SAP's Business Technology Platform (BTP) Templated Integration for UPS


A templated UPS integration delivered by Navigator Business Solutions

The Navigator SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition BTP Flows act as a secure bridge between your shipping software and SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition, streamlining your shipping processes, improving accuracy, and providing better visibility into your inventory and order fulfillment efficient operation and happier customers.

By integrating SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition with UPS CrossWare using Navigator’s BTP Flows, you gain:

  • Enhanced Security: Protect your sensitive SAP data with a secure access layer.
  • Reduced Errors: Eliminate manual data entry mistakes.
  • Increased Efficiency: Automate shipment processing and order updates.
  • Improved Visibility: Maintain accurate inventory and order status.
  • Automated Freight Billing: Freight cost can be added to the customer’s invoice automatically


Security First: This integration prioritizes security. UPS CrossWare, the shipping software, can only access specific information it needs from your SAP system through a secure layer provided by the SAP BTP. BTP acts like a gatekeeper, ensuring CrossWare doesn't have unrestricted access to your sensitive SAP data.

Seamless Data Flow: Once you create a shipment in CrossWare/WorldShip, BTP automatically retrieves relevant information like handling units (packaging details), tracking numbers, and shipping costs. This eliminates the need for manual data entry, reducing errors and saving time.

Automatic Order Updates: The retrieved data is then used to update your sales order and delivery documents in SAP S/4HANA Cloud. Additionally, Navigator’s BTP digital bridge automatically posts the goods' movement for delivery, signifying that the items have been shipped. This ensures your inventory records and order status are always accurate. Creates a "delivery posting" in SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition, instructing your warehouse to prepare the items for shipment. This automates a key step in the fulfillment process, saving your team time and effort, avoiding the need for double entering the order and shipping information.

Imagine a secure and efficient way to handle your UPS shipments directly from your SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition system. That's what the Navigator's UPS BTP Flows integration provides.

What is a templated integration solution?

The power of pre-built integrations

Running a business involves a complex juggling act, and at the center of it all might be your ERP system. It handles essential tasks like inventory, finance, order management, and more. But what happens when your ERP needs to talk to other software, like your customer relationship manager (CRM) or online store?

This is where a templated integration solution, like SAP's Business Technology Platform (BTP) delivered by Navigator Business Solutions, comes in. Imagine them as bridges connecting your ERP system to other programs. These solutions offer pre-made connectors and configurations that address common scenarios, saving you time and effort. They act as a springboard, allowing you to link your ERP to other systems quickly and efficiently, while keeping the core of your ERP solution 'clean' and free from messy code.


What are the benefits of a templated integration solution?

Templated integrations offer a number of benefits such as:

  • Faster Implementation: Templates can significantly reduce the time and resources required for integration compared to custom coding.
  • Reduced Costs: Pre-built solutions are typically more cost-effective than custom development.
  • Lower Risk of Errors: Templates have likely been tested and refined, minimizing the chance of integration errors.
  • Standardized Processes: Templates ensure consistent data flow and processes between your ERP and other systems.

What is SAP's Business Technology Platform (BTP)?

One unified platform for everything.

The SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP) is a unified platform for all code that runs a modern business. Instead of multiple products and codebases that need integration and periodic upgrades as an organization grows or evolves, BTP is a universal software platform that atomizes business software functions and allows these functions to integrate and keep running as a business grows or evolves.
