GTM X1 = Extended GTM Version 1

As mentioned earlier, SAP Global Trade Management is not intended as an already finished solution.
Very many user requirements must be developed in addition within an implentation project, because there are no possibilities for settings in the standard customizing of GTM. Althaugh GTM makes his subsequent documents in SD and MM, there are not the same existing possibilities for settings directly in GTM. This should be better now with GTM X1!

Also GTM X1 is not an already finished ready to use product or software solution for your business! However, we go with GTM X1 already more clearly into this direction!

GTM X1 is a template for a faster implentation of SAP GTM and it based on the features of SAP GTM and it integrates the possibilities of SD, MM, FI and TRM. It takes advantage of the capabilities of GTM also with using of TEW (Trading Execution Workbench), Association and Expense Management. It's conducting the experiences of many and various GTM projects, mainly because many reqierements were repeating there very often.

With SAP GTM the purchase and sales will be supported very good, not just for trading companies.
Mit GTM X1 also your processes will be simplified considerably. For example just 2 transactions are needed for most processes. While this is already planned with GTM and using TEW by SAP, GTM X1 is performing this in a consequent way.

GTM X1 extends SAP GTM and blends in with its own customizing into the SAP standard for many functions. It provides many pre-configured processes that can be used directly or as a template. A rough overview of the features of GTM X1 is listed below.

GTM X1 is designed to simplify the implentation and application of SAP GTM and not to replace it!

Important: GTM X1 is not an already finshed product and also not a ready to use solution and therefore it bounds as well as SAP GTM to an implementation project!
