FIS Informationssysteme und Consulting GmbH once again proves its strengths in the implementation of SAP EWM. This is confirmed by the renewed validation by the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics (IML) and the listing at warehouse-logistics, the leading portal for warehouse management systems (WMS). The special competence of FIS lies in the EWM implementation as well as in the connection to ERP core processes.
Every year, the prestigious seal of quality is awarded to experts in warehouse management solutions. Beforehand, the providers answer an extensive catalog of questions with around 3,700 aspects and undergo a dedicated workshop. After successful completion, qualified logistics software companies receive the system validation. FIS has already had this validation since 2016, underlining its expertise in the implementation of SAP EWM (Extended Warehouse Management) projects.
FIS has also been promoting cooperation with Fraunhofer institutes for years. Therefore, the FIS logistics team is currently also supporting two Fraunhofer projects in the project-accompanying committee Together with the Technical University of Munich, Fraunhofer IIS and other project partners, the participants are working on logistical process optimizations and technological developments. On the one hand, this is a project for the implementation of a “pick-by-tag” picking system with RFID tags. The second “SMARACKT” project (Smart Rack Monitoring) deals with intelligent object and fill level monitoring at the rack. New developments are consequently driven forward jointly by business and science. Ultimately, all industry participants benefit from the results of these projects.
The IT specialists at FIS are also constantly developing industry-independent enhancements around the SAP software to optimize functionality and user experience. The latest developments in this area include mobile apps for distribution logistics, which can be used, for example, to track truck transport routes or trigger electronic confirmation of delivery receipt when goods are delivered, without the customer having taken delivery of the goods in person. Larger projects have recently been carried out in the mechanical engineering and chemical industries, for example.
