SAP EHS Product Compliance vs Decernis gComply Plus

Hi All,

We want to evaluate our products against different regulations across the world and I came across two possibilities :

1. SAP Product Compliance

2. Decernis gComply Plus (integrated to our SAP EHS system)

could you share your experience of working on any of the products above?

Any Comparison in terms of:

  1. Ease of Setup
  2. Data that is read for the compliance checks?
  3. What data does Descernis use from the SAP System?
  4. Ease of updating the Rules in Product Compliance Modules?
  5. SAP States that Product Compliance is for Discreet industries - Can it be applied to Process industries? what are the challenges in doing so?

I assume We would need the component extension for SAP EHS Upgrade for Activating Product Compliance.( Currently on EHP 7, SP12)

Thanks in Advance for your inputs.

Regards,

Gaurish

    Dear Gaurish

    you can not compare "GComyply plus" with what SAP is delivering. Please check intensively the corresponding internet pages of Decernis and compare to SAP content pages.

    Because of some reasons I am not allowed to share more insight

    Only some hints can be provided

    1. Ease of Setup => Should be done quickly
    2. Data that is read for the compliance checks? => You can not compare to EHS classic, Is "special" (legal part is different tp SAP EHS classic)
    3. What data does Descernis use from the SAP System? => Conten of GComply is changing as content of SAP content is changing. PLease get in Touch with Decernis to get more details
    4. Ease of updating the Rules in Product Compliance Modules? => assumed to happen easy etc.
    5. SAP States that Product Compliance is for Discreet industries - Can it be applied to Process industries? what are the challenges in doing so?

    SAP is using terms as "Discrete" and "Process" industries. These are not "good" terms. You should map them as: those which produces chemical, and those who are "downstream" user. As a "producer" of a chemical is always a "downstream" user, the terms are not good.

    Hi Christoph,

    I agreed with your POV that both cannot be directly compared, but I thinking of them as two different tools that we can use to solve the same problem in different ways. Will look at alternate sources of information on both. Thanks for your inputs as always :)
