Welcome to another edition of the ‘What’s new in SAP Business Network for Supply Chain’ series of blog posts where I discuss the new features delivered with every major release.

While you can get a full overview of the 2308 release items for SAP Business Network for Supply Chain under the following link, I wanted to focus on two that I consider especially great additions to the solution.

1) Additional Customizations for Ship Notice Excel Template for Upload/Download

With this feature we are enhancing the extensibility of SAP Business Network for Supply Chain by introducing new customizations for the ship notice Excel template for upload/download. These customizations include providing alternate names and translations for standard attributes, allowing users to hide optional standard attributes, defining custom attributes to be required, and others.

The expected benefits are:

  • Providing more flexibility to customers when customizing the ship notice Excel template for their suppliers

  • Simplifying the generation of ship notices through a mass upload for suppliers

2) Quality Inspection Report. 

Buyers who enabled SAP Business Network Supply Chain Collaboration, quality add-on and suppliers collaborating with them on quality processes will have access to a new quality inspection report type.

The quality inspection report aggregates information from multiple quality inspections and generates a spreadsheet in Excel format with multiple sheets:

  • Inspections – Lists general information about each quality inspection in the report.

  • Single Result – Records quality inspection characteristics containing multiple samples.

  • Summarized Recording – Records quality inspection characteristics containing a single sample.

  • Attachments – List of attachments for each quality inspection.

This great thing about this feature is that buyers and suppliers will be able to get their quality inspections information in a report where they will see all key information in one place.
