Germany’s retail processes specialist gicom group said that its business app, called Contract2Go, has achieved SAP certification as powered by the SAP NetWeaver technology platform. The mobile app has been proven to integrate with the SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) application, providing buyers with a mobile application for their negotiations with their suppliers.
During negotiation meetings, they can change prices and conditions with sliders and inputs to simulate purchasing data in real time up to the product level.
“We are delighted to announce the successful achievement that our Contract2Go application is now certified as powered by SAP NetWeaver,” said Stefan Hilger, co-chief executive officer (CEO), gicom. “With Contract2Go, users can enhance the business potential of their SAP solutions and open up completely new opportunities in negotiation talks.
“During negotiations, they can modify certain parameters of the negotiation talks directly on the iPad and simulate their effects, access current figures, ranges, and products and compare with previous year’s figures. In addition, a net-net calculation is possible on the iPad.”
As a result of the certified integration, Contract2Go now provides the possibility to transfer all the negotiated details of the contract automatically to SAP ERP and to send the draft contract from SAP ERP to the other party via email. Hence all terms are considered, so that the negotiation can take place without any media disruption in one place.
The SAP integration and certification centre (SAP ICC) has certified that Contract2Go 2.0 integrates with SAP NetWeaver via the SAP NetWeaver Gateway 2.0 integration scenario. It has also demonstrated capabilities of deployment as an add-on to the advanced business application programming (ABAP) language.
