SAP Smart Business for Event Management

SAP Smart Business for event management is a collection providing an overview of the most important key performance indicators for a transportation manager. It allows the transportation manager to monitor the operational transportation business based on the latest reported events including the following:

  • delays of deliveries in transit or those that arrived at customer sites with an overdue proof of delivery (POD)
  • average cycle times (time between the actual event dates and times of: when picking begins, PICKBEG, and the last event POD)
  • reporting completeness and compliance – what percentage of transports were reported and how accurate were those reports?

The transportation manager can use this ability to monitor the business to track deliveries and get insights into the business. This helps the transportation manager to spot as soon as possible anything that might need to be investigated more closely, and if necessary to correct any small issues in the operational business before they escalate.
