INTRODUCING EVERY ANGLE R2017

This new release enhances Every Angle through the inclusion of a large degree of new functionality and additional insight and intelligence, reinforcing our unique self‑service analytics capabilities and distancing ourselves from other BI tools that are only able to report or visualize data from SAP.

R2017 contains the following enhancements:

  • Now fully understands and supports SAP’s new Industry Solution for the clothing industry: FMS – Fashion Management Solution.
  • Contains enhanced logic that understands complicated business scenarios in SAP that do not follow normal business flows. These include processes such as intercompany sales, the sale of non‑stock items such as services and processes like Milestone Billing.
  • Provides new functionality such as enhanced Supply / Demand matching logic, new bottleneck types, enhanced shelf life management and control of planning materials.
  • New functionality to understand and report on the status between purchasing and sales orders and their preceding contracts, schedule agreements or outline agreements.
  • Contains an all new control system for the Every Angle administrators, enabling greatly enhanced monitoring and control of Every Angle usage, insight in authorization setup and statistics on the refresh performance.
  • A multitude of technical and performance related enhancements to reduce processing time.

Enhanced Functionality

Service and Value Items

Every Angle now provides all of its added intelligence fields - such as order status, bottlenecks, delivery reliability and margin calculations - on value items as well as physical items. This means that Every Angle now provides companies who sell services and value items with insights not available from any other tool, including SAP.

Supply and Demand Analysis

Perhaps the most unique aspect of Every Angle is its ability to understand complex cross‑process scenarios. R2017 contains a number of improvements to further increase the power and flexibility of this capability, creating enhanced value and more insight to supply chain planners.

Shelf Life Expiry Date Management

R2017 now contains the capability to sort batches based on their remaining shelf life, ensuring that stock is rotated properly and greatly helping to reduce product obsolescence and unexpected stock write‑downs.

intercompany

New Scenarios and Business Process Support:

Intercompany Sales Orders

Every Angle now fully understands the supply and demand relationship of inter‑company sales orders that move stock between business units in different company codes.

customerservice

New Functionality - Order to Cash:

Customer Service by originally confirmed delivery date

Every Angle can now report on sales performance – past and open – based on the originally confirmed delivery date. This is extremely difficult for companies to do, and usually requires significant amounts (years) of ABAP development – often without success.

sapfashion

Industry Solution Support:

SAP Fashion Management Solution (FMS)

SAP has recently replaced its industry solution for the clothing industry (AFS - Apparel and Footwear Solution), with a new solution called FMS (Fashion Management Solution).

Functional Improvements

A series of functional improvements have been made that resolve tricky challenges with SAP, and therefore differentiate Every Angle by creating solutions and not just reports. These are as follows:

Links to Contracts

Special Stock Valuations

Following on from point 1, Every Angle can now allocate the G/L account for each stock batch based on material, batch, sales order and project stock valuation.

Planning Materials

Planning Materials

Every Angle can now handle ‘Planning Materials’ (MRP‑4) where demand of one SKU (the active SKU) consumes the forecast of a more generic planning SKU.

Requirements Date of Stock Transfer

Requirements Date of Stock Transfer

Every Angle now covers all SAP scenarios and is consistent with the requirements date presented in SAP (via transaction MD04) at all times.

Stock Transfer within Plant

Stock Transfer within Plant

Every Angle now supports stock transfers within the same plant – i.e. from storage location to storage location, or from MRP area to MRP area. Normally these are between plants.

New Fields

R2017 adds to the already extensive list of additional fields, status checks, calculations and insights that Every Angle provides over and above other BI tools.

R2017 contains fields designed to:

Simplify Financial Analysis
