IT strategy consulting for logistics
We plan your logistics IT with the use of suitable logistics software
IT strategy, selection and introduction of logistics IT
We network your logistics software with your logistics processes
Together with you, we define a future-proof IT strategy. Corporate development never stagnates in any area. In logistics IT, too, the requirements continue to increase with every company development. Logistics processes are becoming increasingly complex, so that your current enterprise resource planning system is no longer sufficient. As a result, your own IT strategy has to be adapted or even newly developed. This could be, for example, the introduction of a warehouse management system (WMS) or the optimisation and adaptation of your IT processes. We offer you a holistic strategy consulting concept, from process analysis and potential identification to comprehensive strategy development, so that you can remain competitive in the future.
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 throughput of goods and materials 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 concerned with optimising logistics IT and the fundamental IT strategy. For the future IT strategy of your company, we create a customised IT concept and detail in it the requirements and functions ‚which your IT solution must fulfil. Regardless of whether you want to modernise your existing IT system or introduce a new IT system.
Our expertise ranges from the selection and implementation of SAP WM / EWM to autonomous warehouse management software (front-end solution) that is connected to your HOST system via an interface.

The path to an optimal logistics IT strategy
Optimising your IT structures helps you to exploit potential that you are currently leaving unused
In order to develop an optimal IT strategy for you and to gain an understanding of your requirements and needs, we first record, analyse and document your current IT processes. Regardless of whether you want to modernise your existing warehouse management system or introduce a new warehouse management system (WMS), for example. We take into account all regular logistics processes from goods receipt to goods issue, including labelling, transport, storage and picking. Special processes such as inventory, transport (to and from the customer) or customer billing are part of our process analysis. We pursue a holistic approach including all adjacent logistics processes. The process manual we create thus provides a global overview of your process landscape.
We carry out the analysis and the target conception together with you within concept workshops. In the concept workshops we lay the foundation for your future IT strategy. By recording your ACTUAL processes, we have fundamentally developed an understanding of your logistics processes, the logistics systems and facilities 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 their daily handling of the existing IT system, your employees have the relevant expertise and valuable insights that we incorporate into the planning of the future logistics IT.
From the results of the concept workshops, we create and evaluate different strategic approaches. 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 always takes place in close cooperation with you and your employees. Finally, we summarise the results of the workshop into a recommendation for you.
