The Graphic West system is one of the printing systems that print the serials generated from SAP ATTP or Serial Number Management (SNM) systems. In the Movilitas.Cloud application, you can create Graphic West channel that will establish a connection to the Graphic West system over an FTP server.
With this channel, you can perform the following functions:
- Configure the FTP server and enter the FTP setting details in the channel while creating the Graphic West channel.
- Create the printing orders using the Manufacturer application and upload the .CSV file to the FTP server.
Currently, the Graphic West channel can be used in the following applications:
