DBS team solutions

Upon the client’s agreement, a process order is created with reference to the client’s contract and the sales order. Through the integration between e-batch systems and SAP, data is exchanged between the two systems automatically. After the mixing process; the ready mix is loaded and transported to the construction site, then the planned quantity is compared against the actual quantity of the production process to complete the cycle. The client reviews the mixers, concrete pumps and their drivers information after receiving the ready-mix, then the financial constraints and the tax bills are established alongside reports concerning each client, batch plant or a product.
