ZF Lemförder SA Relies on Magic Software’s Prebuilt Connector for Quick, Reliable SAP ERP Integration

"We selected Magic xpi because of all the time it saves us. Its prebuilt SAP ERP connector allowed us to work quickly without deep technical knowledge and its simple web services connectivity enabled easy integration with our local production system."

Why ZF Lemförder SA invested in business integration

ZF Lemförder’s production facilities operate non-stop 24 hours a day, 5 days a week, producing parts for 350 cars per day. The Just-in-Time Just-in-Sequence (JIT/JIS) supplier of auto parts to BMW SA was faced with the challenge of migrating its local ERP system to the corporate SAP ERP system. To continue its seamless operations meant that the company also had to replicate the automatic exchange of order and production data that had previously existed between its ERP and its local production system.

 

Why Magic fit the bill

Magic xpi is used as the hub for the seamless exchange of client and production information and processes between ZF Lemförder‘s corporate SAP system, based in Germany, and its local production system. Customer order details including bills of material, planned assembly dates and vehicle details are received via SAP, collected by Magic xpi and then sent to the local production system. After the parts are assembled, data is sent via Magic xpi to the SAP ERP to activate internal processes.
