CHALLENGE

CHALLENGE

Our customer turned to us for quite tricky three-way integration of the SAP TM system with third-party solutions.

SOLUTION

SOLUTION

Our team integrated SAP TM with PTV, a geographical service provider, on the one side and with two telematics solutions, FleetBoard and Dynafleet, on the other.

Project Scope

Geocoding

It is a core of mapping and vehicle routing and optimization tasks. When the company enters addresses, geocoding allows converting them into longitude and latitude coordinates. Precise geographic locations on digital maps are essential data for SAP TM because it is a prerequisite for distance calculation.

Georouting

This option provides precise route planning. Defining waypoints enables detailed route creation.

Calculating toll costs

It was one more business requirement. Thanks to the toll calculation, transportation costs could be reduced significantly.

Time and distance estimation

It helps to optimize routes for any fleet size.

Map layers

Besides a range of services, PTV offers visualizing geographic data on digital maps.

FleetBoard and Dynafleet

As for FleetBoard and Dynafleet, these telematics solutions deal with defining the truck’s current location (geographical coordinates), thus ensuring excellent truck navigation. Also, the integration with these services lets users read the records of tachograph, a device that counts the vehicle’s speed and distance and monitors the driver’s activity.

RESULTS

In the course of integration processes, our team conducted the following development improvements:

Geo map component enhancements

As it is PTV, not SAP PM, that provides a map, we arranged for the objects to be displayed on the map correctly.

Transportation cockpit

It is a standard TM application for planning transportation. We have made refinements of this solution as well.

Thanks to third-party services integrated with the customer’s SAP TM and our assistance during the project, the logistics company now feels the full force of newly gained functionality:

  • geocoding
  • georouting
  • toll cost calculation
  • estimation of time and distance
  • map layers
  • tracking of actual location and drivers’ activities
This guarantees truck route optimization, getting precise traffic and truck data, planning and executing safe journeys, and some more preconditions for significant cost savings.
