17 Mar Improve warehousing efficiency: a new way to empower your workers
Navigating large warehouses to pick stock efficiently without conflicting with other staff members or machinery can be challenging. Stock levels and availability can change quickly between receiving orders and picking products, making it difficult to have accurate information on hand as it is needed. However, Acclimation’s newly released Warehouse Management App extends SAP solutions right into the hands of warehouse users, so they can improve efficiency from wherever they’re working.
The Warehouse Management App is designed and managed by the Acclimation Mobile Logistics department, and is a cost-effective, device-agnostic application that lets warehouse staff more effectively and self-sufficiently manage and navigate warehousing operations.
The Warehouse Management App can help improve warehousing efficiencies in five key ways:
- SAP integration: the Warehouse Management App integrates seamlessly with all SAP systems, including SAP S/4HANA, SAP ERP Central Component (ECC), and SAP Business ByDesign.
- Local connectivity and security: Acclimation’s app uses your local Wi-Fi network, taking advantage of the security of existing network connections and integrating data encryption to ensure the ongoing security of user data.
- Increased accessibility: for use in larger warehouses or warehouses with unsecured networks, the Warehouse Management App can automatically switch over to 3G/4G mobile networks, letting users implement greenfield or seasonal warehouses without requiring specific infrastructure installation. The app also works in conjunction with existing radio frequency (RF) infrastructure for a staged decommission of ageing RF infrastructure.
- Cloud-based: the app can be used in temporary or seasonal warehouses as necessary, letting users simply enter the warehouse, switch the app on, connect to the local network, and start work.
- Third-party access: users can facilitate access for third-party logistics providers to the app via tablets, letting logistics providers access direct SAP updates in real time as they update stock.
Acclimation has drawn on its deep experience in the warehouse functions of SAP to develop a deeply integrated, cleverly designed, and well-built application with a highly intuitive user interface to bring more value to customers. We’re committed to supporting our customers and their changing needs and requirements, and the Warehouse Management App helps us provide more support to customers in their warehouses.
As the app continues to evolve and improve, Acclimation will help you optimise the systems you already use to ensure you are getting the best value, and automatic updates will be available upon opt-in.
Our Warehouse Management App is now available for use on Android and Windows devices and can be packaged and deployed for iOS solutions. For more information on Acclimation’s Warehouse Management App click here or contact the Acclimation team for a demo.
