I started a new company that develops web dashboard software for manufacturers. It is an all web based app (requires no installation for client) which processes the weekly EDI raw sales activity data sent from retailers. I have been discussing this product with a supply chain manager working for clients in China when their SAP system is not working properly. He has been in the business for a while and told me that our business could offer a very valuable quick lifeline solution for reporting this sales information to clients while the SAP system is being worked on or even be a reporting replacement. All we need is the weekly EDI 852 files to run through our parsers and that is it. We can have the reports up immediately as a temporary fix.
You sir, are going to be sued. "Their SAP system is not working properly?" This is blasphemous. SAP is the most cutting edge, state-of-the art technology in ALL OF THE UNIVERSE. They have 1,259,539 customers worldwide!!! If you don't believe me, just check out their website! You must be mistaken.
