NLINK ADC TO SAP SOLUTION FUNCTIONAL HIGHLIGHTS
The NLINK ADC to SAP Solution comes with a wide array of built-in functionality that’s simply not available with other approaches:
No CodingThe NLINK ADC to SAP Solution is a configuration-based system. Choose from a rich set of pre-built SAP bar coding transactions that can be extended, modified and managed without writing any custom code.
Non-InvasiveAbsolutely nothing is installed into the SAP landscape and no additional SAP components or modules are needed to make it work.
No FlashingNo need to re-flash or re-program your data collection hardware when a change is made to a SAP barcoding screen or when the underlying transaction business logic is changed. In fact, nothing is installed onto the barcode scanner – completely eliminating the need to maintain and manage the scanning devices.
User ProfilesUser Profiles allow you to present your SAP barcoding users with specific menu options that provide access only to certain SAP barcoding screens and transactions necessary for their actual role or work assignment.
User ManagementThe NLINK ADC to SAP Solution supports a variety of sophisticated user management modes. Users logon to the barcode scanners using their domain user-id and password. The NLINK ADC to SAP Solution can then support connecting to SAP with a single centralized SAP user-id, or it can simply pass-through the user’s logon user-id directly to SAP, or it can fully support SAP’s Single Sign On (SSO) methods. It’s completely your choice.
Label PrintingThe NLINK ADC to SAP Solution supports both simple (low volume) and sophisticated (high-volume, fault tolerant, enterprise wide) barcode label printing. Customized barcode labels, that source data from SAP, can be printed to designated networked barcode label printers directly from the gun if required.
The NLINK ADC to SAP Solution is a mission-critical addition to your existing enterprise infrastructure by including:
Store and ForwardUseful when SAP barcode transactions are critical and connectivity to the SAP system is not always reliable or for use with unmanned data collection equipment (e.g. raster scanners).
Transaction SchedulerIn addition to processing SAP barcoding transactions in an event driven manner (like when a bar code is scanned), transactions can also be batched or scheduled to be posted to the SAP system periodically.
Combo Transaction SupportUse SAP barcoding transactions that meet the need of the users. One logical data collection activity can be made to trigger multiple transactions in the SAP system.
Management ModuleThe NLINK ADC to SAP Solution comes with a built-in sophisticated management console, centralizing and greatly simplifying maintenance and administration for the IT department.
