PTV xServer Business Connector for use with SAP©

How does the PTV xServer Business Connector for use with SAP© work?

The PTV xServer Business Connector is structured in three different levels of solutions: a technical and functional connector and an out-of-the-box solution.


The technical connector forms the foundation of the solution and implements the link of the PTV interface with SAP. In other words, the PTV xServer APIs are transformed into SAP ABAP APIs, ready for development by using the application server “SAP NeatWeaver” version 7.4 or higher.


Functional connectors for applications such as address qualification, distance calculation, map display, emissions and toll calculation eliminate the need for extensive business logic development. Instead, all relevant parameters are already pre-configured and ready for use. As the functional connectors are modularly designed, they can be installed flexibly depending on your requirements. 


Out-of-the-box solutions help implement a performant routing service in SAP ERP or SAP TM embedded in their customised SAP processes.
