One central search that integrates SAP SRM and non-SRM branch offices

Many others have tried and failed to use electronic catalogs for steel procurement in the automotive industry. The procurement solution deployed by the Stuttgart-based automobile conglomerate has cataloged steel for the first time ever and integrated its procurement into the e-procurement process. Furthermore, over the last two years, Daimler has rolled out the Heiler catalog internationally as its central procurement solution. As part of the rollout, it was necessary to integrate branch offices that did or did not deploy SAP SRM.
