How does the SAP ERP - E-ink Label Add-on work?

With the SAP ERP - E-ink Label Add-on from e-shelf-labels and 4process, labels are managed within your existing SAP ERP system. The advantage: You do not need to acquire any additional software or other new technologies and can operate in the familiar user interfaces (SAP GUI or SAP FIORI). The implementation of the electronic labels is also simple, making the application uncomplicated and intuitive.

By entering the ID of the individual E-Ink labels or scanning the barcode on the housing, the label assignment is done within your SAP system, where you now have an overview of all labels and their status (e.g. battery indicator). Errors on the label are highlighted in color so that the corresponding electronic tag can be quickly identified and replaced. The seamless integration means that you can find all the necessary information in your ERP software.

Once the E-Ink labels are entered into the system, the digital labels can be integrated into the processes. The so-called Digital Label Broker establishes the link to the middleware SmaSS and passes on the information to be displayed from the SAP ERP system, such as process steps, material information or units of measure. The SmaSS middleware then takes care of the transfer to the assigned label and the update of the displays. The entire process takes only a few seconds, which means that the data can be displayed almost in real time.
