WHINT CurrencyRates (On-Premise Edition)

This Integration Package for SAP Process Orchestration (PRO)/ SAP PI is a turn-key solution to retrieve currency rates from different data feeds into SAP Business Suite. No additional development is needed on SAP side, only a simple ALE IDoc inbound processing partner profile needs to be configured. You will receive an automatic update of the exchange rates into SAP (table TCURR) via a standard IDoc.
