Flexibility and function

Novacura Flow for SAP ERP systems

SAP systems such as ECC and 4HANA are solid, stable ERP solutions. But they are also very complex, and it can be hard to choose where to spend your time and implementation budget. When you add Novacura Flow to your toolbox, you don’t have to choose between functionality and flexibility. Flow makes it easier to use all the great features of SAP ERP systems and adapt them to your unique business needs.

Capability without customization

Capabilities without customization

One of the issues we’ve heard from SAP customers is that updates cause big changes to the system. And anytime your business system releases an update, it puts your ERP customizations at risk, because they might not be compatible with the new version. But with Flow, you don’t have to worry about SAP system updates affecting your processes, workflows or interfaces. That’s because Flow isn’t coded into your ERP: it sits on top of your system in a place we like to call the Novacura Flow Layer. This means your critical business processes are preserved, no matter what happens with your business systems. Learn more about the Novacura Flow Layer.

The power of connections

The power of Flow lies in how easy it is to connect all your systems together. When you have access to the processes and data from SAP systems, your other business systems, and every piece of business software you use all in one place, you can do almost anything: customer self-service portals, automated fault reporting, preventive maintenance, automated stock handling. Connect your MES, WMS, ERP, distribution, customer portal, supplier portal: whatever you want. See a list of all the Novacura connectors.

SAP ERP systems are very powerful. They are also very complex. Support can be slow, so to get all the benefits of the system, you have to figure out how to do things yourself. But Flow makes it easy to manage and control everything, so you don’t have to depend on tech support or IT to get things done. Create steered workflows that guide workers through critical processes—then turn those workflows into simple, user-friendly apps that your workers can use on any device, online or offline.
