SAP Gold Partner, Navigator Business Solutions, announced the release of a pair of turnkey cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions designed specifically for manufacturers and distributors in the Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) industry.
Built on SAP’s cloud-based Business ByDesign platform and based on guidance from industry experts and Navigator’s more than 10 years experience implementing CPG solutions, the CPG Distributors and CPG Manufacturers ERP solutions are intended to serve as a complete suite-in-a-box that enables CPG companies of all sizes to adapt to rapidly changing distribution models, dynamic product lifecycles and increasingly complex global supply chains.
“Consumer product companies are dealing with rapidly changing distribution models, complex integration requirements, and a global marketplace that has demanding regulatory requirements,” noted Grant Fraser, Navigator Business Solutions’ president and CEO.
“A cloud-based ERP solution tailored for CPG needs is essential for navigating and thriving in this environment,” he added. “We designed these solutions so CPG distributors and manufacturers can easily migrate from spreadsheets and siloed applications to an all-in-one cloud ERP solution that is future-proof and ready out of the box.”
Navigator has taken SAP’s industry-leading cloud ERP platform and preconfigured solutions for multi-country distribution and deep e-commerce connectivity along with industry best practices. The secure, cloud-based ERP solutions connect every function across a CPG manufacturing or distribution business, including sales, supply chain management, omni-channel and EDI automation, RMA, quality control, accounting and analytics, among others.
According to the company, these predefined configurations include embedded support for third-party logistics and order fulfillment, 70 end-to-end integration scenarios, connectivity to 277 web services, multi-country and multi-currency support out-of-the-box, wide e-commerce and EDI integration, and support for numerous credit card payment gateways.
The CPG solutions also are configured for global compliance requirements such as the European Data Privacy requirements (GDPR/EU-DSGVO), as well as segregation of duty conflict reporting, multi-GAAP standards support, and localization for more than 22 countries.
