The Requirements

The Vision

The Solution

In the course of the SAP roll out across the entire company, a renewal of the document management with the replacement of technologies such as SAPscript, SmartForms and other legacy systems. Along with the desire to implement uniform printer management, there was also a focus on harmonization of the global corporate identity (CI) in the group’s documents.

A central location for document design and maintenance allows for a gradual roll out to their manufacturing and sales locations worldwide. Design and production of labels of various sizes and complex business logic had a high priority in the scope of requirements for a corresponding solution.

The solution treats the data and design separately, allowing department members the ability to modify document and label designs without developer know-how. Cartago also simplified the maintenance of SAP transactions for printing with technologies such as SAPScript which provides very few options for design. Cartago was able to build on existing expertise in the transfer of business documents and made entirely new design options possible

Label design
by Cartago

CI compilance and printer managment

Success based on good partnership

Label design
by Cartago

In label design, we expanded the template editor with an increased zoom function and grid to enable the design of labels with a height of just 5 millimeters. During production Image files are pulled live from the database to support both label production and international use of business documents.

CI compilance and printer managment

The use of document rules for output control are a Cartago standard, and were used to harmonize the templates in the sense of a worldwide uniform CI. In terms of output, it was particularly important to generate the correct file format for the label printer and to provide control elements for these printer types.

Success based on good partnership

As a Cartago partner, SEAL Systems provided support through deep integration in the SAP Business Suite and powerful spooling. Central monitoring, high-performance printing of the labels and secure document control through the application of stamps and watermarks were also implemented by our Franconian partner.
