Future-proof — with the use of the right ware­house software

As a WMS expert we provide you in all project phases

WMS selection, imple­men­tation and realization

We support you during the entire project duration 

The imple­men­tation and use of a ware­house man­agement system (WMS) or ware­house man­agement system (WMS) in logistics is almost indis­pensable. A WMS brings the nec­essary per­for­mance and trans­parency to your ware­house. The WMS con­trols and manages ware­house stocks, storage loca­tions, storage bins, picking and replen­ishment strategies and forms the interface between the ERP system and the material flow com­puter (MFR) if you use con­veyor tech­nology, storage and retrieval machines, robotics, stretchers or similar auto­mated systems. From an eco­nomic point of view, when choosing a WMS, you should make sure that it is opti­mally adapted to the respective logistics pro­ce­dures and logistics processes. The scope of the system, i.e. the func­tion­al­ities, should also not be larger than nec­essary. Too much com­plexity can lead to a reduction in the reaction time of the system, as well as to errors in operation.

Choosing the right WMS / LVS

The selection must be well thought through, as it is of strategic impor­tance. After all, by selecting and imple­menting a WMS, you are entering into a long-term rela­tionship with the logistics system and therefore also with the system sup­plier. Therefore, careful planning, goal-ori­ented and com­pre­hensive project man­agement in all project phases is very important. In these phases, the foun­dation is laid for long-term suc­cessful oper­ation and optimal support of the logis­tical processes by the WMS.

As a WMS expert, we support you during the WMS imple­men­tation, during the awarding of the con­tract to the right system provider, during the entire imple­men­tation and com­mis­sioning phase and are also at your side during the follow-up support / sta­bi­lization phase.

The way to a secure imple­men­tation of a WMS

1. Def­i­n­ition of the WMS requirements

We define the WMS require­ments in coop­er­ation with your employees. In concept work­shops we determine the require­ments and func­tion­al­ities of your future WMS. By recording your ACTUAL processes, we have gained an under­standing of your process land­scape in advance and iden­tified process potential. The results from the process poten­tials and concept workshop form the basis for the cre­ation of the spec­i­fi­cation sheet.

2. Prepa­ration of the tender documents

Fol­lowing the WMS requirement def­i­n­ition, the cre­ation of the spec­i­fi­cation sheet and other doc­u­ments nec­essary for the invi­tation to tender takes place. The requirement spec­i­fi­cation forms the basis for a detailed offer from the sup­pliers and sub­se­quently for a suc­cessful software introduction.

Par­allel to the prepa­ration of the tender doc­u­ments, we carry out a sounding of the market. Due to our many years of expertise, we know the market of sup­pliers and systems very well. You will receive a com­plete bidder list with all rel­evant data on the system provider. You now determine which sup­pliers are eli­gible for the tender.

3. Imple­men­tation of the tender

We take over the com­plete tender man­agement for you — from sending out the tender doc­u­ments, answering sup­plier queries, orga­nizing and car­rying out sup­plier tours, eval­u­ating offers and a final eval­u­ation by us. In addition, we rec­ommend ref­erence visits to the sup­pliers, which we can also organize for you. On this basis you can now decide which sup­plier is the right partner for you.

4. Con­tract nego­ti­a­tions and award of contract

We are happy to advise and support you in the final phase of con­tract nego­ti­a­tions. Expe­rience in con­tract nego­ti­a­tions com­bined with logistics know-how make us the ideal partner for your nego­ti­a­tions. We identify pos­sible cost levers and use them specif­i­cally in the nego­ti­a­tions to achieve the best pos­sible offer price. We also review the con­tract doc­u­ments from a legal perspective.
