having already offered our integration services to Nestlé in the Middle-East, we are very happy to also cater for their needs in the European market and with such a large 3PL player as Milsped.”
