Future-proof solutions for SAP Warehouse Management and logistics by FIS

The requirements with regard to advanced warehouse logistics are steadily increasing: E-commerce, an increasing cross-company networking of supply chains and ongoing digitization are only three out of many topics logistics managers have to face. Here, decisive success factors are, above all, flexibility and time saving.

 

Flexible warehouse processes in connection with suitable warehouse logistics software enable companies to meet changed customer expectations with low handling and storage costs. Suitable technologies automate warehouse logistics and manual error-prone work steps are largely omitted.

Warehouse management and implementation WITH SAP AND FIS

Sustainable warehouse management and logistics place high demands on inventory management and warehouse management software. Elaborate processes are used to cover the individual work steps in the warehouse and to support them in every single phase when optimizing your SAP Warehouse Management. At the same time, the optimal integration of all upstream and downstream processes of the supply chain is a great challenge. As a qualified partner, FIS ensures a seamless linking and interconnection of the process steps and all systems involved.

 

Warehouse logistics with full supply chain networking in the ERP system (Enterprise Resource Planning) is one of the great strengths of FIS. Whichever SAP systems and components for inventory management you choose - the FIS logistics specialists offer you individual and competent consulting as well as field-tested and future-proof optimizations for your warehouse logistics solution. This applies equally to detailed analyses and consulting as well as to the implementation of an advanced warehouse management system. This includes SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) or SAP Warehouse Management (WM or also LES/WM) designed for less complex logistics systems. Alternatively, the FIS professionals develop an individualized warehouse management within your SAP environment tailored to your personal requirements. Whether it is S/4HANA or ERP ECC 6.0 – FIS deals flexibly and intensively with your individual SAP logistics challenges and finds the right warehouse management software solution for you.
