We network your logistics software with your logistics processes
IT strategy consulting for logistics
We plan your logistics IT with the use of suitable logistics software
Together with you we define a future-proof IT strategy. The development of the company does not stagnate in any area. Also in logistics IT the requirements increase with every company development. Logistics processes are becoming increasingly complex, so that your current merchandise management system is no longer sufficient. This means that your own IT strategy has to be adapted or even newly developed. This could be, for example, the implementation of a warehouse management system (WMS) or the optimization and adaptation of your IT processes. We offer you a holistic strategy consulting concept, from process mapping to potential identification and comprehensive strategy development, so that you remain competitive in the future.

Our focal points in IT strategy consulting
Adapt or redevelop IT strategy
We define the best possible logistics IT solution for your company
New process requirements due to company growth and the associated higher goods and material throughput in logistics, the automation of systems and logistics facilities or the outsourcing of logistics areas to an external logistics service provider are just some of the reasons why companies are looking to optimize logistics IT and the basic IT strategy.
For the future IT strategy of your company, we create a customized IT concept and detail the requirements and functions ‚which your IT solution must fulfill. Regardless of whether you want to modernize your existing IT system or whether you want to implement a new IT system.
Always think future-oriented: An optimization of your IT structures helps you to exploit potentials that you currently leave unused.
The way to an optimal logistics IT strategy
1. IT process mapping
In order to develop an optimal IT strategy for you as well as to gain an understanding of your requirements and needs, we first of all record, analyze and document your current IT processes. Regardless of whether you want to modernize your existing Warehouse Management System or implement a new Warehouse Management System (WMS). We consider all regular logistics processes from goods receipt to goods issue including labeling, transport, storage and picking. Special processes such as inventory, transport (from and to the customer) or customer billing are part of our process mapping. We pursue a holistic approach including all adjacent logistics processes. The process handbook we create thus provides a global overview of your process landscape.
2. requirements analysis
We carry out the analysis and the target concept together with you in concept workshops. In the concept workshops we lay the foundation for your future IT strategy. By recording your ACTUAL processes, we have developed a fundamental understanding of your logistics processes, the logistics systems and equipment you use, your master and warehouse movement data, your picking strategy and your current level of automation. Based on our project experience we now identify your process potentials. We actively involve your employees, as they are an essential part of the concept workshops and project phase. Through the daily use of the existing IT system, your employees have the appropriate expertise and valuable knowledge, which we incorporate into the planning of the future logistics IT.
3. Comparison of variants, evaluation and recommendation
From the results of the concept workshops we create and evaluate different strategic approaches. In doing so, we compare the effort, costs and benefits of each variant. The variants are modular and therefore flexible, so that we can, for example, develop the best solution for your company from 3 variants. The final development is always done in close cooperation with you and your employees. The results of the workshop are finally summarized in a recommendation for you.
