SAP GBT - Full insight into the chain

Logistic and production processes are becoming increasingly complex. How will you ascertain the origin, current location, and quality of products? SAP Global Batch Traceability (GBT) makes all movements and relevant features transparent, from raw material to packed product.

SAP GBT enables an effective and efficient analysis of complex chains. The batch management system does this by linking data from different sources and bringing them together in one system. Organizations have access to a single version of the truth. Using a powerful and fast search engine, users may, for example, quickly trace and recall poor quality products.

Are you also facing one or more of these questions?

  • How do I make an entire batch of genealogy transparent within the supply chain?
  • How do I integrate relevant data from multiple systems?
  • How do I identify the missing information?
  • How do I trace multiple batches simultaneously with as few actions as possible?

SAP GBT provides the answers
