Overview

Overview

Product Features

No Coding



Custom coding does not belong on the Manufacturing Plant Floor! The NLINK Product Suite is a configuration-based system with absolutely no custom coding required.

Zero Footprint



No custom ABAP and no additonal SAP Modules required. The NLINK Product Suite does not require anything at all to be installed into the SAP Landscape.

Rapid Deployment



The NLINK Product Suite can be installed and deployed in minutes. Once the first manufacturing site is operational rolling out additional sites requires moving a single file.

Store & Forward



When SAP is not available, the NLINK Product Suite spools transactional data and stores it locally. When SAP comes back up, data is posted to SAP in a FIFO fashion, once and once only.

Layered Security



Connect to the Plant Floor Systems, Applications and Devices using their appropriate secure protocols. Connect to SAP via the same secure protocols that SAP users already employ. Layer additional security as needed.

SAP Certified



The NLINK Product Suite is SAP Certified for S/4HANA and has been continuously SAP Certified since 1999. Previous SAP Certifications include Powered by SAP NetWeaver, Certified for SAP NetWeaver and CA-ALE.

Supported



The NLINK Product Suite has built-in E-mail Alerts, Audit Logs, Trace Files and an IT Administrator’s Management console to conveniently manage and monitor the deployed interfaces.
