Why do we need it?
Collaboration is no longer an option, but rather a necessity for conducting business – it offers the ability to communicate and act quickly with parties across the globe, or even just across your own business processes. Communicating efficiently and effectively within teams help business processes run smoothly, achieve business goals on time, and eliminate unnecessary expenses. Over the past years, great efforts have been made by SAP to increase business visibility and operational efficiency through SAP TM. However, there are still human barriers preventing these processes and lead to inefficiencies and cost.

Standard DAS vs. Westernacher DAS
Firstly, the SAP standard DAS Add-on requires SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) System in the backend and cannot be integrated with SAP Transportation Management (TM) System. However, Westernacher DAS can be integrated with SAP TM System seamlessly because it is designed in the SAP TM landscape. Freight Order status will be extracted from SAP TM System via OData protocol and displayed in the Westernacher DAS screen. After corresponding actions, a new Freight Order status will be sent back to SAP TM. The communication between systems is secured, trusted, and fast.
Secondly, Westernacher DAS can be deployed to embedded SAP Gateway Server within SAP TM, which avoids the need for an additional system to support and maintain.
Moreover, Westernacher DAS provides standard integration capabilities with SAP Systems. For instance, it can be integrated with standard SAP TM Collaboration Portal as an add-on, integrated with SAP S/4HANA Embedded TM, deployed on SAP Cloud Platform as a standalone SAP Fiori Application, or registered on SAP Fiori Launchpad.
