Implement warehouse management system
As an expert for logistics software implementation,
we accompany you in all project phases
Selection, introduction and implementation of your warehouse management system
We support you during the entire project
The introduction and use of a warehouse management system (WMS) in logistics is almost indispensable. Warehouse management software 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, stacker cranes, robotics, stretchers or similar automated systems. When choosing warehouse software, it should be ensured from an economic point of view that it is optimally adapted to the respective logistics operations and logistics processes. The scope of the warehouse management 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.
The selection of the optimal warehouse software
We will determine the best solution for you
The selection of the warehouse management system must be well thought through, as it is of strategic importance. With the selection and introduction of a WMS, you enter into a long-term relationship with the logistics system and therefore also with the system supplier. Therefore, careful planning, targeted and comprehensive project management in all project phases is of great importance. In these phases, the foundation is laid for long-term successful operation and for optimal support of the logistical processes by the logistics software.
As an expert for the introduction of logistics software, we support you in the selection of the WMS, in the awarding of the contract and during the entire implementation and commissioning and are also at your side in the aftercare / stabilisation phase.

The path to the safe introduction of a warehouse management system
We take over — your focus remains the day-to-day business
We define the logistics software 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 potentials from this. The results from the process potentials and the concept workshop form the basis for the creation of the specifications.
The requirements definition is followed by the creation of the specifications and other documents necessary for the tender. The specifications form the basis for a detailed offer from the suppliers and subsequently for a successful WMS introduction. Due to our many years of expertise, we know the market of suppliers and systems very well. You will receive a comprehensive list of bidders with all relevant data on the system provider.
We take over the complete tender management for you — from sending out the tender documents, answering supplier queries, organising and conducting supplier tours, evaluating the bids and a final evaluation by us. In addition, we recommend carrying out reference visits to the suppliers, which we can also organise for you. On this basis, you can now decide which supplier is the right partner for you.
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 optimal partner for your negotiations. We identify possible cost levers and use them specifically in the negotiations to achieve the best possible offer price. In addition, we review the contract documents from a legal perspective.
