Comprehensive and Secure SAP Integration
Connect any manufacturing plant floor system to SAP using a variety of native SAP integration technologies. Regardless of SAP connectivity technology used, NLINK connects to SAP as an RFC client using a standard SAP userid. All security authorization, authentication and access privileges are controlled by SAP just like any other user. No transactional data is stored permanently in NLINK, data is received, business logic applied and then the processed data is sent on its way.

  • Automatically create SAP work notifications from equipment monitoring
  • Automatically upload scanned data from a production line to SAP
  • Provide simple "pre-MES" capabilities to the plant floor before purchasing an MES
  • and much more ...
