As part of a global SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) implementation, we are excited to be working with a leading industrial automation company to deploy our SAP mobility solution, PreBilt™ powered by Neptune, maximising the benefits of SAP EWM.

We are currently implementing SAP EWM at the customer’s German warehouse, which supports sales across central Europe and is serving as an initial site before the solution is rolled out to additional locations. Users at the site were struggling to use SAP EWM’s standard mobile solution, ITS Mobile, finding the interface difficult to navigate. As part of our involvement in the customer’s EWM project, we were able to demonstrate the capabilities of PreBilt for EWM, which offers a simple and more intuitive user interface, as well as enhanced functionalities and robust connection handling.

We will now be deploying the solution for 20 users in the customer’s German warehouse, easily configuring the solution according to requirements. A second phase is planned for a further 20 users in Germany, before being rolled out to additional warehouses throughout the customer’s global supply chain network. PreBilt for EWM will allow the site’s core processes to be easily executed on one user-friendly application: goods receipt, internal movements, physical inventory, warehouse enquiry, picking, packing, and loading will all be covered by the solution.

PreBilt for EWM also provides the ability to display pictures for visual product identification and capture images, which will enable total traceability and accountability across the supply chain, providing evidence in case of stock discrepancies or damaged goods. The analytics capability also contributes to end-to-end supply chain visibility, providing real-time key metrics from SAP to inform business decisions for improved operational efficiencies.

To ensure all users are comfortable using PreBilt for EWM, we will be delivering knowledge transfer sessions, as well as supplying user and configuration guides. Furthermore, our experienced technical support team will work closely with the internal team at the warehouse to ensure that PreBilt for EWM continues to operate at optimum performance levels.

Commenting on our latest win, our head of sales, Paul Fraser, said “We are pleased to be working with this industrial automation company to implement PreBilt for EWM.”

“Struggling to navigate the complex ITS mobile screens, the customer required a new solution for its warehouse operatives. With its smart and simple layout, that can be easily configured to only display relevant fields, we were able to demonstrate PreBilt for EWM’s enhanced capabilities and improved user interface to the customer, which will undoubtedly help it to fully realise the benefits of SAP EWM.”
